Skirt...it is a butcher's term meaning to cut off thinner layers from around the edge or "skirt" of the piece of meat they are working with. The thinner pieces of meat are better for quick cooking such as with Fajitas, (as Lefties pointed out), and such other items that require flash cooking.

It has more to do with the cut and location, this cut is hard to find so I'm going to ask the butcher that cuts my stuff if they have what I'm looking for, the beef comes rolled up or is rolled up in the grocery store, perfect for the grill and the other two beef items I need are decent hamburger, we got that at one location only... and Beef legs for Bulalo no problem there either, just the steaks, they look so great, thought I was gonna loose some front teeth last time trying to finish the dang thing, ended being a favorite treat for my dog "Rocky".


Cheerio's are widely available here in the Philippines. I have purchased them at my local ShopWise and also at the S and R Membership Shopping and one other store in Quezon City that I forgot what it was called, (maybe Pure Gold).

Also, the beef that I buy at S and R is really nice quality and super tender! They have everything from T-Bones, to Filets, Sirloin, New York, Strip, Skirt, Flank, Roasts, Ribs...you name it, they have it there.

And US food products abound there also. Just about every major brand I could get in the US is available at S and R. Not that I personally eat all of these but here are a few items that either I purchased or saw at S and R: Jif Peanut Butter, Smucker's Jams, Jellies and Preserves, brand name cereals like Kellogg's and General Mills, Nestlé's Quik, Hersey's Chocolate syrup, canned goods from Green Giant and Del Monte, Kraft Mac and Cheese as well as other Kraft products, Miracle Whip, Natures Valley Salad Dressing, Hormel Thick Sliced Hickory Smoked Bacon, Campbell's Soups, McCormick Seasonings, Chicken of the Sea Tuna, Heinz Catsup, French's Mustard, Vlassic Pickle's, Stove Top Stuffing, Kellogg's Pop Tarts, right off the top of my head, I cannot really think of any US food item that I have not yet found here in the Philippines.

And the manager told me that if they do not have it, they will try to get it for you...

Thanks cvgtpc1 yea and that's a start, when I mention these US names they have a confused look and don't understand what I'm talking about but it's a start now I have the name and I'll try to find the Philippine name for Skirt steak.

Did some searching and there's other expats trying to figure out the Philippine name for this steak, here's a picture of what it looks like but it's gonna have more fat on the outside in certain area's it's perfect the for the grill and it's tender.

Market Manila - Where’s the Steak??? - Beef/Lamb, etc.

Found another spot or blog and the guy is calling it a "Flank Steak" and recommends that a person ask for "kalitiran".

@Cebu Citizen, man that sounds nice, stuffing? what... dang it and Valasic Pickles dang it again, some of that stuff is available at PureGold but when they're out they are out, for a year they sold Country Kitchen maple syrup, shoot not anymore, same with peanut butters they'll have ones that don't melt in the heat branded but after a time these brands are gone and it's back to Peter Pan (it sucks and don't hold up in the heat).
