One of my subscribers suggested to me to create a fajitas recipe but with beef ! I obviously accepted the challenge. I used beef flap that I marinated in lime and beer ! The flavours are balanced, the meat is juicy and above all, the ingredients are easy to pronounce…

Ingredients for the marinade

  • In a bowl, add all the ingredients for the fajitas spices and mix. Set aside.
