Yield: Makes 18 tacos
Often featured in fajitas, skirt steak is perfect for tacos, too. Because of the meat’s striations, it slices into bits that have the perfect amount of tenderness, chew, and caramelized nubbins. Tangy pickled onion and salsa verde are the perfect accompaniments.

Looking at a raw skirt steak, it’s easy to see the lines of fat within the striations of meat. Don’t try to remove it. The fat adds flavor and bastes the meat as it melts away during cooking.
