Grilled Skirt Steak and Onion With Yellow Rice and Black Beans

Grilled Skirt Steak and Onion With Yellow Rice and Black Beans

Nothing beats the taste of a grilled skirt steak. In this recipe we combine a Brazilian churrasco influence along with a Mexican jalapeño steak influence to create an unforgettable skirt steak. And to complete the meal, we are cooking up a delicious grilled onion along with yellow rice and black beans.


  • 1.25 pounds or more of skirt steak
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 can seasoned black beans or black bean soup
  • 1 small package of yellow rice
  • 1 teaspoon everglades seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground jalapeño
  • 1 teaspoon BBQ salt
  • 1 teaspoon lawry’s seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter

First, season the skirt steak with the coarse BBQ salt by spreading it around the steak and lightly patting it down into the meat. Do not push too hard, you want some of the salt to fall off during the cooking process. Next, generously season the steak with the ground jalapeño. We say generously, but you may want to dial it back if heat is not your thing. Finally season the steak with everglades seasoning.

Next, peel a white onion and slice into 4 thick slices. Break up the rings of the onion and place this on a sheet of foil large enough to wrap and contain the onions. Next season the onion slices with Lawry’s seasoned salt. Next cut 2 tablespoons of butter into small pieces and add to the onions. Wrap the onions up in the foil by creating a ball of onion in foil. If needed, add a 2nd piece of foil to wrap the onions.

Preheat your grill on low heat and after 5 minutes, place the onions on the grill. Allow the onions to cook for 10 minutes before adding the steak. Next, empty the can of black beans into a small pot and heat on the stove top on medium low for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, reduce the heat to low.

Next, start the yellow rice on the stovetop following the directions on the package. Usually this would be to bring 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon olive oil to a boil, then add the contents of rice packet. Stir the rice, and after 1 minute, reduce the heat on the rice to low. Once the rice and beans are cooking, it’s time to get back to the steak.

Allow the onions to cook for 10 minutes, then add the steak to the grill. Place it on the direct heat on low. Allow to cook 5 to 7 minutes, then flip the steak once. While waiting on the steak, check up on your rice and beans stirring them up. Allow the steak to cook another 5 -7 minutes and then steaks will be done!

Remove the steaks and onions from the grill. Use caution when opening the onion foil packet, it will be hot and it can burn you! When the rice is finished cooking (usually 25 minutes) spoon out half of the rice onto a place and cover with half of the black beans. Add the steak and onions to the plate. Eat and enjoy!!

Jalapeno Garlic London Broil

In the mood for something different?  Try our jalapeño garlic London Broil recipe and satisfy your steak cravings!


  • 1 London Broil (2 pounds)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

First, cut open the jalapeño peppers by slicing them in half lengthwise.  Remove the seeds and slice the peppers into 1/8 inch pieces.

Next, peel one clove of garlic and slice the clove, do not mince.  Cut 1/2 inch length and depth slices into the London Broil and stuff the pepper into slices. Alternate by stuffing garlic into the slices.  Do this for both sides of the meat until you use all or most of the pepper and garlic.

Place the London Broil into a 1 gallon ziploc bag. Add the juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon.  Add 1 tablespoon of salt on one side of the steak, and the other tablespoon to the other side.  Hand pick the leaves from the cilantro and add to both sides of the steak. Add 1/4 cup olive oil and seal the ziploc bag. Manipulate the contents of the bag for at least 1 minute to push evenly the salt and other contents across the surface of the meat.  Place the meat in the refridgerator for 6 hours.

After allowing the meat to marinate, place the London Broil on the countertop for about 10 minutes to warm up.  At the same time, preheat your grill to a medium low setting.  When ready, cook the London Broil as you would cook any steak.  Give this about 7 minutes per side, flipping at least once for a nice grill on both sides.  Cook to your preferred doneness of steak.
