Important Notes:
- Quick and Hot: Inside skirt cooks well with high-heat methods for a beautiful sear without overcooking its thin nature.
- Slight Chew: Inside skirt benefits from being cooked to medium-rare to medium for optimal tenderness and still offers a satisfying chew.

1. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over high heat.
2. Sear the skirt steak for 1-2 minutes per side, or until a good crust develops.
3. Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 1-2 minutes per side, depending on thickness.

1. Preheat the grill to high heat.
2. Grill skirt steak for 1-2 minutes per side for a nice sear.
3. Continue to cook to desired doneness over medium heat if needed.

1. Cut skirt steak into thin strips against the grain.
2. Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat.
3. Stir-fry the strips in batches for 1-2 minutes, until cooked through but still tender.

- Doneness is Key: Because inside skirt is thinner, aim for medium-rare (54-57°C /130-135°F) to medium ( 60-63°C/140-145°F) using a meat thermometer.
- Slice Against the Grain: This is crucial for skirt steak to maximize tenderness. Cut thin slices across the grain.
- Marinade Option: Inside skirt takes well to flavorful marinades (30 minutes to a few hours).

Rare (52-55°C / 125-130°F): Soft texture, very red center. May be slightly chewy for some, but delivers strong beefy flavor.

Medium-Rare (57-60°C / 135-140°F): Recommended for inside skirt. Balances tenderness with a flavorful, juicy center. Bright pink and warm throughout.

Medium (63-65°C / 145-150°F): Firmer texture, light pink center. Still enjoyable, but some tenderness may be lost.

Medium-Well (68-70°C / 155-160°F): Pinkish-gray center. Noticeably firm, for those who prefer a fully cooked steak.

Well-Done (Above 71°C / 160°F): Not generally recommended for inside skirt, as it can become tough and dry.
