I'm leaning toward soy/lime/beer/garlic-onion, what do you guys (who still do skirts steak) use?

if you're doing Fajitas then I would marinate it in Allegro for a couple hours :chef: I prefer the Allegro Hot and Spicy or what they used to call Creole Marinade

I use a recipe that I got from Lupe's years ago.

Lupe Tortilla's Fajitas

• 2 lb. skirt steak
• 3 garlic cloves, peeled and mashed
• ⅓ cup peanut oil, plus
• 2 tablespoons peanut oil
• 4 tablespoons tequila
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
• 1 large white onion, sliced into thin crescents (half rings)
• 3 green bell peppers or assorted color bell peppers, cut into strips
• 1 teaspoon ground cumin


• Cut the steak into pieces that will fit on your grill, or into your iron skillet if necessary.
• Place the pieces of meat into a non-reactive bowl.
• Mix the garlic, lime juice, cumin, tequila, salt, and ⅓ cup vegetable oil.
• Pour over the meat and marinade for at least 2 hours. Overnight is best.
• Remove the meat from the marinade and grill over hot coals or in an iron skillet over med-high heat.
• Do not allow meat to dry by overcooking.
• Heat the remaining 2 Tbs. vegetable oil and sauté peppers and onions over med-high heat until they are crisp/tender.
• Cut the grilled meat into strips and serve with pepper and onion mixture.
• Serve with warm flour or corn tortillas.
• Can also serve with optional sides: sour cream, avocados, guacamole, salsa, cheese, e, etc.

your marinate is a good mix of acid and flavors
it should be excellent
and the beer is a major +

We use a simple marinade of Italian dressing, any type pf picante sauce and beer.
let the meat marinate for a least 4 hours remove pat dry and use your favorite rub.

Works well and have had no complaints.

I like to let the meat soak some up while I soak some up from the bottle. :drunk:
