Quick Marinade Steak Fajitas

What do you usually order from a Mexican Food Restaurant?! My husband and I ALWAYS split the combo fajitas and each get a frozen marg! 🙂 I never really make fajitas at home and I don’t know why because they take NO time and the skirt steak is so easy to marinade and only needs a few minutes to soak up all the deliciousness!! Sear the meat on high heat for a few minutes per side and let rest to get the perfect medium rare!! Absolute melt in your mouth deliciousness! You’ll have to try these ASAP!
