A fajita is a term found in Tex-Mex cuisine, commonly referring to any grilled meat usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. The term originally referred to the cut of beef used in the dish which is known as skirt steak. Popular meats today also include chicken, pork, shrimp, and all cuts of beef. In restaurants, the meat is usually cooked with onions and bell peppers. Popular condiments are shredded lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, pico de gallo, cheese, and tomato.
1 ½ lbs flank steak
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons soy sauce, preferably the low-sodium variety
1 (7oz) can of green chilies
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 bell peppers, any color, cut into slices
1 large onion, cut into slices
1. Start by placing 1/2 of your onion slices on the bottom of the crockpot. Place flank steak on top of onions. (the onion ‘base” will keep the meat from drying out)
2. Next, mix together the chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Sprinkle on top of the flank steak.
3. Pour soy sauce over the top of the steak and season and spread minced garlic evenly over top of meat.
4. Top with the rest of your sliced onions, green chilies and bell peppers. Cover and cook on HIGH for 5-6 hours until meat can easily be shredded with 2 forks.
