Keys to Success

  • Skirt steak is AMAZING but it’s best served at medium rare... medium MAX! Otherwise it becomes chewy.
  • Hot, hot, hot!!! You want to quick cook this bad boy. So get that pan SCREECHING hot before putting the meat in to get a great seat.
  • I LOVE to give this cut a kiss of char from the grill or better yet my AWESOME torch!!! Adds to the overall flavour!!!
  • Get your favourite hot sauce and sprinkle it on... I LOVE our Local Pueblo Chilli Hot Sauces... that Black garlic is ����
  • Top them how you like! Don’t like avocado? No problem don’t put any on... HATE cilantro??? Skip it... Top these however you like it!!!
