Grill Skirt Steak, covered, over medium, ash-covered coals 7 to 12 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 8 to 12 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Carve Skirt Steak diagonally across the grain
  3. Combine Slaw ingredients in medium bowl; mix well. Set aside.
  4. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 10 to 11 minutes (over medium heat for preheated gas grill, times remain the same) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook.)
  5. Carve steak into thin slices. Spread 1 tablespoon reserved Date Spread on each lettuce leaf. Top evenly with steak slices and slaw. Sprinkle with mint, as desired. Roll up.
