Suggested Pairing

Alexis George Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

recipe by Chef Dexter Marcus


  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

    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.

    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.


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