Fajita Results

Did pork Tenderloin and Chicken Fajitas for guests on Saturday. No pics of the chicken, which actually were the best. Cut pork tenderloin lengthwise and pounded to about 1/2". Both the pork and chicken were in individual marinades that differed slightly. Chicken was a lime based vinegarette and pork was herbs in oil and Negro Modello Mexican dark ale. Cooked on a Mequite lump fire.

Made up fresh salsa, guacamole and grilled veggies. Made a batch of beans in my new cast iron dutch oven and added a mess of Spanish rice.

Left over pork was great sauteed in a little butter and served with fried eggs for breakfast yesterday morning. I'm rebuilding the same taco for today's lunch as you see in the pic.

It's Monday in San Antonio.

  • The pics look great. I think pork is perfect for fajitas.

    Everything was great except I should have pulled them a tad sooner. Some got a little dry.

    Did you make your own tortillas?
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466
    No, Ma'am. But we did buy them fresh from one of the better Mexican restaurants in town. Did I mention that we have a couple of Mexican restaurants in San Antonio? :silly:

    It is Monday in Belton to, what a coincidence. Probably still Sat. in Cypress.
    Nice job on the fajitas.

    Those pics make me want do that same cook.
    I'm sure it was as tasty as it was colorful.

    Just wait until you're as old as I am and I'm sure it'll happen. :woohoo:

    Actually I just take a bunch of shots of each and hope one comes out. Picassa helps, too. :blush:

    That's cool. I had to start making them myself, because what we get here is very bland... Sort of "winter" tortillas, you know what I mean? ;)
