Skirt steak tortilla recipe

Every time I start the new year with new things to do and a couple of new year resolutions. Lose weight and barbecue more. These resolutions seem the opposite of each other, but I got it figured out.
I’ve got the perfect recipe to start the new year, where I use the grill to its full potential. This is a fantastic skirt steak tortilla that’s big enough to get you filled up without too many calories.

  • 1 piece skirt steak
  • 1 piece whole onion
  • 2 pieces bell peppers
  • 4 pieces flour tortillas

The salsa

  • 4 pieces whole tomatoes
  • 3 pieces spring onion
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 pieces jalapeno
  • 1 tbsp lime juice


  • Dice fine the tomatoes, spring onions, garlic and jalapeño peppers. Do this in a bowl with the parsley and the lime juice. Mix this up and set it aside.
  • Fire up the grill with a direct heat of about 150ºC/302°F. I placed a soapstone to char the vegetables without oil to save calories.
  • Grill the skirt steak over direct heat while flipping it to a core temperature of 54ºC/129°F. Season it with salt and pepper and let it rest.
  • Peel and slice the onion in rings and the bell peppers into strips. Char these on the soapstone. Do the same with the tortillas.
  • Slice the skirt steak in strips and put a handful in a tortilla. Top it with the salsa and serve it with some lettuce, red onion and lime wedges.
