Once was a time, Skirt Steak was a well-kept secret of butchers, but it’s come into popular cuisine over the years more and more. It's particularly common in fajitas, but when done right, it can be a versatile cut for a variety of meals. The thing about skirt steak is that you have to cook it just right and in particular carve it just right – i.e., across the grain – to get the most out of it. Anything less can be a disappointing experience. And we found that Fullblood Wagyu Skirt Steak, done right, cut right, can downright rival any other cut of beef in terms of flavor, mouthfeel, and even tenderness.
