History of Fajitas

The fajita as we know it wasn’t always the sizzling dish we get served at a restaurant. In fact, the earliest mention of the fajita is of it being associated with cowboys that worked in the southern and western regions of Texas in the early 1930s.

What Is a Fajita?

The term fajitas comes from the Spanish word faja for skirt, belt or girdle, and fajita is just the diminutive form of the word.

The skirt steak is a long strip of meat, about 18 inches long and an inch or so thick, that is found beneath the heart and lungs of the cow. The skirts operate as diaphragm muscles and flank muscles, thus the term fajita — or “little belt” — is an apt description of the meat.
