This might be my favorite skirt steak marinade. That says a lot, because there are several marinades on the blog that I absolutely love. We have made this twice in the past few weeks. I can't get enough of it. I LOVE it! I might make it again this coming weekend. I'm addicted.
Even though this is marinated in a cup of hot sauce, it didn't have a lot (if any) heat. It tasted delicious. The sweetness from the brown sugar balances out the heat in the hot sauce. We love to use skirt steak with this marinade, but it would also be great on rib eyes or sirloin steak. It would probably be good on chicken and pork too. We always grill 2 pounds of skirt steak when we make this. We like to make quesadillas for lunch with the all leftovers.
Sweet Heat Steak Marinade
- 1 cup hot sauce
- 4 Tbsp worcestershire
- 2 Tbsp vinegar
- 2 Tbsp minced onion
- 2 Tbsp minced garlic
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 6 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 lb skirt steak or other cut of beef
Whisk together first 7 ingredients. Pour over meat and refrigerate for 4 hours, up to overnight.
Remove meat from marinade and grill until meat has reached desired temperature.
*Skirt steak cooks really quick. It only takes about 4-5 minutes per side.
