I've been getting skirt steaks from Blooms for a while and the other day I picked up about 5 packs. They're vacuum sealed and they are ALWAYS marked down. The two steaks here weighed 4lbs total and cost a whopping $5.04 each for a total of $10.08 for some of the best eating you can think of! I hope the people around here never figure out how good they are....kinda funny as we have a growing Latino community....
Marinated the skirts in a little Italian dressing for base (oil & vinegar) then added cumin, chili powder, garlic, onion, pepper, salt and oregano. Used the same mixture on the peppers and onions.
Time for the meat. Quick sear, 2 minutes per side over direct heat.
Great plan on Eyetalian dressing..thats what real Tex Mex folks use to make fajitas..had to be Wishbone brand of course. This was before the homo Chef in Dallas come up with a name for them back in the eighties. To make it right you need januine Mesquite from S. Texas..preferably Corpus to Kingsville. Technically what you got there is called Carne Asada. Fajitas are always served as thin strips. Dont make me come up there. Thanks. Wheres the beans? Forgetting the beans get the Chef lynched at a Good Catholic wedding cookout in Robistown Over There. Or at least stabbed or gut shot. What do you have against beans?
