Be sure to slice the steak against the grain--it'll be a little tough and chewy otherwise.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place skirt steak on a rimmed baking sheet; rub olive oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper on both sides. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour.

Step 2

Preheat a charcoal grill to medium.

Step 3

Wrap onions in foil. When charcoal is covered with gray ash, nestle onions directly in the coals; grill 25 minutes or until charred outside and soft within. Cut onions into quarters; separate onion layers with a fork. Place on a platter. Drizzle with lime juice and remaining salt; keep warm.

Step 4

Add coals to fire; preheat to high.

Step 5

Place steak on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place steak on a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Cut steak against the grain into 1/4-inch strips.

Step 6

Place tortillas on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 30 seconds or until heated. Place about 1 1/2 ounces meat on each tortilla; top with about 2 tablespoons onion mixture.
