Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1⁄4 cup Tamarind concentrate
  • 2 Serrano Chiles, with seeds, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 3 tbsp. grated Piloncillo (Brown Sugar Cane)
  • 1 tbsp. Kosher Salt
  •  2 tbsp. Grape Seed Oil
  • 2 pounds Skirt Steak, cut into 4 pieces

Directions

  1. Whisk tamarind, chiles, piloncillo, salt, and 1 Tbsp. oil in a shallow baking dish. Add steak and turn to coat. Cover and chill at least for 2 hours.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a large skillet over high heat. Working in 2 batches and adding remaining oil between batches, cook steak until it starts to caramelize and it’s deeply browned, about 2–4 minutes per side for medium-rare.
