The Skirt steak is a bar of meat on the inside of a beef cavity. It has a rough texture and is firmly marbled with fat. The meat was mostly used as soup- and minced meat. Today, due to the highly improved manure methods and the quality of meat cattle, the meat is often used for steaks. The meat is very soft and has a beautiful, coarse structure, a very distinctive taste experience.
