Let’s get ready for Labor Day! Need an awesome BBQ recipe to make this weekend? You simply MUST try this fantastic creation from Christie at Zestuous. It was one of our favorite submissions from Saucy Mama’s Sliced Contest, and for good reason, too. A mouthwatering marinade + flavorful, “melty” butter + crunchy, zesty salsa = the perfect summertime meal. We promise, you’ll love it!

Garlic Chile Skirt Steak

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon course ground black pepper
2 lbs. skirt steak

Directions:

In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients, except steak. Pour the marinade into a zip-top bag. Add the steak, toss to coat and seal the bag. Marinade in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator 20 minutes before cooking.

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place the steaks on the grill. Grill for 5 minutes. Flip.

Grill for 5-7 more minutes, depending on desired doneness.
