Has anyone used a Skirt Steak to make Fajitas? I am planning on using a Tequila, Lime, Cilantro and Garlic Marinade. [p]I could use some suggestions on cooking times and temps.[p]Happy Grilling,

    Do it hot, like searing a steak. Your choice of the high temp and time but I would guess that 700F with the 2.5/2.5/5 minute timing would work for a 1-inch thick steak.

    The steak is more like one-quarter inch think and looks similar to flank steak. I am concerned about overcooking it.[p]Possibly, if someone knows how to cook a flank steak, that would work as well.[p]Happy Grilling,

  • RhumAndJerk,
    As has been recommended, I'd sear each side, 600-700 degrees for 1-2 minutes, close dome and all vents and cook for 2 minutes each side. That should be about medium rare. If you want more done increase cooking times. This works for me.

    Grillin Bill,
    Cool. I have never cooked a skirt steak and I do not want to mess it up with People coming over.[p]Happy Cinco de Mayo,

    My sister-inlaw has an excellent recipe where the skirt steak is rolled into small steaks about the size of a 6oz filet. She rolls green chili and some other stuff up inside to keep it moist and add flavor. I'll get the recipe and post or email it to you.[p]A~E
