Very nice flavored skirt steak!!! I think the addition of the garlic and onions really helped bring the flavor to this steak. The fresh orange slices and beer really helped to tenderize this steak. After marinating the steak, I took that sliced onions from the marinade and put them in a piece of heavy duty foil, that we added to the grill while cooking the steak, so good!!!
