I adapted this recipe from gourmet magazine. The original calls for cilantro, so feel free to use that instead. I am not a big meat eater, but i do love skirt steak!

Very good! I used basil and the only change I made was i/s/o cumin, salt and pepper on the steak - I used garlic powder, salt and white pepper. Thanks!
