Steak Fajitas

My friends at Acabonac Farms sent me some delicious looking fajita strips, so I set off to make the tastiest fajitas anyone's ever had. Lucky for you, I definitely succeeded.

I love the fajita strips because they defrost in MINUTES, which means that if I'm not prepared for dinner in my house, I can still get a hearty, flavorful and healthful dinner on the table quickly. All you need to do is whip up this marinade, which is like a combination of a marinade and a dry rub, and slice up some veggies, and you'll be ready to celebrate Cinco de Mayo or any given Taco Tuesday. 

This is also a great meal-prep meal because you can keep the components separate until you're ready to serve. Serve them with tortillas, over greens, or in a hollowed out avocado and you've got fajitas three different ways. 

I think they're best on the grill, but you can also use a hot skillet indoors. Marinate your steak first so that by the time you've done everything else and it's ready to go on the grill, it's had some time to soak up the great flavors.  

Margarita anyone?

What I Did:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients.
  2. Season uncooked pre-cut steak with salt and pepper.
  3. Place seasoned steak in a bag and pour marinade over the steak. Refrigerate for 1-3 hours to tenderize and flavor the steak.
  4. Next, slice your onion and peppers in to long strips and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. 
  5. Grill your veggies until grill marks appear and you've reached your desired doneness. 
  6. Then, grill your steak, about 3 minutes per side (if already in strips)
  7. I served these with Siete Foods grain-free tortillas, but you can use whatever your family likes.
  8. Top with guacamole, salsa, or just a squeeze of lime!
