Thought this was a great way to use skirt steak. The steaks have to marinate overnight (time not included in prep time). Recipe source: Bon Appetit (July 1986).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 4 ingredients (pepper - cayenne pepper) in a small cup and then rub over steaks. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  3. Grill steaks to desired degree of doneness (about 5 minutes per side).

The seasoning is perfect on the meat and the heat of the salsa compliments the meat well. We grilled some multi-colored peppers to go with the meat and served this with flour tortillas, Spanish Rice and Light Refried Black Beans.
