{skirt steak fajitas}

ingredients {in order of use}
*serves 6 fajitas
  • 1 pound skirt steak
  • 1 cup italian dressing
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 onion, {optional}
  • 1 green pepper, {optional}
  • additional ingredients: soft taco shells, sour cream, cheddar cheese, salsa, avocado, lettuce, tomato, etc.
1. slice your skirt steak into thin pieces against the grain or you'll have some tough sh*t. literally. toss into a gallon-sized ziploc & add italian dressing, cumin, salt, pepper & onion/green pepper {if you have on hand}. toss, mix & coat everything. place in fridge & allow to marinate at least 4 hours. {this is a great recipe to make before work or the night before}!

2. when ready to cook, coat a grill pan or skillet with cooking spray & bring to medium heat. add meat & vegetables & cook on each side {flipping once} for approx. 4 minutes. allow more time for vegetables to cook down.

3. when steak is cooked, remove from skillet & place on a plate. enjoy your fajita bar without the smell & unwarranted attention from the "tsssssssssssssssssss" restaurant fajitas bring you!
