Skirt steak with Moroccan Spice Rub and Yogurt Sauce

Filed under: — Brian @ 5:11 pm

This is a recipe I found in a cooking magazine. Melissa and I really like it. It’s kind of spicy and really easy to make (takes about 1/2 hour to prep, maybe 10 minutes to cook on the grill).

Spice rub:

1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp light brown sugar
1.5 tbsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp caraway seeds, crushed
1/2 tsp ground pepper

Skirt steak:
1.25 lbs skirt steak, cut into 6″ strips
3 tbsp plus 1.5 tsp moroccan spice rub (from above)
3/4 cup plain yogurt
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, smashed
1 tbsp jalapeno
1 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper

To make spice rub, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Rub steaks w/3 tbsp spice rub and let stand 5 minutes.

In medium bowl, combine yogurt, scallions, garlic, jalapenos and remaining spice rub. Stir in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Brush steaks lightly with olive oil and grill over high heat until desired doneness.

Serve over pita bread and lettuce.

    This is a delicious combination of flavors. Wonderful aroma, spicy sweet and savory all at once.

    I love spicy food, but our result was almost too hot…especially with the sauce. I used an Indian red chili powder though, not the typical American brown stuff. I would omit the jalapeno from the yogurt sauce, and really cut down on the amount of rub added to the yogurt sauce. Mine was so hot I put an extra dollop of plain (thick, Greek style) yogurt on my plate to dip my pita into and cool it off!

    Also, we used thinly sliced club steaks, but they were very tasty and grilled up fast.
