The Skirt Steak is located near the plate, and is actually the diaphragm of the steer or heifer. This muscle helps the animal breath, and because of the pasture-raised lifestyle they lead, this muscle gets an incredible workout, which creates an awesome flavor and large muscle fibers. The Small Skirt steak is typically the "Outer Skirt" but, depending on the size of our beef, this cut can also be a small "Inner Skirt."
This thin cut only needs to be cooked over high heat for a very short period of time, 2-4 minutes per side. If it's too large for your pan, slice the steak in half or into thirds, lengthwise. In addition to making it easier to cook, slicing against the grain, which runs from top to bottom on the short side of the meat, will be a breeze.
