What nationality are fajitas?
The first evidence of the fajita comes from Mexican ranch workers living in West Texas along the Rio Grande in the late 1930s and early 1940s.
What cut of steak is best for fajitas?
Rump, skirt or flank steak are the best cuts for fajitas! I prefer skirt steak (pictured). It’s more tender and flavourful than flank and can be cooked well done (for those who prefer well) without getting tough and chewy. Flank steak is a leaner cut and is better cooked rare — medium.
Why are fajitas so expensive?
If that cringey commercial isn’t enough reason to forego fajitas, here’s another: Although they’re supposed to be made from skirt steak, such factors as increased demand and import/export tariffs have raised skirt steak’s price to the point where many restaurants find it prohibitively expensive.
