Sizzling summer skirt steak with herb salad recipe

While I would happily eat steak all year round, and do, summer is a particularly good time to enjoy our favourite meat. The sun is shining, you can grill or barbecue, eat socially with friends in the garden or al fresco wherever you like.

Brits value their summer like no other nation so it’s only fair to deliver a recipe that honours that. That’s what this sizzling summer skirt steak with herb salad recipe does. It takes an underrated cut of meat and turns it into something delicious while still being healthy.

The Stone Grill is open all year round and will be happy to cook your steak your way to your liking. If you do eat steak at home, this skirt steak with herb salad is ideal. You could add some oven chips, sweet potato fries or baked potato for a little more filling or buy larger steaks. It is entirely up to you!
