- 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 lb. skirt steak
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 thin slice white sandwich bread, darkly toasted
- 2 Tbs. toasted sliced almonds
- 7 oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained (3/4 cup)
- 1 tsp. sherry vinegar
- 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 medium cloves garlic
- 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
- Prepare a medium-high grill fire.
- Season the steak on both sides with salt and pepper.
- Tear the bread into large pieces, put in a food processor, and process to fine crumbs. Add the almonds and process until coarsely ground. Add the roasted red peppers, vinegar, and pepper flakes and process until the mixture is fairly smooth, about 1 minute.
- Chop the garlic and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt. Using the flat side of a chef’s knife, mash the garlic to a paste.
- In a 10-inch skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic paste and paprika and cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant but not browned, 20 to 30 seconds. Add the pepper mixture and cook, stirring, until heated through and thickened slightly, about 2 minutes. Set aside at room temperature.
- Grill the steak, covered, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part reaches 130°F for medium rare or 140°F for medium, 4 to 8 minutes.
- Move the steak to a cutting board and let rest for 3 minutes.
- Cut each piece crosswise into 4- to 6-inch-long pieces and then, holding your knife at a slight angle, cut each piece across the grain into thin slices.
- Serve with the sauce.
