Talk about a crowd-pleasing dinner in a flash. I like to keep a couple of these herbed skirt steaks on hand in the spring and summer for last-minute outdoor get-togethers with family and friends. I’ll throw a couple of potatoes in the oven and whatever other veggies or fruit I have on hand on the grill (in the summer, we love to grill peaches, pineapple and corn), and everyone’s happy. The lime juice and tomato sauce tenderize the steak, and the coconut aminos lend a delicious brininess to the herbs. It’s so, so delicious.
This meal can be made into a freezer meal (see “Make it a freezer meal” instructions below.) To make freezer meal prep easier, I suggest investing in baggy stands to hold your freezer bags upright, and reusable freezer bags to cut down on single use plastics.
