Spice Up Game Day with Harris Ranch House Fajitas
Fall weekends are a great time to gather with friends and family and root for your favorite football team. Whether the celebration takes you to a little league field, a professional stadium, or the neighbor’s living room, a crowd-pleasing platter of steak fajitas can make it a sizzling celebration.
One of the secrets to great beef is meticulous attention to feeding practices. Harris Ranch is one of just a few producers in the country that produces beef exclusively from cattle fed in their own feedlot. Harris Ranch cattle spend approximately 85% of their lives grazing on grass, then they’re fed a nutritionally balanced diet of corn and other feed grains, plus alfalfa hay, vitamins and minerals. The feed is milled at Harris Ranch under the guidance of a consulting animal nutritionist. The result is a juicy, flavorful cut of beef.
Harris Ranch House Fajitas are a great recipe to keep handy when entertaining a hungry crowd since the preparation is easy, and the recommended skirt steak, flank steak, or flap meat, are inexpensive cuts that won’t break the bank. The following recipe serves 4-6 hungry people, but can easily be multiplied to feed a whole team.
