    Can this be broiled instead?

      In Israel, what is a skirt steak?

      • I would also like to know what a skirt steak is. I’ve never heard of the term before.

        • It is a tender cut that is usually pretty salty, kind of like a hanger steak, but I don’t know the details of where it comes from.

      • I don’t think they offer this exact cut in Israel, but any steak that is good for grilling and slicing on a salad will work.

      • I found out this info on Skirt Steak for you, but you really should just use any steak that is good for on top of salad. Skirt steak is either called “sarefet” (diaphragm) or “michseh lev.” it’s a specialty item, so it’s not readily available, but a good butcher may be able to source or cut it for you. It is not one of the numbered cuts.
