DIRECTIONS

  • To Marinate:.
  • Remove the stems from all the dried chilis, then shake out and discard the seeds. Place the chilis in a small saucepan with water just to cover. Bring to a boil, remove from the heat and let stand for 20 minutes to soften. Drain.
  • In a small, dry frying pan over medium heat, toast the cumin seeds until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. In a blender, combine the softened chilis, cumin seeds, garlic, jalapeno chili and red wine vinegar. Puree until thick and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the olive oil and salt and blend again until well mixed.
  • Place the skirt steak in a shallow non-aluminum dish and pour the marinade over it. Let marinade at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a broiler.
  • To prepare the Relish:.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the onion, Serrano chili, cilantro, salt, lime juice and olive oil. Set aside until you are ready to serve.
  • When the fir is hot or the broiler is ready, place the steak on the grill rack about 3 inches from the coals, or place in a broiler pan at the same distance from the heat source. Grill or broil, turning once, until seared on the outside but still pink in the center, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  • To serve:.
  • Slice the steak across the grain and on the diagonal. Arrange the slices on a platter and serve with the relish on the side.
