Hanger or Skirt Steak with Warm Lentil Salad

Hanger steak as well as skirt steak are less expensive cuts of meat and are prized for their flavor.

INGREDIENTS

4 skirt steaks, about ½ pound each, trimmed of excess fat
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley

PREPARATION

1. Sprinkle the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper and cumin and brush with vegetable oil.

2. In a cast-iron skillet large enough to hold 2 steaks at a time brown the steaks over high heat for 3 minutes for medium-rare. Turn and continue cooking until thoroughly browned, about 3 minutes more. Remove to a warm platter. Repeat the procedure for the 2 remaining steaks.

3. Pour off the fat from the skillet and reduce the heat. Add the butter, garlic and parsley and cook briefly. Add any juices from the platter of steak and blend well. Pour the sauce over the steaks.

4. Serve immediately with Lentil Salad.
