Marinated Skirt Steak with Red Potato and Caramelized Onion Flatbread

I've been slacking on the recipes here, haven't I? Well, I promise to bust something out this week, although what it will be is still hidden in the mists. But in the meantime, here is some steak and bread. The steak is a skirt steak that I just marinated in some POM/tangerine, garlic, crystallized ginger, honey and soy sauce. The flatbread is the recipe I've posted before only I used red potato, with the skins chopped up in there to add some earthy flavor, and some caramelized onion. I put some lettuce and red pepper on it, it didn't need a sauce since the steak had plenty of flavor and moisture. Skirt steak is like flank steak, only fattier.It was really, really good. I still have some of the dough for the bread in the fridge, I wonder how long it stays good for. Also, when I made the flatbread I brushed the butter onto the skillet instead of the bread. It browned the butter a bit, made the bread a little darker and gave it a bit of a crisp. It's good times, I'm definitely doing it that way from now on. So who else out there makes their own flatbread? How do you do it?

I can't find skirt steak here. I need to ask at the butcher store if they do that cut or if they use it for a different purpose.

Looks mighty tasty!

Beautiful sandwich! The flat bread looks incredible, Bob.

Happy New Year to you! Sorry I haven't been around as much lately - I'm kind of taking a bit of a blog break. Hopefully, I'll regain some of my energy soon. In the meantime, take care and all the best for 2010!

I always prefer skirt steak for any kind of grilling meat. It's full of flavor, and can take up just about any kind of marinate. Yours look delicious Bob!

I make chapatti flatbread, in a cast iron pan and brush melted butter on it after. It's all good!

This would be a perfect meal to serve up during the week. Love it.
