Ingredients
  • 6 red chilies, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into large chunks
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion,
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds skirt steak, cleaned and trimmed
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the chilies and red pepper on a baking sheet, toss with 2 teaspoons of the canola oil and roast for 20 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, finely chop.

Heat the remaining teaspoon of canola oil in a saute pan over medium heat, add the onion and garlic and sweat until softened, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook until lightened in color, 1 to 2 minutes.

Combine the pepper mixture with the vinegar, lime juice, salt, paprika, and red pepper flakes in a food processor and pulse until combined. While the food processor is running, stream in the olive oil slowly to achieve a smooth puree, similar in to texture to ketchup. Set aside 1/3 of the sauce for serving.

Place the steak and the remaining 2/3 of the sauce in a large re-sealable plastic bag; toss to coat and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade, pat dry with paper towels, and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let the steak rest for 10 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain. Serve with the reserved sauce on the side.
