Authentic mexican fajitas

 Authentic mexican fajitas recipe in the mexican category

 Recipe ingredients:

  • 2 pounds beef skirt steak
  • 1/2 onion, halved, slice thin
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons powdered red chiles
  • 3 jalapenos, pickled, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno pickling liquid
  • 1 tablespoon corn oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)

 Recipe method:

  • Place half of the onions in the bottom of a nonreactive dish.
  • Mix the cumin, powdered red chiles, chopped jalapenos and garlic together in a small bowl, then rub on all sides of the meat.
  • Put the skirt steak into the dish, on top of the onions.
  • Pour the lime juice and the jalapeno liquid over all areas to coat.
  • Sprinkle the remaining onions on top of the meat.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour, but preferably overnight, turning once.
  • Preheat the grill or broiler until hot.
  • Fajitas need to cook close to a very high heat source, in order to sear the outside but still leave the interior medium rare.
  • Mix together the oil and, if you are using them, the soy sauce and liquid smoke.
  • Brush or spoon the oil mixture onto the meat surfaces.
  • Grill or broil about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until the outside is brown and slightly charred and the inside is still slightly pink.
  • Remove the meat to a cutting board. Let sit 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Cut the meat into thin strips that can be easily rolled into tortillas.
  • Serve with warm, soft flour tortillas and fresh Pico de Gallo or Salsa Fresca.
