Skirt-Steak Fajitas with Homemade Salsa

Skirt-Steak is full of incredible flavor, but to be enjoyed, it has to be prepared and grilled properly.  Skirt-Steak contains a lot of marbling and connective tissue, which makes it flavorful, but tough. This Skirt-Steak recipe shows you how to create Fajitas using a marinade that helps to tenderize this cut of beef, and grill it for maximum taste and tenderness.

To Make the Steaks:

  1. Remove the steaks from the Ziploc bag and discard the marinade.  Allow them to come up to room temperature before grilling
  2. Prepare your grill.  If you’re using a gas/propane grill, allow it to heat to its highest temperature, usually about 600 degrees F.  If you’re using a charcoal grill, concentrate the coals in one location just large enough for the size of your skirt steaks
  3. Place the skirt steaks on the grill over direct heat for 2 – 3 minutes per side, or until well seared.  Turn over and grill on opposite side for another 2 – 3 minutes
