After cleaning the ash from the grill this afternoon it was time to fire up the grill for something good and we just happened to have some flank steak marinating for fajitas. Funny how much better and hotter a grill burns when it's had a good cleaning. I used some lump charcoal from a new bag of Cowboy and lit it then I had to run to the office to pick something up and left it for my wife to watch. I came back and it was pegged out on the dome thermometer and had to be over 1000*. Looked like lava from a volcano.

So, I grilled the onions and peppers and then the flank steak.






I grilled three strip steaks I was supposed to do yesterday but, I was stuck on a pastrami sandwich




A nice pile of juicy meat that was hard to not eat just as it was

Looks great, what did you marinate the flank steak in? Being from San Antonio, I'm partial to Tex-Mex fajitas, but I have yet to find the right marinade for that flavor yet. I usually use Worcestershire sauce with a little bit of lime, along with some seasoning thrown in. Not bad but the search continues...

Here's the marinade recipe.


Cajun's Fajita Marinade

1  Cup Olive Oil
1  Cup Soy Sauce
3  Tbsp. Hot Sauce
2  Tbsp. Cayenne Pepper
1  Tbsp Fiesta Fajita Seasoning
2  Tbsp. Liq. Mesquite or Liq. Smoke(if you have it)
2-3 Tbsp. Black Pepper
5  Toes Fresh Garlic Crushed  or 3-4 Tbsp. Granulated Garlic
1/2 -3/4  Med. to Lg. Onion Sliced thin. Heck Use the whole thing.
 3  Fresh Jalapenos sliced thin(seeds included)

Note: If you want, you can add some Red Pepper Flakes for a lil more heat

Mix together well in a glass bowl. Place meat(Beef, Chicken or Pork)in a large zip type bag and pour mixture into bag. Zip bag closed removing as much air as you can. roll meat in bag to massage coating all surfaces. Refrigerate 3 or 4 hours up to overnight. Remove from fridge 1 hour before grilling to allow it to come up in temp.
Grill over HOT fire. Be careful when putting meat onto the grill. The fire will flare up but, it will go down. If not, close lid for a minute or two. Cook till done(usual temps for each meat). This varies with how hot the grill and coals are, and distance from heat. When done. allow to rest 10 minutes and slice on a bias against the grain of the meat.
Enjoy!

Don't use salt as the Soy sauce is salty enough.
Before placing my grate on the grill I like to add a chunk of Mesquite or Pecan wood for a good smokey flavor. Allow the grate to get hot before placing meat on it.

Is it just me, or does that marinade look like it belongs with the other recipes?

Go ahead, be my guest. I placed in the recipe section on the other forum but it was done before so many other recipes were downloaded so it's like 3rd or 4th from the beginning or bottom.

Cajun,

If you'll edit the top post by adding the marinate recipe I'll move it "real quick like"!

Thanks,
