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.

Luckily, I read the previous review and reduced the water to 1 cup for the salsa verde. Turned out just right.I thought the meat was bland, but the other flavors filled in. That said, this is a pretty good recipe. My wife and I enjoyed it. The pickled onion, salsa verde, and cheese were very tasty and would work well in other dishes.
The meat got rave reviews and we loved the pickled onions. The salsa verde makes a lot and mine turned out soupy with 1.5 cups of water-- I might add 1 cup and see if you need more.
