Fajita, traditionally served with tortilla, is re-imagined as a hot sandwich, smeared with chimichurri sauce, and served with guacamole and salsa. Fun and easy to cook on the Indoor Electric Grill, and a great way to get some veggies in your meals.
Ingredients (serves 4):
*This recipe was developed for the Indoor Electric Grill (EB-DLC10). Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.
Slice the skirt steak
against the grain into strips about one inch wide and 4-5 inches long.
Marinate the meat. In a
zipper storage bag, place all ingredients for marinade and mix well. Add the
sliced skirt steak to the bag, massage over the bag, then set for a minimum 1
hour and up to 4 hours in the refrigerator. Before grilling, remove the bag of
meat from refrigerator and set to room temperature for a minimum 30 minutes to
1 hour. Take out meat from marinade bag, pat surface dry with paper towel.
Mix all chimichurri ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.
Mix all salsa
ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.
Make guacamole. Remove
pit and peel avocado and place in a bowl. Using a fork gently mash avocado a
few times then stir all other guacamole ingredients together. Set aside.
Cut onion and bell
peppers into half-inch wide strips. Place them in a bowl, add olive oil,
sprinkle ground cumin, salt and black pepper, then mix to coat the vegetables.
Turn on the Indoor
Electric Grill, set to HI to preheat.
Open bolillos with a
horizontal side cut, then cut in halves. When the grill preheating completes in
about 6 minutes, place on the grill and toast one minute per side. Transfer to
a plate, spread chimichurri inside. Cover with aluminum foil.
Place peppers and onions
on the grill, stir occasionally for 2 minutes, then turn heat to MID. Move
vegetables to one side of the grill and continue to cook until they soften.
Place meat on the empty
side of the grill. Turn the meat after 2 minutes, cook other side for 2-3
minutes or until cooked through.
When the meat and
vegetables are cooked, turn off the grill,
transfer and place the meat and vegetables inside the bolillos.
Serve with remaining
chimichurri, salsa and guacamole on the side. Enjoy!
