When it’s time to cook a steak at home, Skirt steak is pretty much always one of my favorite cuts.  It’s a fairly lean cut, that has a ton of natural flavor and is great on both the grill and the stove top.  Generally skirt steak has a bit more flavor, than the more expensive cuts like filet mignon, New York Strip, and ribeye, but is still tender enough to appeal to just about everyone.

How to Peel a Shallot

Shallots are an under used cousin of the onion; and I love them.  First, they are smaller than onions, and so there tends to be less waste if your cooking for one or two people.  They also have a flavor that is bit more mild and sweet than the average onion…with just a hint of garlic.  They are especially great with sauces.  But very much like the onion, they can be a bit of a pain to peel.  Here’s a couple tips to help you out.
