Citrus-Rubbed Skirt Steak

Citrus-Rubbed Skirt Steak Recipe
Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
Flavorful skirt steak is a favorite cut in Mexican cuisine. Because of its oblong shape, it may be difficult to fit the entire steak in your grill pan. If so, simply cut it in half across the grain and cook both halves at the same time. You can always substitute flank steak, if you prefer.
