Marinated Skirt Steak from Costco

Has anyone had this pre-marinated skirt steak from Costco before? Thoughts/tips on cooking, assuming hot and fast.  What's the flavor profile/recommended sides?

    @Legume pretty much nailed it.  I would add cojita cheese as the finish and I also like pickled onions.

    100% on wiping off the marinade.  Sometimes it can actually give a ham like flavor depending on the marinade if you do not wipe it off.  Took me about 3 times before I finally realized why I was getting an off flavor with my Carna Asada.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Some Eggs, some Weber stuff, the occasional Traeger, and various other things that make flames and hold coals.

    I haven't had that - what is it marinated with?

    My in-laws do arracheras (skirt) marinated with fresh lime, onion slices between each layer and salt.

    BTW - united33, is that NRT-->LAX reference?

    Call me insane, but I love skirt steak marinated in Mr. Yoshida's Teriyaki sauce, sliced with the grain. I'm lazy and usually broil it in the oven, as I don't think the egg adds enough to warrant the prep time. Hopefully I can still keep my posting privileges here.

    I think this belongs in the unpopular bbq opinions thread, then you can stay.

    Years ago we used to cook flank steak in the crock pot in something akin to yoshidas until it started to fall apart.  We would basically pull it into ropes that went with the grain and serve on steamed rice and our kids (young at the time) would absolutely destroy it.

    Yoshidas is amazing
