serves 8

3 lb skirt steak
2 large yellow onions
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
16 flour or whole-wheat tortillas
2 cups grated cheese
3 cups guacamole

1 cup lime juice
1 Tbsp ground black pepper
2 Tbsp garlic, minced

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 scallions, chopped (green onions)
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp garlic, minced

Combine marinade ingredients in a large glass baking dish.

Peel the fatty membrane from both sides of the skirt Steak. This
requires a very sharp knife. Add meat to marinade and marinate for
at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Keep it in the refrigerator
if you marinate overnight.

Make the pico de gallo: combine all of the ingredients in a small
serving bowl.

Slice the yellow onions into 1/4-inch slices, and cut each slice
into a semicircle. Grill the meat until it is cooked slightly less
than the way you like it. Meanwhile, saute' the onions in the oil
until they are soft. Use a large frying pan that will have enough
room for the meat later.

After removing the meat from the grill, slice it into strips that
are cut across the grain. The strips should be 3-4 inches long and
1/4 inch thick. Add the strips to the onions in the pan, and fry
for another minute or two.

Place on the table the pan full of meat, the bowl of pico de gallo,
a basket with the tortillas, a bowl with the guacamole, and a bowl
with the grated cheese. You may wish to provide picante sauce in

Each person makes their own fajita by taking a tortilla, spooning
some of the meat onto it, then adding their choice of each of the
other ingredients in whatever combination they want.
