  1. Combine vinegar, miso paste, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, and garlic in a small bowl. Stir until smooth.
  2. Spread miso mixture generously on both sides of skirt steaks. Sprinkle with black pepper. Allow to rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  3. Prepare a charcoal grill for medium-high heat. Place steak on the grill and cook without moving for about 2 minutes. Turn steaks 180 degrees to create cross-hatch grill marks, and cook another 2 minutes. Flip steaks and continue cooking until medium-rare to medium on the inside, and shiny on the outside, about 4 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 135 degrees F (57 degrees C). Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Turn steak 90 degrees for marks...180 keeps the lines the same...someone didn't do well with highschool math!

I give this three stars for the flavor. I made this following the recipe exactly. While I loved the flavor, the steak itself was tough. I cooked it to exactly 140 degrees (rare). This is the first time I have cooked skirt steak, and unless I can figure out why it was so tough (I couldn't even eat half of my serving. I gave up trying to chew it because my jaw ached) I won't be fixing this again.

KEEPER! I made this exactly according to the recipe and it was great. I had to go to the Asian store for the Miso Paste - it is in the refrigerated section. This is company worthy, for sure. I served it with grilled fresh pineapple & sugar snap peas with a simple green salad with Miso Sesame Dressing from this site. What a great meal!

Tried the recipe last night. Skirt steak is a cheap flavorful cut, perfect for marinades like this. I make a similar recipe, add mirin and maple syrup, on Sea Bass and broil in the oven. Yum! Next time I'll add maple syrup.

WOW!!! What's not to love about this!?!? This was of the best skirt steaks I have ever eaten, and I prepare it often using many different recipes. I made it exactly as written and it was perfect - no changes necessary - but I wouldn't expect any less from Chef John! Very tender and flavorful. I'm not sure why the other reviewer's steak was tough. Skirt steak needs to be cut against the grain. Miso paste can be obtained from any Asian market in the refrigerated section. Sure, it's not available in your everyday grocery store, but no reason to rate the recipe down for that! I'll definitely be making this for company and I know they'll be impressed!

I used on filet mignon and grilled it. It was very tasty and unique. My husband and teenage son loved it. I am going to try on salmon tonight. I would recommend to add two teaspoons of MIRIN, which Japanese use a lot for TERIYAKI or MIso based sauce. And for salmon, I would add a little bit of ginger to kill the fishy smell. Yummy!

Delicious!!! I don't know where you get your skirt steaks , jcoates, but it's definitely not cheap!!!

This was absolutely delicious!! Only reason for 4 stars is because of the difficulty of obtaining the yellow miso paste! Few ingredients, easy prep, love it and will do again!
