Flat Iron Fajitas

edited May 2012 in EggHead Forum
My garden was beckoning to me to make fajitas since it had produced all the fixin's.

I used a flat iron steak I got from the freezer because I didn't have a flap steak or skirt steak.  The steak was very tender, and this may sound funny, but I think a cut of meat can be too good for it's use.  I want a fajita that I have to rip the meat away from the tortilla and chew it, not one that just melts in your mouth.  Next time, it's back to flap or skirt for me.

However, Pam didn't complain.

Finished off with frijoles refritos and chile con queso.  Pam also had guacamole, but I don't do avocados.  The salsa on the fajitas were also homegrown from tomatoes from the garden.  ¡ Muy bueno !

    Nice looming plate and harvest. We just got our tomatoes in.
    And I have to agree. Some things go require the right cut of meat. Like someone using fillet on steak sandwich.
    Tender, but missing the flavor.

    All to get cheaper brisket!

    Looks more like chile con show off. You're making the rest of us look bad. Also, I'm still laughing at the visual of you running out of the house over those peppers. =))
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Travis,

    Did you have to go through the CS gas chamber in basic?  That's child's play compared to cooking chili oil.  We need to let the Pentagon know about this.

    I agree about the chew, melt in your mouth fajita meat is odd. Kinda like putting a nice steak on a bun and eating it like a sandwich.
