Nutritional Information

Skirt steak has amazing flavor but be careful not to overcook. And always remember to slice against the grain. Pairs well with the Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages 2016.


  • 1 ounce ancho chiles, stemmed and seeded
  • Boiling water
  • 2 large garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil,
  • Salt Freshly ground pepper
  • 1.5 lb. skirt steak,
  • 3 oz. Arugula, nasturtium leaves, or watercress, for garnish


  • 1. In a heatproof bowl, cover the anchos with boiling water and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain the chiles, discarding any seeds and stems, and coarsely chop. In a food processor, pulse the chiles and garlic until finely chopped. Add the pumpkin seeds, almond butter, vinegar and 1/2 cup of warm water; pulse to a coarse paste. With the machine on, add the 1/2 cup of oil in a steady stream. Season with salt and pepper. Scrape the almond sauce into a bowl; don't worry if the oil separates.

Season the steak with salt and pepper or preferred rub and grill over high heat for about 6 minutes, turning once, until lightly charred. Let the steak rest, then thinly slice across the grain and serve with the almond sauce. Make Ahead
  • 3. The almond sauce can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
