Really a unique recipe which we enjoyed!!! I too, made this using flank steak as my store didn't have skirt steak. For the seasoning I used Emeril's Essence and followed the recipe as written. Served it with baked potato, recipe#502798 and garlic bread for a delicious meal!!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.
