This preparation of skirt steak is perfect for classic fajitas, but it is equally good on hoagie rolls or sliced and eaten with your fingers.
1/4 cup chili oil
2 tablespoons Sweet and Spicy All-Purpose Rub, or your favorite rub or chile powder
• Light a fire on half of the grill. If using gas, light half the burners.
• Grill steak over direct heat 1 minute to 90 seconds per side, depending on the thickness. Once each side is well-seared, move to unlighted side of grill and cover. Let roast 6 to 8 minutes.
• Let stand at least five minutes. Slice against the grain and serve on tortillas with your choice of salsa, guacamole, cheese and sour cream.
