Every time I go to a Mexican restaurant I love watching the steam roll across the room as the server delivers a plate of steak fajitas to a lucky customer.
Not to mention the mouth-watering smell that it provides as it drifts by the table.
I love Mexican food and I always promise myself that I am going to branch out and try something new and different from the expansive menu at my favorite local establishment.
So I sit down to look at the menu and within minutes I get a whiff of an order of steak fajitas and I lose all control. I slowly close the menu and when they take my order, steak fajitas it is!
I am never disappointed with the flavor or texture of this classic meal. The meat is super tender and the vegetables are cooked to perfection.
Not too soft, and not too crunchy. Most of the time I don’t even bother putting them on a tortilla. I just place the steak, peppers, and onions on the bed of lettuce, add a little pico de gallo and guacamole and I am in heaven!
Because of my love for them, I knew that I had to recreate the steak fajita recipe at home.
I tried a few times, and although the meat was flavorful and tender, the veggies just weren’t perfect. The texture was good, but they had no flavor.
Of course, they had a pepper and onion taste, but they didn’t have that traditional fajita seasoning flavor.
The next time that I decided to try to make them at home, I decided to pour some of the steak marinade in the bag with the pre-cut veggies as well.
The result – AMAZING!
Both the steak and the peppers and onion combination was filled with that traditional steak fajita flavor. Everyone raved about them and now they ask me to make them at least once a week!
So now I need to go back to my favorite Mexican restaurant and finally order something new!
