Skirt Steak with Paprika Chive Butter

  1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked hot paprika
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  5. Salt
  6. 5 pounds skirt steaks
  7. Vegetable oil, for rubbing
  8. Freshly ground pepper
  1. Light a grill or heat a grill pan. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook over low heat, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the paprika and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and season with salt; keep warm.
  2. Rub the skirt steaks with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat until nicely charred and medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steaks across the grain. Spoon the paprika butter over the steak and serve right away.

Make Ahead The paprika butter can stand at room temperature for up to 4 hours; reheat the butter gently.
