    Recommendation for marinade/seasonings for beef fajitas?

    I've had this meat for a while that I decided I'd finally use for fajitas and take them to work tonight. I just want to make sure my marinade or seasonings are primal. Amazing how much crap is anything we use for flavor in all of our foods.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance!!

    For fajitas I use lime juice, garlic, and cilantro, maybe a little cumin.

    My favorite beef and pork seasoning is Montreal steak seasoning (sometimes called Canadian steak seasoning). Marinate teh meat in some olive oil with some of that seasoning then grill. Pretty darn tasty!

    Beef broth to cover, 1 tbsp oregano, 2 tbsp parsley, tbsp basil, 6-12 cloves garlic crushed, 1/2 onion chopped, 1 pinch salt, 1 jalapeno chopped, 5-8 grinds black pepper.

    Olive oil + red wine + spicy stuff (chile, pepper, etc.) = delicious

    Had beef marinated in Tamari at a dinner party last week. It was super freakin awesome but being soy-based not super freakin primal. It IS fermented tho - if you gotta go soy, that's the way to go.

    If you have the time -- marinate in yogurt, fresh basil, and cumin. Takes longer for the meat to "soften" but OMG was this good on the country ribs I made last week.
    If I don't live my dream, who will?

    My son turned me on to smoked paprika. I buy it by the pound now. Gringo chipotle? (I use some chipotle too, but can't use enough to get the full flavor I want because of the heat.)

    So I'd rub with paprika and chipotle, and squirt on lime juice at the end and eat with cilantro.

    Beef+smoked paprika+lime+cilantro = food of the gods.
