Recipe by Chef John
"Two great drinks equals one fantastic marinade for skirt steak, the juiciest and most flavorful piece of meat you can put on a grill. It's smoky and subtly sweet. The flavors are balanced perfectly with the bitterness of the coffee in the grill marks. I really hope you'll give this a try."

Superb! Made this for supper tonight (as per recipe, except cooked to well-done as wife refuses anything less). Wife, who is not a fan of red meat cleared this off her plate in record time. "Would you like more?" "Yes, please!" Daughter, who follows her mother when it comes to aversion to any red meat speaks up, "I'd like some more, too, please." Whoa! I've never heard that before! Asking for more meat?! Served it with "cole slaw" recipe from this site (the one without mayo - wife doesn't like mayo either) french fries, desert was apple pie ala mode with caramel syrup. Big smile on wife's face + daughter happy = Dad glad. TY Chef John and allrecipes.
OK I'm going to be the first to rate this. I don't think I'm going out on a limb, either. Chef John makes fabulous food, and in the video, the meat looked perfect. Think I'll serve it with mashed potatoes or rice to take full advantage of that sauce.
