"Living in California, we often see skirt steak available. I found this recipe to be fairly authentic to how they grill it out here. You can use lemon juice, but definitely use the lime juice if you can. The onion is wonderful with this but tends to fall though the grill grates, so have an extra sweet onion sliced thick to grill as well. Allow 2 to 4 hours to marinade. (Time for marinading is included in the cooking time)"

"I got half a cup of juice (even more) from 3 limes, so those of you who are wondering if you have to buy 8 limes, don't fret. I loved the salsa. We'll use this one again."
"This was really good. I did make my marinade and put my meat in a bag and froze it till the day I was ready to use it. Also with Avocado Salsa I used canned fire roasted tomatoes instead of fresh. I served all this on a bed of romaine with shredded colby jack cheese and used home made tomato salsa for my dressing. What a great meal! I will definately be making this again."
"Very good! I made a couple of changes...used flour tortillas instead of corn, and left the onion out of the marinade. Also, I broiled on my stove-top grill pan. Also, added more cilantro...to me cilantro is a side dish! Thanks for posting Pam!"
"I like skirt steak and this is a very good way to prepare it. I marinated the steak for about 8 hours. I did cut back on the lime juice and didn't grill mine as it was just too cold. I used a hot grill pan and got good results. The salsa is a great complement to the steak. Thanks for sharing. "
"The thing I loved about this was that once you have it made and it's marinating,it only takes a few minutes before you have a yummy meal, I had mine for lunch after being out all morning and coming home starving this was perfect. The salsa was delicious, didn't change a thing. I used limes for my marinade and it was quite a strong flavour in the meat but we enjoyed it thoroughly will definetly be making again, thanks Pam-I -Am!!!"
"I am glad that I choose this for the Photo Swap. The marinade provides a delicious seasoning and tenderizes the meat. For the salsa, I used fresh from the garden tomatoes and the cilantro was perfect without being overpowering. I did take the liberty of adding some mixed color bell peppers to the onion and grilling the veggies on top of the grill in a grill skillet. Served this with corn tortillas, rice and refried beans for a delicious and filling meal."
