(Public for All)

Modeled after the lime grilled beef fajitas at Lupe's in Houston, these fajitas are best enjoyed with friends, margaritas, and Sol (the beer)


  • 1 Skirt Steak
  • 5 Limes
  • 1 tbsp of chili powder
  • 1 tbsp of Paula's house seasoning
  • 1 tbsp of Paula's seasoning salt
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro
  • 6 garlic cloves


  1. Tenderize the strip steaks by pounding with a meat tenderizer (or the flat size of a nice)

  2. Coat lightly with Paula Dean's house seasoning and seasoned salt

  3. Place meat in a pan, cover with the juice of 5 large limes

  4. Chop up 1 cilantro bunch, 6 garlic gloves and mix together. Cover the cilantro and garlic with chili powder. Run the cilantro, garlic, and chili powder over the meat

  5. Marinade for 6-9 hours (most likely overnight)

Heat a grill over high heat, preferably using no-lighter fluid and mesquite charcoal.

Grill the fajitas until done, probably 5 minutes on each side. Remove from grill, let sit for 5 minutes

Cut against the grain (normally the opposite of the way you think it would be), then cut in half.

Serve with tortillas, guacamole, and queso.
