You’ll Win at the Grill when You Make Tex-Mex Fajitas

Are you looking for a new steak to grill or smoke? Try the outside skirt steak – a cornerstone of Tex-Mex cooking and the original, most authentic cut for fajitas. This chef’s favorite should be on your grill all summer. Read on for a great recipe and learn more about this epic cut.

Since there are only 2 per cattle, the outside skirt steak is something of a hot cut. We offer three types of outside skirt steak – Wagyu, Angus, and 100% grass-fed – to meet any taste and preference – at dartagnan.com.

Besides being among the most flavorful cuts, this long, thin piece of beef is quick-cooking, making it perfect for backyard BBQs and entertaining. The outside skirt steak is a special cut – just ask anyone in Texas.

In fact, Daniel Vaughn at Texas Monthly recently wrote about our Wagyu outside skirt steak and recreated one of his favorite dishes from a local Tex-Mex restaurant. The recipe from Valentina’s in Austin is included in his piece How I Made Smoked Skirt Steak Fajitas, Three Ways so you can try it at home. We highly recommend you do.
