steak fajita marinade

September 29, 2011

I’m a bad food blogger because I forgot to take pictures of this recipe.  But my pictures aren’t usually great anyway so I am sure no one misses them.

Does it even look appetizing when there is no flash and the food is really washed out?  I need to learn more about taking pictures.

So this recipe for steak fajita marinade stemmed from the surplus of garlic I currently have.  Caninos farmer’s market on Airline was selling a dozen heads of garlic for $2.  I am not sure how much garlic is worth — maybe this is an average price.  I don’t know, but it looked like a deal to me and I was thrilled to take advantage of it.

And I was serving fresh margaritas the night I made these so I started with a garlic-margarita base (lime juice and tequila).  Throw in some Mexican spices and this one is a keeper.

Steak Fajita Marinade

1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice
3 tbsp tequila
10-12 cloves chopped garlic
2 tbsp cumin
5 tsp salt
4 tsp pepper
1-2 tsp cayenne

flank steak

Combine all ingredients in a ziplock and mix well.  Add flank steak and marinade for up to 12 hours.  Grill flank steak for 6-7 minutes per side.  Let rest for 10 minutes and then slice against the grain.
