Chipotle Skirt Steak

No, this is not a recipe for anything at Chipotle Mexican Grill, which happens to be one of my favorite places to eat lunch. When I first discovered Chipotle Mexican Grill I was hooked. We had a problem… the closest one was 15 miles away. So, being my proactive self, I wrote them a very nice email asking them if they plan to open a location in East Broward where we live. I actually received a response that one was in the works. So we waited patiently. Then lo and behold, a brand new building was constructed just down the street from our Photo Studio. Who should move in, but a CHIPOTLE MEXICAN GRILL! We went on opening day and I had my picture taken next to an enormous burrito… yeah, I’m a little embarrassed that I did that and admitted it to all of you.

FYI – A Chipotle is a smoke-dried jalapeno and I buy them canned in adobo sauce. It is really really good stuff, but can be hot as magma. So if you don’t like spicy food, just use a little of the chipotle, but if you like it hot, then use more!

Chipotle Skirt Steak Recipe

1 lb skirt steak
2 tbsp canned chipotle with adobo sauce, minced
1/2 lime, juiced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
black pepper

1. Place steak in ziploc bag. Combine the remaining ingredients and whisk to incorporate. Add to the bag with the steak. Seal and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

2. Preheat Grill until 500 degrees and grill the steaks, about 2-3 minutes per side for medium rare.

  • wow great pictures! the filling sounds really interesting.. I have lots of leftover egg whites that I've been wanting to use up...I'm definitely making them! thanks for the recipe : )
  • I did have this salad when we visited the Philippines! It was certainly delicious and very fulfilling. Although this dish is more Japanese in origin, that restaurant gave it its own twist. The Filipinos really have a good palate for excellent food! Anyway, thank you for the recipe. I will surely give this a try!
  • Absolutely mind-blowing. I tried doing spoons your spoons have a rounded bowl or a flat surface. Did many break if you were trying to push it in a little to make it have a little depth.
