Grilled fajitas were on the menu tonight...

I started off by marinating three skirt steaks




I used a mixture of pecan & mesquite for smoke flavor


On the grill they went...




Sliced up




Piled up on a tortilla with sauteed onions, bell peppers & jalapenos w/sour cream & cheese

Looks perfect! I like your choice of wood for the fajitas too. Cool One of my favorites just like you did them.

You got the skirt steak going for fajitas. You are a true Texan, my friend. They look good. Nothing like grilling fajitas over mesquite!

Just curious, what type of marinade did you use? I haven't found a good fajita marinade that I've been satisfied with yet.

Is a skirt steak the same as a flank steak? I saw this post and want to give it a try. Thanks

Thanks for all of the kind words!

kempshark - I cheated on the marinade and used a store bought seasoning in a package (like taco seasoning) where you just add water & oil. I would like to find a much better one myself.

Char Grilla - Well, Texas is so big that it really depends on what part of Texas you live in as to the availability of mesquite. I live in N. Texas where there are mesquite trees, just not a lot of them. This wood actually came from a deer lease in Southwest Texas where mesquite, cactus & rock rule the land. Very Happy If you head out to East Texas, you will find yourself in the piney woods. Texas really is a country all in its own! Wink I've actually have not had to calibrate my threm yet. It's right on track with all my others.

jeepdad - That was skirt steak I bought at Sam's Club.

morick - I bought the therm on clearance at Lowe's for about $7 I think. For the price, I am thrilled with it. It's not "instant" read, but is about "4 seconds" read. You can find them here at amazon at a good price as well... http://www.amazon.com/Taylor-Weekend-Warrior-Digital-Thermometer/dp/B001IV5VDG They have a waterproof one for a couple of bucks more. It's not a thermapen, but fits the bill for us poor folks! Laughing

As a marinade for skirt and chicken, I use:

cumin
fresh garlic
pepper
lime juice
cilantro
olive oil

I use salt sparingly in marinades.
