Skirt Steak Fajitas are one of my favorite things to make. I lived in San Antonio when I was younger and got spoiled with good Tex Mex at a young age. While many people will make their fajitas with flank steak, Texans know that a fajita is only a fajita when made with skirt steak. In fact, the word “fajita” is a derivation of the Spanish word “faja” which translates to “belt” or “girdle” in English. A skirt steak comes from the lower central area of the cow, specifically from the plate to rib area. This inexpensive cut of meat is great paired with this citrus- chili marinade that tenderizes while adding flavor and zest. These fajitas will trump any restaurant fajitas you will have! Enjoy!
