Flank steak is a bood substitute for skirt steak cut from legs of beef. It's lean, and some people find it too tough. Citrus marinade helps to tenderize it. Make sure the membrane is cut. If using flank, cut meat into strips. For chicken fajitas, use skinless boneless chicken breasts. Do not marinade for more than 60 minutes. -- Beth Whitley Duke, Food Editor, Amarillo Globe-News, Amarillo, TX
