Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I have a fajita recipe that is my absolute favorite and have made time and time again but tonight we tried out Dizzy Pig's somewhat new Fajita-ish rub on a skirt steak.

First we made homemade tortillas, a first for us.  I see why you guys take the time to make these, they are very good and not as difficult as I thought.

Set up my Egg for direct heat at 500f.  Rubbed the steaks down with a little lime juice and then seasoned one with Dizzy Pig and the other with Badia brand fajita seasoning.   I tossed some sliced bell peppers and onion with lime juice, oil, and fajita seasoning.  I grilled the steaks 4 minutes per side and cooked the veggies at the same time.

Veggies finished at about 6 minutes.  I you like them charred they would finish at the same time as the steaks.

With skirt steaks, the grain runs side to side instead of lengthwise.  So to cut against the grain for tenderness, cut into 3-4 inch pieces lengthwise, turn each piece a quarter turn and slice.  (I know most everyone knows that but recently saw someone slice it lengthwise...CHEWY!)

Served them with Mexican rice and refried beans.  Not too shabby at all.

Not being a Dizzy Pig homer but all 5 of us liked the steak seasoned with Fajita-ish better than the Badia one, but they were both good.

Now I have to get ready to cook some sriracha wings for the FSU/NC State game.  Hope you all are having a great weekend!
