Beef and Chicken Fajitas

Even though you’re using the same marinade for the chicken and the beef, you can’t marinate them together. Chicken has to cook at a higher temperature than beef to kill any potential salmonella.

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. beer
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 4 tsp. lime juice
  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled and  smashed
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 lb. skirt steak
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 12 flour tortillas (8")

Directions

  • Combine the beer, ½ cup vegetable oil, lime juice, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, pepper, and cumin and divide into 2 large sealable bowls.
  • Trim any excess fat off the steak and chicken. Use a meat tenderizer to pound the chicken to ⅜" thick. Sprinkle the meat lightly with salt and place the beef in one container and the chicken in the other. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
  • Place a grill pan over medium-high heat and brush the ridges with oil. Place the onions on the pan and cook until translucent. Move to a bowl and keep warm. Scatter the peppers across the grill pan and cook until soft. Place them in the bowl with the onions.
  • Apply another coating of oil on the grill pan ridges. Cook the flank steak for 4–5 minutes on each side. Let it rest on a plate. Slice the steak into strips.
  • Apply another coating of oil on the grill pan ridges. Cook the chicken breasts for 6–7 minutes on each side. Let them rest on a plate. Slice the chicken into strips. Serve meat and vegetables with warm tortillas.
