Prep: 15 minutes plus marinating and standing   Grill: 5 minutes   Serves: 4


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • ½ tablespoon lime zest
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1¼ pounds skirt steak (about ½-inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • Chopped fresh parsley and/or sprigs for garnish (optional)


  1. In small bowl, stir garlic, oil, juices, zests, salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper. Makes about ⅓ cup.
