Salt-and-Pepper Steak

What's inexpensive, versatile, and crazy tasty? Skirt steak. It also cooks in a flash, which make it tailor-made for grilling. The skirt is a funny-looking steak: It's long and thin, with a grain that runs crosswise. Slicing across-rather than with-the grain is the difference between a chewy bite and a tender one. Start at one corner, making slices at a 45-degree angle across the width of the steak-the thinner the better.
