Directions See How It's Made
- Bring Skirt Steak out 30 minutes prior to going on the grill.
- Sprinkle Salt and Pepper on both sides.
- In a small bowl combine: A-1 Steak sauce, Chipotle Pepper, Chipotle Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, and Cumin. Set aside.
- Preheat gas grill to high heat. While Preheating make Salsa by combining all salsa ingredients. Place salsa to side, leaving at room temperature.
- Brush vegetable oil on each side of steak. Place steak down and cook for three minutes.
- Turn steak over and brush with sauce. Cook five additional minutes (less or more depending on desired doneness of steak).
- Baste the other side with sauce.
- Remove steak from grill, place on plate and cover with aluminum foil. Let rest for 5 minutes.
- While steak is resting, heat a griddle on high and warm corn tortillas on both sides.
- While tortillas are warming up, mix remaining basting sauce with sour cream and stir.
- Cut steak into small cubes. Separate meat into the eight tortillas, evenly distribute the crumbled Queso Fresco, place salsa on tacos and a drizzle with sauce/sour cream mixture.
- Serve immediately.
