Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds beef Skirt Steak, cut into 4 to 6-inch pieces
  • 2 medium oranges, divided
  • 2 cups chopped tomatillos (4 to 5 small to medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • MARINADE:
  • Juice of 1 medium orange
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (from chipotle peppers)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Combine Marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steaks in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. Grate 1/2 teaspoon peel from 1 orange. Cut this orange and half of remaining orange into segments. Chop segments into 1/2-inch pieces. Combine orange peel and segments, tomatillos, onion, chipotle peppers, cumin and salt in medium bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut remaining 1/2 orange into wedges; reserve for garnish.
  3. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 7 to 12 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 8 to 12 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Carve steaks diagonally across the grain into thin slices; season with salt, as desired. Serve with tomatillo salsa. Garnish with reserved orange wedges. Yield: 4-6 servings.
