Types of cuts you can use:
- Chicken: breast and thighs
- Beef: outside and inside skirt steak, flap meat and flank steak
Browning the entire cuts of meat/chicken creates depth of flavor. As a result, it will prevent overcooking or steaming. Flavor, plus juiciness, makes for the perfect fajitas.
Tips for browning 1. Allow the cuts to warm up to room temperature before cooking. To do this, simply pull it out of the fridge 15-20 minutes before cooking it. This makes for a more even cooking process. 2. Make sure the pan is hot when you add the protein. 3. Avoid over-crowding the pan, brown/cook in separate batches if needed.
Pan you can use
A cast iron pan is ideal for making fajitas, but if you don’t have one; use a stainless steel or non-stick pan. Another great alternative is grilling! So you definitely have options.
Cooking temperatures for beef
Chicken should always be fully cooked, so Make sure the chicken is cooked to a safe internal temperature of 165°F as stated by the CDC.
