Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2006


  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chile (ribs and seeds removed for less heat, if desired), chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut to fit skillet
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for garnish (optional)


  1. In blender, combine lime juice, soy sauce, garlic, and jalapeno; puree until smooth. Transfer to a shallow dish or large resealable plastic bag. Toss with steak to coat. Let stand at least 30 minutes, and no more than 2 hours, to infuse with flavor.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high, until very hot. Cook steak, in two batches if necessary, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing thinly. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Cook's Notes

Fresh limes will last about 10 days in the refrigerator.
