I am rating the marinade and not the cooking method as we used a gas grill instead of charcoal. The marinade is so delicious and the aroma told of good things to come. I did grill some onions and bell peppers in a grill basket to serve with the steak which was thinly sliced after a 5 to 10 minute standing time. Fresh guacamole was served as an accompaniment along with corn tortillas and Mexican Yellow Rice and Black Beans. Thank you for a wonderful recipe that I will use again and again.
This recipe was muy delicioso! I tasted the marinade before pouring it over the steak and I was in heaven. I made a second batch to pour over the fajitas later and to serve with chips. Perfecto! Marinated the skirt steak for four hours in the fridge in three separate plastic bags. I piled charcoal in a mound on one side of my grill and seared the steak on the grill over the red-hot coals, then transferred to a foil pouch. I also heated sliced onions and green peppers in a foil pouch over the coals. I moved both to the center of the grill, tossed foil-wrapped tortillas on the top, and cooked for another 15 minutes. My wife and three sons begged me to make this again. They won't have to wait long.
I marinated the steak overnight with just a meat tenderizer not knowing what to use when I found this recipe the next day. I used about 1T of chipotles in adobo (I open the can and whirl in a mini food processor and store in the fridge for when I need it) I used the 2T brown sugar and about 1-2T honey. I ended up only marinating for about 1 1/2 hours and it was great. Can't wait to make again and marinate overnight. Thank you so much for this recipe, it's exactly what we've been looking for.
phenomenal! It tasted so amazingly good, will make it again
Outstanding technique for cooking the steak. Couldn't have been easier. Steak was tender and juicy with a great smokiness. Definitely something I will do again. The flavor was not like any fajitas I've had before. I thought the onion flavor was too pronounced. I had a hard time tasting the other flavors. I don't think I would liquefy the marinade again. That would subdue the onion flavor a lot. I'd also cut back on the sugar. Given those changes, I think the flavor would be spot on for me. Enjoyed the assortment of veggies. I used all of them except mushrooms. The tortillas were jam packed with good stuff. A filling meal.
who ever invented this should be a million air
We used a cast-iron griddle on a gas grill to get the contact heat, and sliced the steak before marinating. Other than that, we followed the recipe closely and loved it. The blender gave us a thick, creamy marinade that coated everything beautifully, and the flavor coming off the grill was marvelous. We love fajitas and these are great!
