Grilled Fajita's

Grilled Fajitas

I seem to always be on the hunt for a good fajita recipe and this one was very good and flavorful! 

½ medium onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp ground cumin
3 whole pickled jalapenos, chopped (2 Tbsp)
½ tsp granulated garlic
2 pounds skirt steak
1/3 cup lime juice (2 limes)
2 Tbsp jalapeno pickling liquid (the vinegar-liquid used to pickle & flavor jarred & canned jalapenos)
1 Tbsp olive or vegetable oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce
veggies you like (i used green and red bell pepper)

Place half of the onions in the bottom of a nonreactive dish. In a small bowl, mix cumin, jalapenos, & garlic together, then rub the mixture on all sides of meat. Put the steak into the dish, on top of the onions. Pour the lime juice, jalapeno pickling liquid, & oil over everything, turning the meat to coat. Sprinkle the remaining onions on top of the meat. Cover & refrigerate at least 1 hour, preferable overnight, turning once.

Rub grilling rack with vegetable oil to prevent meat from sticking. Then heat very hot or preheat broiler.
Pour soy sauce onto the meat. Grill or broil very close to meat source, 3-5 minutes on each side.
Transfer meat to cutting board. Set aside for a few minutes. Then cut the meat into thin strips. Serve with corn or flour tortillas!
