Grilled steak is great for soft shell tacos! The rich grilled skirt steak is a good compliment to an intense flavored salsa.
When cooking steak, always season your steak with salt before grilling. Sometimes I like to use a marinade.
I used a skirt steak for our tacos, it is so incredibly favorable and when cooked and sliced the right way, it’s one of the most tender cuts you’ll find. The recipe for Skirt steak tacos is simple and only takes about 20 minutes. I like to keep my tacos simple and fresh with fresh diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, corn, crumbled Mexican cheese and a hot salsa with a of squeezed lime.
My favorite marinade is the Kikkoman marinade mix for meat that is a dry powder and mixed with cold water. I decided to marinade this skirt steak using Kikomans.
On the grill, just flipped the steak, nice grill marks!
After cooking any steak, once the steak is done to your liking, please, please let it rest for a minimum of 5 minutes. If you do not, once you cut into it, you will loose all it’s juices. When cutting a skirt steak, be sure to slice across the grain in thin slices at an angle. For tacos I always slice as thin as possible.
Assemble tacos with your favorite toppings!! 🙂 These are great with a really cold beer or a nice glass of wine!
After every good meal, you gotta have a delicious dessert, how about some homemade vanilla ice cream?
