    chia's Note:

    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!

      It's not very often we can get skirt steak, so i wanted a special recipe for it. This was special. Like Hey Jude, we used the cilantro (that's what we had) and it made a delicious sauce, which also made a delicious dressing for our salad and was pretty tasty with our potato wedges dipped in it too.

      This is SO good. I followed the directions exactly but used cilantro in place of the basil, per chia's mention of it (and I had a huge bunch of cilantro to use up). Also, I cooked on my outside grill, rather than inside. Supposed to serve 6? My husband and I pigged out on it and were left with an 8 inch strip of skirt steak, which I'll use in a salad. Thanks chia, this easy, delicious recipe is going into our favorite file!
