One of my favorite cuts of beef is skirt steak, a long, flat piece of meat found on the cow's breast plate. Because it cooks quickly and has a lot of flavor—I only ever season it with salt and pepper—I turn to it often for weeknight cooking or when I'm in need of a quick main to serve to friends. Here, it pairs perfectly with a light herb salad with a whole grain mustard and honey dressing. Farideh Sadeghin, test kitchen director
