What is it about Mexican Food that everyone seems to love? Over here in the WineTista home, we love Mexican Night! I have cool memories of our adventures in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where we made friends with a random Mexican guy while touring the streets of Puerto Vallarta. He took us to a hole-in-a-wall Cantina in which we had to vigilantly walk across a suspended bridge to get to the restaurant. The locals looked at us funny, but I didn’t care because the taste of that authentic Carne Asada I had is still ingrained in my mind, and this was about three years ago!
We’ve got our fresh tomatoes, cilantro, lime and a little salt and pepper for our homemade pico de gallo! You can add some minced jalapeños too!
Slice your red and green peppers. Don’t forget your onions. I used yellow onions; but if you want a little kick – use red onions.
About a pound of steak! Flank steak is the official steak for fajitas, however, I used thinly sliced sirloin that I pounded to my heart’s content. You have to tenderize your meat somehow! BONUS: It makes for a great stress reliever too.
The thing I love most about cooking is that one does not need to be so accurate with measurements, as opposed to baking. I eyeballed my spices, and I made sure to make it really simple. I can take a little heat so I was a bit generous with the cayenne pepper!
Combine all that Mexican spice goodness, and marinate it for a few hours.
Sauté your fresh veggies and set aside. Then sauté your steak quickly! Remember, we don’t want tough meat. Do you like hard meat? Me neither.
