chili rubbed skirt steak

We haven't really had a whole lot of skirt steak dinners before, probably because this is not a very popular cut for butchers in Canada. There is one butcher I visit who sells it so I grabbed some to try this Chili Rubbed Skirt Steak from Great Food Fast. This rub has just the right sweetness and kick, we absolutely loved it. As it's cooking the house became so fragrant, similar to when fajitas come sizzling out of a restaurant kitchen. The steak is pretty versatile and made for great next day steak sandwiches - which was the plan until I accidentally forgot it on the counter overnight. Ah well, I don't feel like we got enough enjoyment out of this recipe so we'll be making it again very soon.
It is served with a side of Romaine Heart Salad with Creamy Dressing. The dressing has a strong chili flavour which wasn't exactly refreshing against the spicy meat.
