1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt and pepper

Flank steak is a bood substitute for skirt steak cut from legs of
beef.It's lean, and some people find it too tough. Citrus marinade
helps totenderize it. Make sure the membrane is cut. If using flank,
cut meatinto strips. For chicken fajitas, use skinless boneless chicken
breasts.Do not marinade for more than 60 minutes. -- Beth Whitley Duke,
FoodEditor, Amarillo Globe-News, Amarillo, TX - ----- In a glass
containeror a zip-lock style baggie, mix the marinade: lime thru salt
and pepper.'Cook' the meat in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes or
longer (about6 hours is best but can tolerate 10 hours).Discard
marinade. Grill meat: on gas/charcoal grill or use broiler, oruse a
ridged-skillet. Fast cook then shred/cut. Meanwhile, soften
thetortillas.To serve: let guests assemble their own fajitas.Pat's
notes: pan-fry in a little olive oil lots of green bell pepperstrips
and sliced onions, separated into rings. Season with a mix ofpepper,
New Mexico chili powder and pinch of cumin and salt. Deglazewith a
splash of malt vinegar or a light beer. Tip: A sprinkle ofLawrys'
seasoning salt instead of salt has worked well to 'brighten'
themarinaded meat.(1996) mcRecipe format: Path c/o McRecipe List Dec 96
