The outer skirt steak is a long, flavorful cut from the plate with a strong muscle grain. While inner skirt steaks are cheaper and the classic fajita cut, outer skirt steaks are prized as a more affordable center of plate cut. They contain intramuscular fat that helps keep them juicy & flavorful after high heat cooking methods.

This cut marinates well and should be thinly sliced against the grain for optimum tenderness.

These skirt steaks are sold with their outer fat & membrane peeled off, ensuring better yields and less work before cooking.

Applications: Grill, Sear.
