    I use flank steak to make fajitas. Very tender and tasty.
    We make our own fajita seasoning, then you can either
    grill it or we use a cast iron skillet on the stove.

    Fajita Seasoning Mix:

    1 1/2 teaspoon Cumin ground
    1/4 teaspoon Black pepper ground
    1/2 teaspoon Oregano dried, crushed
    1/8 teaspoon Garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon Salt
    1/8 teaspoon Onion powder
    1/4 teaspoon Red pepper ground

    Instructions for Fajita Seasoning
    1) Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

    My mom makes the best flank steak. She would marinate in Italian Dressing for 24 hours, then have my dad grill it. Easy and Fantastic! If you can't grill outside, maybe try a grill pan.... I think it can be tough if you do it in a skillet. You could also cook it in the broiler, I've had success with that.

    I use Jerky seasoning. If it turns out tough; guess what?

    I made dressing and rolled it up inside the flank, baked it very slow oven, crock pot would probaby work too with gravy to keep it moist. Best thing my husband said he ate in a long time. I haven't made it for a long time, and he is diabetic and not suppose to have beef because his kidneys have been affected, but it sure was good at the time!!! I tied it with string to keep it all rolled up.
