In this episode I prepared "Steak Fajitas", using a wonderful seasoning called "Cuban-Mojo" made by Pirate Jonnys. They were a big hit with the entire family! Needless to say, there were no leftovers! Maybe I should have made a double batch? I fired up my Mojoe Griddle with a dual jet propane burner this go around, and as expected, it worked beautifully!
|Extra virgin olive oil||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Water||1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)|
|Seasoning||6 Tablespoon (Pirate jonny's Cuban Mojo style)|
|For other ingredients|
|Chopped beef||2 Pound (Trimmings from steak, roast etc)|
|Onion||1 , sliced lengthwise|
|Green bell pepper||1 , sliced lengthwise|
|Chopped cilantro||2 Tablespoon|
|Salt & pepper||To Taste|
1. Heat olive oil in a pan, simmer garlic in the hot oil for 2- 3 minutes, until it releases its flavor. Do not burn it. Set it aside to come down to room temperature.
2. In a bowl, mix together cuban mojo seasoning with water. Drop in the olive oil and garlic into the mix. This would be the marinade for the beef.
3. In a ziploc bag, put the meat. Pour the marinade over it. Seal the bag and let it marinate for about 2 hours in the refrigerator.
4. Heat up the Mojo Griddle.
4. Saute onions and green bell pepper with salt and pepper on the hot griddle. Move the veggies to the colder side of the griddle.
5. Cook the beef. Season with salt and pepper as per taste. Then mix the veggies to the meat. Continue to cook them together. Season with chopped cilantro. Set it aside.
6. Heat up the tortillas on both sides.
7. Place some meat in the center of the tortillas. Fold it to make fajita. Repeat the same with others.
8. Place the fajitas on a serving dish and serve.
