Jay O’Callahan NASA story “Forged in the Stars”
1 pound beef steak or lamb, sliced across the grain paper-thin
OR 1 pound boneless chicken, sliced thin and bite-size
OR the same amount of shrimp, shelled.
For every two people cook:
1 medium tomato, skin on, in bite-sized chunks
1 medium onion, cut in half and each half quartered
1 small green pepper (or mild variety of Mexican pepper) cut bite-size
Season the meat and vegetables lightly with salt and pepper plus (except shrimp) a very light dusting of cumin. Heat cast-iron skillet very hot. Add vegetables. Sear and toss 2-3 minutes, then remove to a serving bowl. Re-heat pan without cleaning. Add a tiny bit of oil and cook meat until done, then remove to a separate serving bowl.
Serve on skewers with tortillas and salsa on the side. You can assemble fajitas yourself or allow guests to assemble for extra fun. Into each small tortilla put less than you think you need of meat and vegetables, to taste, and fold just in half or into a little envelope shape. Some people add cheese, some enjoy hot pepper sauce or fresh salsa or chopped fresh scallions or cilantro.
