I like a nice steak or chicken fajita every now and again. The cast iron the sizzle the apparent freshness the some assembely requirted part. The one thing I dont really understand is why the candle to keep the plate hot.
Its a 1000 degree cast iron plate. You could serve the plate on an ice cube and it would still be hot for quite some time. I aways blow the candle out right away as I dont really want my cheap ass cut of steak overcooking on my plate. Its funny at times and my wife thinks I am a nut and servers sometimes want to relight it depending on the resturant. But really mexican resturants always love to give you plates so hot a mid-rare steak will be mid-well before you are done with it. Why the fajitas? Whay are they the ones that need a candle when the plate is already hotter than anyhting else outside of the kitchen. I checked the other day and the plate was still hot after I finished and I blew tha candel out the second the server brought the food.
I dont really know if I am complaining as the blowing out of the candle has become part of the whole fajita experience for me. I was just hoping for an answer?
