Balsamic Marinated Skirt Steak (Great for Camping!)
Balsamic Marinated Skirt Steak


  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar 
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary coarse salt and ground pepper 
  • 1 ½ pounds skirt steak



In a resalable plastic bag or shallow baking dish, combine vinegar, sugar, garlic, rosemary, 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Pierce meat all over with fork; add to marinade, and turn to cost. Let marinate at room temperature at least 15 minutes or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day. Heat grill to high; oil grates. Remove steaks from marinade, allowing excess to drip off. Grill steaks 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Slice into thin pieces. This goes well as a topping to summer salads!

For camping-prep ahead of time. Make marinade. Place steak and marinade in a freezer friendly bag and freezer flat. This will last days in your cooler on ice. Monitor to make sure it is mostly defrosted by the time you want to cook.
