Ah, it was a beautiful Thursday afternoon, perfect for grilling, and much warmer than I expected.
Still craving red meat from my flop called steak nachos, I decided to make steak fajitas. This dish wouldn’t need any melted cheese to mess me up.
I went to the store and bought two pounds of skirt steak; a red and yellow pepper, and some chicken to grill tomorrow. I already had an onion and tortillas at home.
First, I marinated the steak in some apple vinegar, cilantro and garlic. Then I chopped my onion and peppers. I wrapped them in foil with a little oil, salt and cilantro. I also threw in some of the fat from the steak to add some extra flavor to veggies.
The grill started right away, even with the non match ready coals. I don’t why they make any other kind.
Right away I put the veggies, wrapped in foil, on the grill. The steak wouldn’t take long to cook. I let them cook for about 10 mins with the lid on before I added the steak.
The steak cooked for about 6 minutes on each side and came out medium rare to medium. When the steak was almost done I put the tortillas on and shut the lid. After a minute or two I brought everything inside.
I let the steak rest a few minutes and then sliced it up! Last, I took large amounts of meat, veggies and sour cream, loaded it on a tortilla and devoured it. This turned out much better than my last Tex-Mex project.
I ended up eating three of these bad boys and taking an hour nap right after.
