The reason we have gathered here today

Into another smoldering skillet …

toss marinated skirt steak.

while meat cooks prepare plates with:

flour tortillas (For moist tortillas microwave in wet paper towel for 15 to 30 seconds.)

I would have rather it came out more caramelized. my skillet wasn’t hot enough. Make it hot so hot things scream when they touch it.

Regardless the finished product was thoroughly enjoyed.
