Directions

  1. In a blender container, combine sherry cooking wine and remaining ingredients except meat. Cover and run on high until smooth.
  2. Trim steak of any visible fat. Place steak in a non-metallic baking dish or sealable plastic bag. Add marinade; turn meat to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight, turning meat one or more times while marinating.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Drain meat and discard marinade. Grill skirt steak about 6 minutes over direct heat with cover closed. Turn meat; grill with cover closed 2 minutes more or until cooked as desired. Flank steak will take longer to cook.
  4. Slice steak into thin strips across the grain. Serve with warm corn tortillas, if desired.

Footnotes

  • Cook time for skirt steak about 8 minutes; flank steak 12-14 minutes
  • Use unseasoned tomato puree or crushed tomatoes, not tomato sauce. Tomato sauce is usually seasoned and high in sodium.
  • Flank steak is thicker than skirt steak, so score flank steak with a sharp knife so meat absorbs more marinade. Flank steak also has less fat than skirt steak.

Did not like this. Soy sauce and vinegar marinades are better. Was ok on shrimp. Would not make again.

I come from a background of Mexican cuisine. Skirt steak is also know as arrachera. This is the best skirt steak I have ever eaten. I used tomato sauce because I didn't have crushed tomatoes and...

This one's a keeper. I made it as written with two (one unintended) exceptions. I used cider vinegar because I didn't have any sherry, and I added some oregano. It came out great and was very ea...

This was very good. I added a bit of Sazon and it made the flavors really come together. I also added cilantro and a jalapeno. It was really good. I used a skirt steak. I marinated it with my va...

Great, simple recipe, I used half the wine and eased up on a few other things. I like this bc you can adjust it to your family's tastes, thanks for sharing!

Mouth-gasm! Made as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Sliced it thin and made burritos. Ah-may-zing!

I used real sherry, two chipotles rather than three, chili powder instead of cumin, and three cloves garlic instead of four. Still the garlic seemed to overpower all other ingredients. High heat...
