About this cut
Juicy and well-marbled, skirt steak is a thin, flat cut with a satisfying beefy flavor and just the right amount of chew that's perfect for marinating and cooks up quickly. With their carefully balanced diet of pasture, hay and grain, our beef is tender, well-marbled, and flavorful. How do we do it? Our cattle are raised sustainably on carefully managed US rangeland (never on deforested South American rainforest lands). Black Angus cattle are known for their superior taste, quality, and marbling. Our farmers have bred their herds to do well on pasture and produce tender, well-marbled meat. Our breeding, combined with our specialized diet and aging techniques, results in beef that is second to none. Try this Skirt Steak for your next weeknight fajita dinner (slice with the grain at a steep angle to maximize tenderness) and you're sure to enjoy the incredible flavor of this delicious cut.
Good to know: We soak our skirt steaks 2-3 times before packaging, but due to the koshering process, this is still a salty cut. If you are salt sensitive, you may wish to soak again in cold water for 30-60 minutes.
We take care every step of the way to make sure our meats are raised well, processed humanely, expertly butchered, carefully packaged, delivered seamlessly and prepared with confidence in your kitchen. It is our great pleasure to bring these delicious meats to your table. We look forward to feeding you soon!
Basic Cooking Technique:
Grill or pan-sear quickly over high heat.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

A hint of salt was okay, but it was overbearing. Note from Grow & Behold: Because of where skirt steak is cut, this can be a saltier cut from the kashering process. As noted in the product description, we recommend soaking in water prior to using!
Truly amazing !Not fatty l,so tender and tasty!So happy to try after hearing about grow and behold for years.

This skirt steak is amazing; tender and quite satisfying.
The meat was fresh and tasty. The whole family loved it
Just terrific and wonderful meat! We saute it with vegetables and it is moist and tasty.
I always buy the largest ones so that the steak is thicker. They are tender and cook in no time! Love them!!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
