Well I've just joined the forum.
I guess what brought me here, is the fact I was hoping one of you guys could help me.
There's a restaurant/bar that I go to allot for lunch. I've two favourite meals.
The spicy beef fajitas
The spicy beef pasta... mmmmm
Anyways, The meal is basically - Chicken/beef, peppers, onions, rapped in tortilla.
With a side of garlic cubes... (to be explained later...)
However the tastiness of it all comes from the sauce and possibly the marinade.
So I guess there are two questions.
I didnít want to bother the chef to much but he told me basically that itís simply a peppered sauce with salsa added.
I just canít seem to get it right though, itís appears burnt orange in colour and itís really tangee and peppery.
Iím wondering if he creates his own salsa sauce? I guess heís be going for money saving options as this is a cheap lunchtime meal.
The peppered sauce base Iím using is a basic flour and butter roux
Cup of beef stock
Iíve tried adding a tablespoon or 2 of Salsa from a jar. Just doesnít quite do the trick though.
The beef seems to be marinaded in a similar sauce, itís similar in colour at least, however thereís a notable difference in taste when you request the beef fajitaís as opposed the chicken.
Any ideas greatly appreciated... Sorry if the post seems a little disjointed/vague.
