Does tri-tip make good fajitas and how would I spice that up?
That's great. Thanks. So if I grill the steak, I'm assuming I grill it whole and then cut it up after?It sure does! When I do fajitas I marinade the meat with
Juice from 3 limes
4 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 jalapeño minced
And 2 TBS white vinegar
Let it marinade for 12-24 hours and either grill it or if I do it in the stove top I’ll mix in some of the marinade while I cook it. I have two picky kids and a wife. And everyone tears it up. I also use the same for flank steak tacos.
If doing it on the stove too, I would just marinade it and then cut it into little slices before cooking it that way the little pieces can pick up some more of the flavor!
This sounds exactly what I was looking for something simple thank you.When it comes to fajitas, I had an old friend from the oil field give me 5-S plan I use every time:
Season (SPG for me)
Saute (with the veggies)
I would say that all depends on what y'all prefer. Just remember to factor in the sear and sauteing when it comes to overall doneness. For me, I just prefer a clean bite. Nobody likes taking the first bite and the whole fajita coming out with it. So I smoke to 130° IT, sear it on a raging hot fire to get some of that maillard reaction, slice it pretty thin (1/4" max) and then saute it with the veggies towards the end of the veggies being done.This sounds exactly what I was looking for something simple thank you.
At what IT should I smoke the Tri Tip to?
