Bloody Mary Skirt Steak #SundaySupper

Happy Labor Day Weekend! It’s time to fire up the grill and invite your friends over for a potluck!  Don’t know what to bring?  No problem! That’s where the #SundaySupper crew comes in. This week, we have lots of amazing ideas for any party. From appetizers, to drinks, to sides, to the main course, and yes– even dessert, we’ve got you covered.

I decided to make my famous Bloody Mary Skirt Steak. If you’re not able to find a skirt steak, you can easily use a flank steak as well.  I like this recipe because it’s simple, and it takes a cheaper cut of meat and turns it into something special.  The marinade adds a subtle flavor to the meat.  It’s mild enough that even kids will like this!


  • 1 skirt steak (or flank steak)
  • 2 cups of vegetable juice like V8
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp horseradish
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 15 shakes of Tabasco sauce
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • Black pepper to taste


In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the steak. Mix well.  Place the steak in a 1 gallon plastic freezer bag.  Pour the mixture over the steak.  Seal the bag and make sure the steak is coated in the liquid.  Place in the refrigerator so that the steak is flat and soaking in the mixture on all sides.  Marinate for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight.  Every few hours, turn the bag.

When time to grill, discard the marinade and pat the steak dry with a paper towel.  Place on a very hot grill, and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. (if using a flank steak, it will need longer to cook– likely 5-6 minutes per side)


After grilling, let the meat rest for a few minutes.  When serving cut into portions by slicing against the grain of the meat. Serve with your favorite sides. I suggest a nice salad and maybe even corn on the cob!
