By: Andrea Alden

Cinco de Mayo didn’t go as planned this year and I’ve been left with a craving for some good grilled Mexican for dinner. I mean seriously, the sun’s out and the weather’s nice. What a perfect time to dine Al Fresco after spending some quality time with the barbecue! And what better recipe to grill than Marinated Skirt Steak Tacos. This Wagyu Skirt Steak was generously provided by Chophouse Steaks and is the perfect vessel for Mexican flavors like chili and cumin.

Ingredients

1½ lbs.

Canadian Wagyu Skirt Steak

1

lime, halved

1 tsp. 

chili powder

1 tsp.

garlic powder

1 tsp.

onion powder

1 tsp.

brown sugar

¼ tsp.

ground cumin

1 tsp.

salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste


To Serve

6 to 12

tortillas or taco shells

Fresh pico de gallo

Guacamole

Cilantro

Lime wedges

Directions
  1. In a small bowl, combine the chili, garlic, onion, sugar, cumin, salt, and season with freshly ground black pepper to taste. Sprinkle the Wagyu Skirt Steak with the seasoning mixture, ensuring full coverage on all sides. 
  2. Place the skirt steak into a non-reactive bowl or onto a plate. Squeeze one or both halves of the lime over the meat and allow it to rest, in the fridge, for 30 minutes up to 2 hours. 
  3. Once you are ready to cook, raise the cooking grid of your infrared SIZZLE ZONE™ to the upper position and preheat it to high for at least 5 minutes, preheat the main grill – preparing to use the indirect technique – to about 300°F. If you don’t have an infrared side burner sear station, preheat your main burners to high, about 500°F.
  4. Sear the marinated skirt steak for a couple of minutes per side, until sear marks form. Once both sides are beautiful and crisp, move the steaks to indirect heat to finish cooking. Grill using indirect heat until an internal temperature of 130°F.
  5. Rest the steaks off the heat for at least 10 minutes before slicing into thin strips. 
  6. Serve the slices in tortillas or shells, with your favorite toppings like fresh guacamole, pico de gallo, and cilantro. Don’t forget a squirt from a lime wedge for extra freshness. 

Easy Peasy, lime squeezy! This recipe is simple and delicious. A quick marination and a hot grill make this recipe one that is ready in minutes. Have your toppings out and ready to go before you grill and once the steaks are rested, everyone can quickly tuck in. Do you barbecue your taco fillings?
