  2. Skirt Steak Braise:Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.Lay out the skirt steak, vertically, and season with salt and pepper. Add in the cooled stuffing to the bottom third of the steak and roll up, width-wise. Secure with butcher's twine.
  3. Heat a medium saute/fry pan over high heat and add in the extra virgin olive oil. Brown the stuffed skirt steak on all sides. Transfer steak to an 8 x 8-inch roasting pan. Add in the fennel, carrot, thyme, bay leaf, black peppercorns and garlic to the saute/fry pan and cook for 2 min. Deglaze with the red wine and beef broth. Scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon and transfer entire contents of the pan to the roasting pan. Cover with aluminum foil and place in preheated oven. Braise till meat is tender, about 11/2 hrs.
  4. Assembly:Remove skirt steak from roasting pan and place on cutting board. Cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 min. To make the sauce, strain the pan juices from the roasting pan into a small saucepan. Throw away the solids. Add in the beef broth and red wine to the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Whisk in the grainy mustard and butter.
  5. Slice the skirt steak into 1/2-inch slices. Spoon the sauce over the steak and serve immediately.

  7. Skirt steak is a flavourful cut from the flank but its a tough cut so it needs to be braised or possibly marinated. You can also use flank steak in this recipe instead of the skirt steak.
