Beef Tri Tip Fajitas

Howdy,

Before I get started on the fajitas, I gotta get started on the Friday night beverages! To go with the steak fajitas I figured I needed something refreshing with Tequila to go with it. The clear answer was a classic lime Margarita.

But back to the meat… I took the Tri Tip that I had thawed it out in the fridge over night and then I hit it with a little olive oil and then Dizzy Pig Cow Lick and put it back in the fridge while I prepped everything else.

I then fired up the XL. Got it going to about 600 where I could sear the Tri Tip

When the steak was ready I put it on the raised grid, dropped the temp to about 400F and put the cast iron skillet on to heat up. I had cut up some onions, bell pepper and jalapenos.

Onions went on first

I added the peppers

And then let them cook down for a bit

I pulled the Tri Tip off at about 130F and let it rest for about 5 minutes, but it wasn’t long enough. This is what happens when you don’t let your meat rest!!!! Be warned!!!

Finally made up some Fajitas with some fresh guacamole.

Tri Tip, worked great for making Fajitas! Sure you could use flank or skirt, but Tri Tip just has so much beefy flavour and stands up to the spices very well! I highly recommend it if you can find it!!!

Happy Egging!
