These are the best fajitas ever, and a much healthier version of the typically pan-fried greasy fajitas you find in restaurants. I also like to serve them in flatbreads instead of tortillas. — Erin Michniacki, Manhattan, KS
I entered the Indiana State Beef Contest and won first place with this recipe. A mixture of picante sauce, ketchup, cider vinegar and veggies enhances the tender slices of steak that are served over pasta. I use bow tie pasta, but you could substitute rice.

“I first tried this recipe after reading a similar one in a medical magazine in my doctor's office," says Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey. "It's easy, colorful, and the basting helps keep the kabobs juicy and tender.”
There's just enough ginger, chili powder and garlic powder in the sauce to spark the taste of this enjoyable steak specialty. For variety, you can substitute chicken or pork for the sirloin. If I'm in a hurry or don't have fresh vegetables on hand, I'll reach for two bags of frozen stir-fry vegetables instead.
This healthful stir-fry recipe is a family favorite. I've used a variety of meats and apples and sometimes replace the green onion with yellow onion. No matter what tweaks I make, it always tastes great. —Brittany McCloud, Kenyon, MN
With tasty tender slices of beef and fresh colorful vegetables, this mouthwatering stir-fry was designated "a keeper" by my husband the first time I made it. He loves the beef and asparagus, and I appreciate how quick it is to make.—JoLynn Hill, Roosevelt, Utah
"In summer, I love to marinate these steaks overnight, then grill them for family and friends," writes Tim Hanchon of Muncie, Indiana. "When the weather is not as nice, they can be cooked under the broiler." The recipe makes a lot, so you can use the extra steak to make Pepper Steak Salad or Steak Tortillas (also found in Recipe Finder).
