I’m always looking for new Taco Tuesday ideas. Honestly, I just love how you can take almost any combination of ingredients, wrap them up in a taco and they taste delicious! It’s all about the flavor and textures coming together in every delicious bite.
This recipe seasons a tender skirt steak with taco seasoning, then tops it off with a spicy slaw and adds Crispy Onions for crunch. Easy and delicious!
Skirt steak is one of my favorite cuts of beef. It’s juicy, flavorful and cooks quickly, making it easy to get dinner on the table fast. Really, it just requires a quick sear on the outside, so be sure to have your grill piping hot before grilling the steak. I think this steak is best served rare to medium rare, but of course cook it to your preferred doneness.
