Fajitas were originally made with skirt steak, hence, the name fajita coming from faja or “belt”. Texas ranch hands have been making them since the 1930s and the dish’s popularity is still evident in every Mexican or Tex Mex restaurant in the U.S. Skirt steak is tough and typically marinated overnight for tenderness prior to grilling, but the slow cooker automatically takes care of transforming the meat to a tender, flavorful base for this meal.
