Party of One

Meat Cute

Can you even buy a piece this small? Answer: Yes—just ask the butchers at the meat counter to hook you up. If you’re getting a larger, prepackaged cut at the market, slice it into individual servings, then wrap them each tightly in plastic wrap before freezing. Skirt steak cooks quickly, melts in your mouth, and, paired with barley and hearty veggies, is stick-to-your-ribs satisfying.
