DIRECTIONS

  • Place all of the marinade ingredients, except for the steak, into a food processor and buzz them up. Then pour the mixture over the steak in a non-reactive container and marinade for about 15 minutes. Any longer and the acid from the lime juice will cook your steak for you!
  • Meanwhile prepare the sauce by buzzing the fire roasted tomatoes, jalepeno, garlic, vinegar, sugar, cilantro and salt & pepper in your food processor until you have a fine consistency.
  • Place this mixture in a pot over medium heat and cook for about 20 minutes, stiring constantly to make sure the tomatoes don't burn.
  • Grill the steak over high heat to your desired doneness (skirt steak is exceedingly thin so 2 minutes a side on my gas grill was about medium rare). It all depends on your heat, so since you're the cook, you decide!
  • Top the steak with the sauce and serve.
  • Optionally, to do it exactly like they do at El Torito, go ahead and roll the jack cheese inside a corn tortilla (which has been softened in a little bit of hot oil for 5 seconds), which you have baked just until the cheese melts. Place this enchilada on top of the steak before you spoon on the sauce.
  • Please enjoy.
