Beef Fajitas

Fajitas’ is a fairly recent culinary term in the Tex-Mex kitchen for little strips of skirt steak that have been seared dark brown in a very hot pan. Compare also to pork carnitas, which are a bit bigger, but are cooked in much the same way. 

In restaurants fajitas are often served at the table together with the peppers in a sizzling-hot (cast-iron) pan.

Walmart and Sam's Club both sell frozen beef fajitas that are already fully cooked. All that needs to be done to them is to warm them through, preferably briefly in a searing hot pan to avoid stewing them into shoe leather.


This is what you need for 2-3 servings:

  • 1 lb. skirt steak
  • 1 lb. Oriental stir-fry getable mix with sauce
