Grilled skirt steak ~ Taco Tuesday ~

I forgot the shallots and garlic in the picture...but not the marinade. 

Because Sofia Mae heard someone on TV say Taco Tuesday and she said that sounded fun, that we should do that sometime.   Okie dokie. The pure happy enthusiasm at the simplest thing is so beautiful.  How is it not contagious?  Taco Tuesday it is.

Marinade for skirt steak ~

3 T. lime juice ***Note added after - less if you don't care for lime taste on your meat, 1-2 T.
3 T. olive oil
1 1/2 T. Worcestershire sauce
3 garlic cloves, rough chop
Shallot, sliced - very scant 1/4 c.
2 T. rough chop cilantro 
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
Salt and pepper - 1/2 tsp. each
1 tsp. chipotle in adobo puree

1 lb. skirt steak (we tend to use a 3/4 lb. package for the four of us)
  • Mix the marinade ingredients, pour into a freezer baggie.
  • Add skirt steak.  Let marinade in the fridge at least four hours, but not more than 8.
  • Grill as desired.  I like a little past medium.
  • Cut on the grain in thin strips.
  • Num, num.  :)  I hope.

Eskimo kisses ~


  1. I came up with Taco Tuesday on my own and here they are talking about it on TV! We usually have Taco Tuesday a couple times a month...only one thing could make it better - my awesome friend to share some tasty margaritas with! Miss you!

  2. You're the originator! I'll tell Sofia! :)

    I miss you, too. I love you.

    (At least two margaritas.)
