About the Recipe


  • 2 pounds skirt steak

  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 4 tablespoons tequila

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 large white onion, sliced


  1. Combine the steak, garlic, 1/3 cup oil, lime juice, tequila, cumin, and salt in a zip-top plastic bag.

  2. Seal the bag and turn to coat the steak in the marinade. Place in the refrigerator and let marinate for 2 hours.

  3. Drain the marinade from the meat.

  4. Place the steak on a preheated grill or in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, turning once, for 3-5 minutes per side.

  5. When the steak is cooked, remove it to a cutting board and let it rest for 5 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender.

  7. Slice the steak across the grain into strips.

  8. Serve the steak with the cooked peppers and onions, tortillas, and any desired toppings.
