Tropical Grilled Skirt Steak with Pineapple Salsa

Healthy Fact of the Day

Skirt steak is a popular cut of beef for grilling due to its rich, beefy flavor and tender texture when cooked quickly over high heat. It's a staple in many Latin American and Caribbean cuisines, often served with fresh, vibrant salsas or chimichurri sauce.



For the Steak:

  • 1 1/2 lbs skirt steak
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and freshly ground
  • black pepper to taste


For the Pineapple Salsa:

  • 2 cups fresh pineapple, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt to taste



  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, salt, and black pepper to create a marinade.
  2. Place the skirt steak in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over the steak, ensuring it is evenly coated.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the diced pineapple, red onion, minced jalapeño, chopped cilantro, lime juice, and salt to make the pineapple salsa. Mix well and set aside.
  5. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  6. Remove the skirt steak from the marinade and discard the excess marinade.
  7. Grill the skirt steak for 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or longer if desired.
  8. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain.
  9. Serve the grilled skirt steak hot, topped with the fresh pineapple salsa.
