Show Us your grilling recipes!

So...the problem of going to bed at 9 means you are wide awake at 2! No problem, just get an early start on SUYL! :)
Josh made this steak last weekend for our fajitas and it was probably one of the top five steaks I've ever had. It was so flavorful and juicy. Sooo good! It has a smoky southwestern kick, but it's not spicy at all. You could also use flank steak, but I think the skirt steak has more marbling (more fat) and that's another reason I prefer it, more flavor!

First, you make the marinade!
1/4 cup of vegetable oil (I used EVOO because I was out)
juice of one lime
*1 bunch of cilantro
*1 serrano or jalapeno pepper
*I put these two in the food processor together
1 1/2 Tbsp. of ancho chile powder

Whisk all together and then pour over your skirt steak and make sure all of the steak is covered.


We only marinate the steak for an hour since the lime juice in the marinade can start to "cook" the steak because of the acidity.
Okay so preheat your grill to medium high heat and toss the steaks on for three minutes per side for medium rare. The good thing about these steaks though is if you want more of a medium well you can just heat your grill higher on one side.

We made fajitas out of these and they were SOOOO good.

Hope you enjoy!!!!
