What Type of Steak Is Best For Fajitas
You’ve got four great options. I personally use flank steak, since I like the mild beef flavor, but all four are the best steak for fajitas. Skirt steak and flank steak are the traditional options.
Flank Steak Fajitas– Very mild beef flavor and a lean cut.
Skirt Steak Fajitas– A bit stronger beef flavor than flank steak. It’s also the leanest option so a bit tougher than the other options. As such you’ll want to aim for a medium-rare to medium final temp.
Flat Iron Steak – Not common, but still a great option. Has good marbling making it more flavorful and tender than the flank steak and skirt steak.
Sirloin Steak Fajitas – Nice beef flavor and marbling. It’s thicker than the other options, so you’ll have very tender thicker slices.
