OK, so I noticed I have been slacking on some foodie posts. Let’s face it, I love my food. Mexican food is a big favorite of mine. While many people will make their fajitas with flank steak but really should be made with skirt steak. In fact, the word “fajita” is a derivation of the Spanish word “faja” which translates to “belt” or “girdle” in English. A skirt steak comes from the lower central area of the cow, specifically from the plate to rib area. This inexpensive cut of meat is great paired with this citrus- chili marinade that tenderizes while adding flavor and zest! Get ready to enjoy.
As you know by now, I love to grill. Give me anything I food and I will figure out a way to grill it. Today we are going to make a Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich With Grilled Peppers And Onions. Tri Tip you say? Well tri-tip is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin sub primal cut. It is a small triangular muscle, usually 1.5 to 2.5 lbs. (675 to 1,150g) per side of beef but that is not important right now (in my best Leslie Nielsen/Dr. Rumack voice – Airplane The Movie). It originated in the Santa Maria area of California and cut from the Bottom Sirloin of the cow.
