Skirt steak is the traditional steak for fajitas and is also delicious on its own or coated with a spice rub. Thinly slice it on the diagonal before serving.

  • Place half the steaks on a rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan. Broil, without turning, until medium-rare, 5 to 8 minutes, depending on thickness. Transfer to a large platter, and cover with aluminum foil; let rest 10 minutes. Meanwhile, broil remaining steaks; transfer to a large plate, let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate to use later for Steak Sandwich with Peppers.

  • Remove foil and divide steaks among four serving plates. Drizzle with any accumulated juices, and serve with Romaine-Heart Salad.

Delicious! So simple yet so flavorful. I have made this many times. They make wonderful fajitas w/grilled peppers and onions and put in tortillas. Very happy I came upon this recipe. The spice combination is just right.

This recipe was so delicious and easy. We substituted rib eye for the skirt steak. We made the salad that's featured with the steak and the dressing was marvelous. We added about 1/2 Tbsp. of finely chopped shallots to the dressing. The dressing tasted similar to the sauce on a Big Mac

This is one of my favorite recipes. The rub is so flavorful and the dressing for the romaine salad is very tasty. The next day sandwiches mentioned in the recipe are excellent, also.

Skirt steak is unavailable in Canada (?) so I substituted flank steak which worked well.
