One of our refrigerators cut out on us this week.  Since we stock our beef by the half cow, I found myself with a freezer full of defrosting meat.  Luckily, it was the one that holds our stew beef and such (not the ribeyes or filet).  I set out to make a huge batch of stew and a big pot of chili.  By the time I was done with pot pie filling I was pooped and still had a package of skirt steak staring at me.  What to do?  Marinate it for tacos the next night!  Skirt steak isn't known for its tenderness but I figured an overnight bath in a marinade would soften it up and I was right.  I used what I had on hand:

1/4 cup of olive oil
Juice of three limes
Splash of tequila
Splash of the juice from a jar of pickled jalapenos
4 cloves of crushed garlic
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. of oregano
Salt, pepper, hot pepper flakes

The next evening we grilled the steaks, let them rest then sliced them against the grain.



I pan fried a half of a red pepper and a handful of jalapeno slices in a little bit of olive oil.



They were served with warm flour soft flour tacos, sliced avocado, fresh tomatoes and some of my homemade salsa.  There are scores of other things you could serve these with, like cheese, sour cream, lettuce, onion, guacamole, etc.  We (of course) have leftovers.  Beef.  It's what's for dinner.

That looks delish! I can guess what happened to the rest of the tequila after you used a "splash" for the marinade.  Roll Eyes

Love the recipe (will be trying) but I have to say, the gallery pic from the front page...did not look like skirt steaks.
