Tequila Fajitas

Chris over at Nibble Me This is entering a contest that requires a video.  So he did a practice video for his last Fire Day Friday at OUR KraZy kitchen and he did an awesome job on it too.  I decided to make the recipe for his fast fajitas for father’s day and the guys loved it! Here is his video and recipe. I offer up my picture of our finished product too.

Fast Fajitas
3/4 lb Milanesa style sliced beef
1/2 to 1 green onion, seeded and sliced
1/2 to 1 onion, peeled and sliced

1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup beer or tequilla (I used the Tequila)
1 1/2 tsp season salt
1 1/2 tsp oregano, dried
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
Fajita Finishing Sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
2-3 Tbsp of the marinade (reserve before marinating the meat)

Marinate the beef for 30 minutes. If you like, you can also season your veggies with salt, garlic pepper, lime juice and oil.
Sear over a hot grill (400-450f) for about 30 to 45 seconds per side. You could also do this in a cast iron pan if you get it preheated very high heat.
Roast veggies for about 4 minutes, until starting to char slightly and soften.

This is the second time in two days that I have seen someone using Milanesa style sliced beef. Where do you get it? The other recipe was for fajitas, too, and now both of you have me wanting to make some!!


Cool, glad you guys like them. Were you able to find milanesa style beef or did you have to have the butcher cut it for you? I was just curious if it was only a local thing around here.
