I wanted to try this Skirt steak thing that so many people have been talking about. I tried to keep it mexican themed so I had fajita skirt steak w/ stuffed jalapenos.
Here are the jalapenos. Wear gloves!
I browned breakfast sausage in my cast iron skillet. I wanted to use the sausage drippings to fry the skirt steak.
I mixed the sausage with cream cheese and stuffed the jals with it. I then popped them in the oven for 12 minutes at 375 then broiled them for another 3.
Enter the skirt steak! It has been tenderized and marinating in a fajita seasoning blend for the better part of the day.
In the skillet I cooked the sausage in, i threw in a small pad of butter and a small portion of chopped onions. After letting them saute for a few, I cranked the heat up and I threw the steak in.
About three minutes on each side (i prefer medium) and boom! Dinner is served!
I do have a couple of questions. The steak was delicious but it was a bit on the tough side. Not too bad but I would like it a little less chewy. Any ideas?
As good as the steak was, the jalapenos were the highlight. I love those things but the wife doesnt. So I have to make them when she goes out of town.
