For the Marinated Skirt Steak:
  • 1 pound skirt steak

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Honey Mustard Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the BLT:
  • 2 brioche buns (or buns of your preference), toasted

  • 4 slices gourmet lettuce

  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced

  • 4 slices of your favorite cheese (e.g., cheddar, Swiss)

  • 4 slices bacon, cooked until crispy


Step 1: Marinate the Skirt Steak

In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, minced garlic, black pepper, and salt. Place the skirt steak in a large resealable bag and pour the marinade over it. Seal the bag and ensure the steak is well-coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.

Step 2: Prepare the Honey Mustard Sauce

Combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, honey, and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and set aside.

Step 3: Cook the Marinated Skirt Steak

Remove the steak from the marinade and let any excess drip off. Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until desired doneness is achieved. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain.

Step 4: Assemble the Sandwich

Spread a generous amount of honey mustard sauce on the bottom half of each toasted brioche bun. Layer on the gourmet lettuce, tomato slices, cheese, crispy bacon, and slices of marinated skirt steak. Top with the other half of the bun.

Step 5: Serve

Serve the Marinated Skirt Steak and Cheese BLT immediately, accompanied by extra honey mustard sauce on the side for dipping.

Chef's Notes:

  • Marinating Time: For the most flavorful and tender steak, allow it to marinate overnight. This will ensure the meat absorbs all the smoky BBQ flavors.

  • Cooking the Steak: Ensure your grill pan or skillet is hot before adding the steak to achieve a good sear and lock in the juices.

  • Cheese Selection: Feel free to experiment with different types of cheese to find your perfect match. Smoked gouda or provolone can also add a delicious depth of flavor.

  • Serving Suggestion: Pair this gourmet BLT with a side of sweet potato fries or a fresh salad for a complete meal.


This Marinated Skirt Steak and Cheese BLT recipe combines the best of both worlds: the hearty, satisfying flavors of a steak meal and the light, refreshing crunch of a classic BLT. With the addition of the homemade honey mustard sauce, every bite is a symphony of tastes and textures that are sure to delight your taste buds. Enjoy the process of creating this culinary masterpiece and the pleasure of savoring it, bite by delicious bite.
