Tequila Fajita: Gourmet Eats

In the preparation below, a little goes a long way. SInce you will be cutting into thin strips and serving with tortilla and topping you will probably have plenty for 4.

A skirt steak is the diaphragm muscle and is used to make many Mexican dishes fajita being one of them,Tequila Fajita being one of our favorites. We make this dish many ways but basicall there is citrus, tequila and oil. You can fix it up any way you like, we certainly have over the years.

Citrusy Tequila Fajita Marinade

2.5 Lbs Skirt Steak
Zest and juice of an orange and a lime
3 cloved of garlic, minced
3 shots of Tequila
Fat pinch of thyme
Fat pinch of oregano
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Lay the skirt steak flat on your cutting board and trim off the silvery skin. You can leave as much fat as possible as it adds great flavor to the skirt steak when cooking. You can always trim the fat later, after it cooks. With a sharp knife, score the meat about one inch apart diagonally across the grain making a diamond pattern. You want to just cut into the surface of the meat and not cut through it. Do this on both sides.

Mix together the marinade ingredients. In a zip lock bag or sealable plastic container add the skirt steak and pour in the marinade. Massage or flip to make sure the marinade is getting on all of the skirt steak. Let sit for at least 1 hour, up to 4 hours refrigerated.

Broiling Skirt Steak

Skirt steak cooks fairly quickly and if you are only cooking skirt steak it is more convenient to broil it in your oven broiler. For those who do not know, the broiler is usually directly under your oven. Turn your oven to broil and allow to heat up. Place the shirt steak in a pan and place in the broiler. Broil for 7 minutes and flip it. Broil for another 7 minutes. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into slices across the grain.

Grilling Skirt Steak for frajita

Grill over an even bed of medium hot coals for about 7 minutes on each side for medium. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into slices across the grain.

Serving the Tequila marinated Fajita

Now that you have slices of perfectly cooked, tequila marinated, skirt steak you need to assemble it.
You will need:

  • Large flour tortilla
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Fresh or roasted red pepper and onion slices
  • sour cream
  • grated cheese (Queso Fresco or Queso Chihuahua but pepper jack is excellent)
  • salsa
  • guacamole is a good thing also

Toast tortilla and keep in a warm damp towel. Lay the tortilla flat on your plate. Add sliced skirt steak down the center leaving room at the ends for folding. Top withyour favorite ingredients. You are in for a treat! Serve with a beverage of your choosing.
