Labor Day is upon us, and that means it’s time for one last summer bash. Labor Day and cookouts go hand in hand. What better way to spend a relaxing day off than enjoying some delicious food and drinks with your family and friends? And when it comes to satisfying the meat lovers at your party, there’s no better way to knock their socks off than with a Little Soya inspired meal.
Our Little Soya Sizzling Beef Fajitas are sure to steal the show at your Labor Day party. The Little Soya based marinade perfectly brings out the best flavors in the grilled beef (note: you can substitute chicken for this recipe).
Here’s how we like to make them:
LITTLE SOYA SIZZLING BEEF FAJITAS
3 pounds outside skirt steak
1/3 cup margarine
2 medium Spanish onions, cut into 1/4-inch julienne slices
4 medium green peppers, cut into 1/4-inch julienne slices
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 pound tomatoes, cut into wedges
2 1/2 cups Little Soya gluten-free soy sauce
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/4 cups white vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon white pepper
Combine soy sauce, water, vinegar, garlic and pepper in large container. Whip with wire whisk until well mixed.
Place meat in shallow pan. Pour Little Soya marinade over and let marinate in refrigerator 3 hours.
Remove meat from Little Soya marinade and cut into 1/2×3-inch strips. Melt margarine in large skillet. Add onions, green peppers and seasoning salt and sauté until vegetables are tender.
Place meat in large cast-iron skillet and sear over medium heat. Remove from skillet when browned. Place another iron skillet upside down over high flame. Heat almost to point of smoking, about 90 seconds.
Remove hot serving skillet from burner and pile with meat strips and vegetables. Place tomato wedges over meat and vegetables. Garnish with lemon wedges. Makes 6 servings.
Variation: For Chicken Fajitas, use 3 pounds chicken breasts. Marinate and cut according to recipe for beef fajitas. Prepare as for beef, but baste chicken with sauce while sautéing.
1 1/4 cups orange juice
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
Ta-da! You’re all done! Now, just sneak a few bites, you know, just to make sure it tastes as delicious as it smells. Serve it up with some tortillas, and you’re all set!
Oh wait, what’s that? You’re thirsty? These Little Soya cocktail recipes are sure to whet your whistle! May we recommend having a Little Soya Michelada with your fajitas? Mmm!!!
