The skirt steak is one of the most delicious cuts of beef, often favored by chefs for its tender consistency and succulent flavor. Our Wagyu Outside Skirt Steak, MS3 is one such cut, offering an unbeatably buttery and exquisite profile that marries with countless recipes. Since this meat comes from Wagyu cattle, it's streaked with intramuscular fat that infuses it with exquisite flavor. Wagyu beef is also more nutritious than regular beef, packed with Omega-3 fatty acids and lower in saturated fats.
The outside skirt steak comes from the cow's diaphragm. Whereas an inside skirt is taken from the plate section between brisket and flank, the outside skirt is taken from the flank itself, with a wider shape than the inside skirt. Since it's rather flat, it requires a deft hand when cooking. Let it acquire a brown crust evenly on the outside without overcooking the interior (ideally cooked to medium-rare). We recommend searing the meat on high heat, and browning it quickly so it doesn't cook through to the middle too much. This should only take approximately 1 or 2 minutes per side.
