Recipe by Chef John
"The problem with bottled sauces and marinades is that the only words you recognize on the ingredients list are ‘high fructose corn syrup,' and ‘dehydrated garlic.' Hopefully, you will see just how simple this sauce is to make. Not only is it MSG-free, but the flavor is far superior to any of those supermarket bottles."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Thank you Chef John - this is great marinade and made for a delicious fast and easy dinner. I would marinate the meat longer than the 15 minutes called for and as for cooking to 140 - I don't agree - this meat should be pink in the center and only takes a couple of minutes per side on a hot grill. Slice against the grain into thin strips and you can't go wrong. Delicious! Enjoy!
It has some great potential, I think a better cut of meat maybe worthy of a 5 star, I had the butcher cut two of the leanest flank steaks he could but they still weren't that good to me, going to try it with a London Broil cut in half to see if it makes a difference, I do not like any fat that I can taste in my steak....I did add about a teaspoon of ginger to it as well....
Wow! Very rarely do I think something is worthy of a 5 star rating, but this is simply the best skirt steak I have ever had! Not sure marinated it for 15 minutes would actually do the trick. Maybe it's true, but I didn't want tough meat. So to be sure, I marinated for about a day and a half, turning it over and over in the fridge to make sure all sides were nice and juicy! I can't wait to get more skirt steak to do it again! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
The Best I Ever Had...My Son (who does not like steak) Ask me to cook it all the time now!!! The Best Compliment You Can Get...(2 adjustments...1 teaspoon of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of fish sauce) ...Other Than That...Excellent!!!
This is AMAZING!! I didn't have skirt steak, so I used london broil sliced about 1" think and marinated it about 8 hours. While the steak was grilling, I heated up the marinade and put it over hot rice. This is a definite "keeper" and also quite an inexpensive meal. My family likes things on the "zippy" side, so I use 2 tablespoons of the chile paste instead of one.
I followed the recipe exactly but I marinated the skirt steak over night and then grilled it outside. DELICIOUS. My 11 year old loved it. When he tasted the steak he said "mmm....the steak is bomb". Excellent recipe. Thanks Chef John!
I prepared this recipe as written, fish sauce and all. I found it to be easy and delicious and will definitely be adding this to the list of keepers. As with most other Chef John recipes, there is not only a lot of flavor here, but it is also well-balanced. I also tried this marinade on pork tenderloin and flank steak and both were fantastic. I allowed those to marinate for 8-10 hours, though, because they were not as thin as skirt steak and I was looking for a serious hit of flavor.
Cooked under the broiler. Delicious and a hit.
