    Serve by slicing the skirt steaks into thin slices, always cutting the steaks against the grain of the meat for maximum tenderness. Place the sliced steak on a platter and drizzle chimichurri sauce over the top.

    1 Tomato (sliced)
    1 small Bermuda Onion
    1 bunch Watercress (chopped coarsely)
    Warm the tortilla in an oven, skillet or on the grill before serving on a platter. The sliced skirt steak is perfect when rolled in soft flour tortillas and served with sliced tomato, onion and watercress.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Choose a skirt steak when you are looking for a cost efficient cut of meat with great marbling and flavor.
    2. Chimichurri is a traditional Argentinian condiment similar to a salsa verde. Use a dry bay leaf in the sauce, but don't forget to remove the center stem.
    3. Cut the steak across the grain for a tender piece of meat.
