When most people think of low-carb diets, they picture a big, juicy steak.

As part of Good Morning America's "Cut the Carbs, Lose the Weight" series, Chef Todd English, of Olives in Charlestown, Mass., made a skirt steak with balsamic marinade.


  • 2 garlic cloves, roasted
  • 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, grated zest
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1.5 pounds skirt steak
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • Cooking Directions

    To make the marinade, mix the Dijon mustard with chopped cilantro, lemon zest, balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp. Olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper. Soak the steak in the marinade for one hour in covered container.

    Use a broiler and cook the steak, with garlic cloves, for 5 minutes on each side, with broiler set to high. Or, fry the steak in a heavy pan with 2 cloves of garlic.

    As an alternate, you can sear in a grill pan on top of stove over high heat and then place in a 450 F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, to desired doneness (130 degrees with instant read thermometer would equal medium rare) Use salt and pepper to season steak.
