Since we havent really got any fish reports yet I have a food question. The wife and I love Fajitas. We have tried a bunch of recipes and can never get that really good taste similar to mexican restaruants. What are we missing, or what are we doing wrong. Mr. Green

Ok FF,

Get some good flank steak that has been tenderized by the butcher.

Rub it down real good with olive oil, then coat well with seasoned salt, garlic powder, pepper and squeze fresh lime juice all over....same coating goes on both sides....be careful with the salt as the meat is not thick and a little goes a long way....

Let the marinate for a few hours, then cook over grill on as high heat as you can manage and make sure to not overcook...will only take a few minutes per side.

Cut the meat perpendicular to the grain into strips and you are good to go....

Same thing works with chicken as well...

Texan

FF,

You need to make you a good cilantro based pico de gallo to go with them....diced onions, tomatoes, lime juice and put some chopped cilantro in there as well...this needs to be made a day ahead of time to let everything "mix" together real good....Mighty fine my man, mighty fine.....

Tex only thing you forgot was Galic and Onions. got to have those and a little powered cumman? might have spelled that wrong. Another thing you need to do is pie cut some onions and thin slice some green peppers and cook those up in a pan till tender, just at the end add a couple cloves of chopped garlic.

I have discovered Schillings fajita seasoning works great on steak and chicken, marinade as the Texan has described and sprinkle over your veggies coated with a touch of olive oil and put under broiler. Mmm!

Hey Texan, this is a little late in coming, but I wanted to thank you for that recipe for the fiajitas. We made it just like you said, except we used shirt steak. They were FANTASTIC! We will never eat them anyother way again. Thanks.

What's with the SORRY?? Grouch eats just like the rest of you and most of what he eats is real food, not some gourmet stuff.
Col. Ron asked the right question - What's a shirt steak? Button down or French Cuffs? Long sleeves or short?
