Grilled Onion & Skirt Steak Tacos Servings: 8 / Total Time: 20 mins


• 2 beef skirt or flank steaks (1 pound each)

• 1 bottle (12 ounces) beer

• 1/4 cup lime juice

• 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

• 8 spring onions

• 1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided

• 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided

• Corn tortillas, minced fresh cilantro and lime wedges


• Pound beef with a meat mallet to tenderize. In a large bowl, mix beer, lime juice and 2 tablespoons oil until blended. Add beef to marinade; turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 30 minutes.

• Meanwhile, cut partially through onions, leaving tops intact. Drizzle with remaining oil; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

• Drain beef, discarding marinade; sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper. On a greased grill rack, grill steaks and onions, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°) and onions are crisp-tender, 2-4 minutes on each side. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve with tortillas, onions, cilantro and lime wedges.
