ok, I have a question. I was sharing a recipe with someone from work that involve skirt steak. She keeps kosher and was wondering if skirt is something she'd be able to find at her kosher butcher. Is skirt steak kosher? (my apologies, I'm pretty naive on the topic).
I understand some beef cuts sometimes aren't kosher, and in reading through a few posts on this board, it sounds that is usually because of either the part of the cow it comes from or the inclusion of the sciatic nerve. But from one thread a few months back, it sounds like some kosher butchers are able to go through the process of removing that nerve and can therefore offer some cuts of meat not generally found in kosher butchers.
Anyhow, I'm curious on three things. First, can skirt steak be kosher? second, if it is, is it commonly found at kosher butchers? and third, if not, what would be a good replacement (something commonly found in kosher butchers)? If it helps, my friend lives in Riverdale in the Bronx.
Thanks so much for your help.
