Beef Fajitas w/ Chipotle Lime Marinade - Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! This evening I made Beef Fajitas w/ Chipotle Lime Marinade and used the "Beef Loin Flap Meat Steak" I picked up at Costco this weekend. This is the first I had ever seen or heard of it. I decided to marinate it for fajitas based on the responses I received from others about how best to use it. I marinated it for 7 to 8 hours and it turned out absolutely delicious! It was tender, but with some chew to it (the good kind of chew). In the past I have used sirloin steak or skirt steak for my fajitas...but I have to say, this meat was very flavorful and I would definitely buy and use it again. Hubby grilled it until it had nice grill marks on the outside but was still slightly pink on the inside (medium). We covered it and let it sit for about 20 minutes and then thinly sliced it on the diagonal against the grain. I cooked green and red pepper strips and onions to have with our fajitas. We filled grain free tortillas with the beef, veggies, cheese and sour cream. These were some of the best we've had. I snapped a few quick photos below. The recipe is linked above in the first sentence. I went back through my blog to see what we had for New Year's Eve last year and realized that I made beef fajitas last year, too...how funny is that? I wish all of you the Happiest & Healthiest New Year and may 2014 bring you love, joy and good health...and lots of good food (wheat and grain free, of course)! Enjoy! :-)
