Let’s make Fajita’s


Well I had planned to make my hubby's favorite fajitas but I didn’t realize that I needed pineapple juice for the marinade. Well, I am not nice enough to go to the store for one item as we don’t live near enough to walk to a market and I hate to waste gas so I turned to my best friend recipezarr.com and found a recipe using ingredients I had on hand.

Ingredients


1 clove garlic (minced or grated)

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

2 tablespoons oil (any type works,I used regular corn oil)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/3 cup A-1 Steak Sauce (this was a odd thing to add i thought but yummm so good)

Directions

Combine all ingredients, mixing well.

Marinade 1 1/2lbs Beef skirt steak for at least 2 hours.

Cook as desired on outside grill, stovetop sauté pan, or you can even cook them on the George Foreman grill.

I cooked them on the grill for 7 min on one side and 3 min after turning over once. I found the coolest website to help a novice grill it is http://www.charcoalbob.com/ you tell it what you are making and it will tell you how to do it! I am excited about this as I am sadly, not a great griller.

OHHHH baby and a good time was had by all!!!

By the way to make a really yummy soft grilled onion I put 1 red pepper cut in strips and one onion sliced and then threw in ½ Hatch pepper put in a tin foil envelope with 2 ice cubes and stick it on the grill the same time as the meat and they should be soft and smoky done the same time as the meat.

I love how the picture looks a little fuzzy on the top as it is the steam. I have sour cream and cheese also on the plate. I also made some guacamole but this is my hubby’s plate and he hates quac so it isn’t on there.

I will be sharing my homemade tortillas tomorrow so come back as they are amazing compared to store bought.

Thanks for coming by.

Strangely enough, soaking everything in Worcestershire Sauce and garlic tastes really good, too. Easy as pie.
