  • 6 medium cloves garlic
  • kosher salt
  • 1.5 lb. skirt steak, trimmed and cut into 4 pieces
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 oz. unsalted butter (4 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Peel the garlic cloves and smash them with the side of a chef’s knife. Sprinkle the garlic lightly with salt and mince it.

  2. Pat the steak dry and season generously on both sides with salt and pepper. In a heavy-duty 12-inch skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering hot. Add the steak and brown well on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer the steak to a plate and let rest while you make the garlic butter.

  3. In an 8-inch skillet, melt the butter over low heat. Add the garlic and cook, swirling the pan frequently, until lightly golden, about 4 minutes. Lightly salt to taste.

  4. Slice the steak, if you like, and transfer to 4 plates. Spoon the garlic butter over the steak, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve.
