These are the classic south Texas style beef fajitas: thinly sliced marinated flank steak rolled in a soft tortilla and served with all the fajita fixin's. Served at Chevys Fresh Mex in San Diego.
- 2 lbs skirt steaks
Agua Negra Marinade
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1⁄4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- To marinate the steak:.
- Place the meat in a resealable container.
- Pour the marinade over the meat and move the meat around to make sure it's evenly coated.
- Marinate in the refrigerator 6 to 8 hours.
- To grill the steak:.
- Place the beef on the grill, directly over the coals, and leave undisturbed until grill marks form, then rotate the meat 90 degrees to create a second set of marks.
- After 2 to 3 minutes, turn the beef to cook on the other side, using the same technique to form the grill marks.
- Transfer the beef to a work surface and slice.

I actually just made this over the weekend and it is very good. I love chevys and got the recipe from their cookbook. The only thing I will do different next time is add in more mexican seasonings. The flavor is awesome but has more asian flavor than mexican.
Very nice marinade, so perfect for a late Sunday dinner after feeding the cows and closing the door behind us. Stoked the fire and this light dinner was before us. I followed this exactly, but had some sliced onion & green pepper so I put them in the old iron skillet to soften, and the steak, cut in strips cooked until heated through~and the rest is history. Very yummy~Made for *I Recommend* Tag Game Fall 2008
Very good!! I made as directed, the only thing we did differently was grill it a bit longer, since we like our meat a little more on the medium well side. Very tender and tasty. A great recipe - thanks for posting!
