Directions

  1. Smoky and Fiery Dressing: Combine the vinegar, garlic, chiles, honey, salt, and pepper in a blender and blend until smooth. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the oil and blend until emulsified. Add the cilantro and pulse 2 times just to incorporate.
  2. Avocado-Oregano Relish: Combine all the ingredients for the relish in a medium bowl.
  3. Grilled Skirt Steak: Heat your grill to high. Brush the steak with the oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. Grill, turning once, for 6 to 8 minutes until slightly charred and cooked to medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Cut the meat against the grain into 1/2-inch thick slices. Drizzle each serving with dressing and top with 2 tablespoons of the avocado relish. Serve the remaining relish on the side if desired.

The chipotle sauce is amazing, and the lime in the avocado relish has just the right acidity to complement the smoky chipotles. If you can't find skirt steak try flap meat or even london broil. It's really all about the sauce and avocado.
