Skirt Steak Fajitas with Lime and Black Pepper Recipe — Photo by: Romulo Yanes Accompaniment Special equipment: Prepare grill for cooking. Thread onions onto skewers (or put in grill basket), then brush with 1/2 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. When fire is medium-hot (you can hold your hand 5 inches above rack for 3 to 4 seconds), grill onions, turning occasionally, until tender, 16 to 20 minutes.

TAVERN ON THE GREEN (MANHATTAN) Review — Every restaurant has its off nights, but in my experience they are standard at Tavern on the Green. One recent night, we waited 40 minutes after placing our order before any food arrived. The captain acted as if he were bestowing a favor each time he honored us with his presence, and the waiters hardly deigned to glance our way.

@eaglerockmama Sometimes called "light soy"; my bottle says "thin soy." Any Chinese market will have it. (Regular soy sauce will do.)
