This recipe that Dan came up with was a special one. He originally cooked this recipe with NASCAR driver Spencer Boyd and TikTok food influencer Fireman1231. Together they made this Dantastic chimichurri skirt steak tacos meal. Just know that this recipe is meant for a large group of people because it yields a lot of meat.

The Chimichurri Skirt Steak Marinade

The key to this recipe is the marinade. This is the basis of this recipe and the key to making these steak tacos pop. For the marinade, it's okay if it seems a bit watery. You will want it to be that way in order to really soak into the meat. Dan’s little special ingredient to this marinade and to the sauce is using anchovies. They add a little additional salty flavor and they actually blend very well with everything else.

Whenever you go to make the actual sauce, make sure to cut down on the number of limes you use to thicken the sauce.

The Pickled Onions

Another great thing about this chimichurri skirt steak tacos recipe is the pickled onions. In this recipe and in the video Dan made, he actually boiled the water-vinegar mixture. This was in an effort to speed up the pickling process. If you prepare a little more before you can start the pickling process a day prior and there is no boiling necessary.
