This recipe doesn't seem to include removing the membrane from the skirt steak. I'm wondering if that is why several comments say the meat was tough or chewy, if they didn't remove the membrane. Anyway, we had this with basil mayo and it was delicious!

My bad. Used the wrong meat cut. Although tasty, meat was chewy.

Would have been better to marinate the steak first.
