Seared Skirt Steak with Grilled Treviso

Here’s the thing with my grill pan. Love it to death, but it makes my apartment look like its on fire from all the smoke. But this recipe is totally worth opening all the windows, turning on all the fans and the air conditioning. The key with skirt steak is to cook is fast and hot, otherwise it will get super tough. And a grill pan or outside grill (preferable) will do the trick.

Chop the herbs:

Marinate the steak:


Make the dressing:

Grill the treviso:

Sear the steak:

All done:

Seared Skirt Steak with Grilled Treviso: 

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Serves: 2


  •  8 oz skirt steak
  • 2 heads treviso
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon


  • 2  TBSP fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 TBSP fresh thyme
  • 1 TBSP fresh oregano
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  •  1 clove garlic
  •  1 TBSP EVOO
  • Salt and Pepper


  •  1/3 cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  •  1 TBSP garlic powder
  •  1/4 cup fresh basil
  •  1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • -1 TBSP fresh thyme
  •  1 TBSP fresh oregano
  • -salt and pepper


Optional: 10 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half


1. For the marinade: Roughly chop the rosemary, parsley, thyme, oregano and basil leaves. Mince the garlic clove. Add steak into a resealable plastic bag. Add herbs and garlic. Add olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. “Smush” around until the steak is evenly coated in the mixture. Seal the bag and place it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to overnight.

2. Preheat grill pan to high heat (this is where you open a window and turn on fans if grilling indoors). Cut the treviso in half lengthwise, keeping the stem connection intact. Slice the halves into thirds, agatin keeping stem intact. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss together.

3. Add treviso to grill pan and cook until you get a good char, about 4 minutes per side. Once done, remove it from the grill, squeeze lemon on it and set aside on a platter. Place steak on the high heat grill pan (should be smoking) and cook until medium rare, 3 minutes per side. Once done, remove steak from the grill plan to a platter and let steak rest for about 5-10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, make the treviso sauce. In a small bowl, add Greek yogurt, garlic powder, salt, pepper and remaining chopped herbs. Mix together.

5. Plate: Slice steak against the grain and plate it. Then top it with some treviso with sauce. Optional is to garnish steak with extra herbs and cherry tomatoes.
