Mexican Fajitas with a Side Dish Recipe
Fajitas is one of the most popular and traditional Mexican dishes. Fajitas are not just fried meat in a tortilla (corn tortilla), but also necessarily a traditional set of side dishes or sauces: black bean paste, rice with Mexican spices, Pico de Gallo sauce and sour cream. Meat, beans and rice are cooked with traditional Mexican spices: cumin, oregano and, of course, seasoned with lime juice. You can't do without onions and hot peppers in this kitchen either. All these ingredients harmoniously complement each other and create a unique flavor of Mexican cuisine. Traditionally, rather cheap and not very soft pieces of beef are used for fajitas: peritoneum, sides and tenderloin (barrel, round, skirt, London broil, etc.). Therefore, it is very important for fajitas to cut the meat into very thin strips - across the fibers. In order for the meat to fry and remain juicy, cook them over very high heat. Of course, no one will forbid you to cook fajitas from more expensive steak chops: thick edge, thin edge, shackles, cereals and rump, and, of course, fillets. Although, in this case, it will not be quite a traditional fajita.

  1. Cut the meat into long narrow strips (0.5 x 1 x 8 cm). If we take the cuts indicated in the ingredients, then the piece of meat will already be the desired thickness, and if we take another type of meat, it may have to be cut into plates 1-1.5 cm thick first. It is important not to make thick pieces, because we need to fry the meat quickly.
