I got this recipe out of a 'Green Beret Cookbook' created by the 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne)wives and family members. We absolutely love this marinade for fajitas. Would like you to give it a try. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Defintely one of our favorites for grilling!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Tenderize steak. Have the butcher tenderize steak for you or score with a knife and pound it out. Soak 8 to 12 hours in marinade; put slices of onion and lemons between soaking slabs of meat. Cook slabs over hot coals. Baste with leftover marinade sauce. Cook medium well; cut against the grain in 3/4 inch strips. Serve hot with flour tortillas.
  2. We usually fill tortillas with onion,sliced meat, and pepper jack cheese. Fold over and grill tortillas on grill for a few minutes.
  3. We have also added other vegetable such as green and red peppers and mushrooms. Enjoy!
