How to Make Beef Essentials: The Ultimate Fajita Marinade


  2. My favorite steak for fajitas is the flat-iron. A good steak with good flavor.
  3. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  5. Add the steaks, and marinade to a Ziploc bag, and refrigerate for six hours.
