Steak Fajita's

Yes!  It is steak fajita time.  The Indian food kick was cool, but I have some time off, good weather is on the horizon and it's time to grill.

Here is what I use for my marinade:

1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup real soy sauce, I use kikoman
6 cloves garlic, crushed, minced.
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3 limes, juice em.
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dill

I use skirt steak, pick up a nice slab, doesn't matter what size, there is more than enough marinade here.  Now throw this baby in the marinade for about 4 hrs turning once and hour.  The best method is to just use a long glass cooking dish.

I've seen some recipes where people pan fry this meat.  For shame, you must grill this beutiful piece of meat.  I wouldn't recommend going over medium rare. 
Obviously throw some onion, red, and green pepper on with the steak.
The key here is really in the marinade and please for the love of god make sure you cut against the grain.  From here just assemble with some good local or homemade flour tortillas and enjoy!
