Korean-Style Marinated Skirt Steak

I like to sear this one, but it's equally delicious grilled; just be sure to oil the grill first so the meat doesn't stick.

Coat a large skillet with the vegetable oil and set it over high heat until the oil is just barely smoking.

The steaks should be very rosy pink. Transfer them to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest for 3 minutes. Cut the steaks into 1/4-inch-thick slices and serve.
