    mikey & ev's Note:

    It is interesting how he puts the steaks right on the coals, hence the need for a blow dryer. It's a good episode to watch to see how creative he is. **If you don't do it directly on the hot coals, you need to cook it longer, like 2-3 minutes per side (and watch for flare ups). Really, you can make it any way you like! I sometimes use the broiler - heat up a cast iron skillet then place the steaks on it to broil - or just a quick pan fry with some olive oil. Oh, and DEFINITELY pay attention to the way to cut the steak, it makes all the difference! Makes a great marinade on whatever meat you choose :) Prep time includes a one hour marinating time.

      This was fantastic! The skirt steak tasted amazing, and marinade was extremely easy. Marinated for about 4 hours. Ended up cheating and just grilled on the gas grill, though. But was still pretty good regardless!

      My husband and 2 year old son LOVED this! My husband said that it reminds him of Korean BBQ. I marinate the flank steak whole for about 4 hours in the fridge and cooked it on a gas BBQ for about 5-6 minutes on each side. I wasn't brave enough to try the hair dryer charcoal technique. I didn't have quite enough lime juice so I substituted lemon juice and it worked well. I will definately make this again at my husband's request! Thanks for a super tasty and super easy recipe!

      WONDERFUL! I marinated flank steak strips for 3 hours in the fridge. Since I don't have a charcoal grill (only gas) and the deck still has snow, I heated a little oil in my wok to very high heat and seared the drained strips. YUM! Made for Hail to the Chefs-FN Challenge in Cooking Photos.
