Broiled Skirt Steak with Orzo Pasta

Broiled Skirt Steak with Orzo Pasta

I’ve made a delicious meal! Broiled Skirt Steak with Orzo Pasta! It was easy…but of course I didn’t let my guests know that. I want them to think I’m a CulinaryRockstar even though this really only took less than 30 minutes to cook up if you exclude the marination time. Ok, so let get started…

Ingredients you’ll need:

(For the Meat and Marinade)
1Lb of Skirt Steak
Hand full of Fresh Cilantro
Hand full of Fresh Parsley
1/2-1 chopped White Onion
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
1/3 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste

(For the Orzo Pasta)
1 Cup of Orzo *Note follow cooking instructions on box to cook al dente and boil in salted water*
1/2  Cup chopped Red Onion
Hand full of chopped Green Onion
Hand full of chopped Parsley or Cilantro
1 large Cucumber chopped
1/2 Cup of sliced red or orange Grape Tomatoes
Red Wine Vinegar to taste
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste
Crumbled Feta Cheese to taste

 Put it together:

Skirt Steak: Take all of the ingredients listed for the marinade and process them in a food processor. Remember that when you add oil to any marinade, you always want to drizzle it in while the processor is processing! After everything is well blended the consistency should be  slightly think but not too watery. Next lay your cuts of meat down in a dish and smother with the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. After the marination time and the meat is ready to cook, turn the oven to broil. Shake off any excess marinade and place the meat in a oven safe dish lined with foil.  For medium cooked meat, broil each side for 3 to 4 minutes. Cook less time per side for medium rare and more time for well done. My suggestion is not to exceed more than 5 minutes per side! When the meat is cooked to your liking remove it from the oven and transfer to a cutting board, cover and let it rest for a few minutes before cutting.

Orzo Pasta: Boil about 1 cup of uncooked Orzo in a nice pot of salted water. Cook according to the al dente directions on the box. Once the pasta is ready, remove from the heat and drain. Place pasta in a large bowl and refrigerate to cool completely. After the pasta has cooled, add the olive oil, vinegar salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Next add the tomatoes, onions, cucumber and parsley or cilantro. Toss again. Finally add the crumbled feta and lightly toss to combine.  

How to serve: By now your skirt steak is ready to cut. Slice thinly and serve alongside a generous helping of the Orzo Pasta. Garnish with parsley and TAKE A BOW. ((((((APPLAUSE))))))

From me to you…
