A special marinade gives the meat in these fajitas outstanding flavor that's always a hit with my family. It's a fun and satisfying summer main dish using garden-fresh peppers and onions. -Cheryl Smith, The Dalles, Oregon

Ingredients

  • 1 beef flank steak (about 1 pound)
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • Green, sweet red and/or yellow peppers, julienned
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 8 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Sour cream and lime wedges, optional

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first nine ingredients; add steak. Seal bag; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill over high heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute onion and peppers if desired in oil for 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Slice meat into thin strips across the grain; place on tortillas. Top with vegetables; roll up. Serve with sour cream and lime wedges if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

I made this recipe this past weekend and was blown away!!! We always used a fajita package before, but never again. I did add some fresh cilantro to the marinade. Will be making this again for sure! Thanks for posting.

What a special dinner we had last night and the best part was when my husband, who's eaten my cooking for 55 yrs., told me what a delicious dinner it was yet he grilled the steak. For a side, I made Spanish Rice with a short-cut. While prepping the pepper/onions for the Fajitas, I chopped and sauteed extras, then added to cooked rice, along with a jar of homemade salsa with black beans. I'm anxious to try this dish now with chicken.-

I made this recipe with chicken breasts. The marinade has a great smoky flavor that was delicious. I served it with homemade guacamole.

Dee-lic-ious!!!! The marinade gives it a great smoky flavor, but not overpowering. I used chicken instead and grilled it outside. Serve with homemade guacamole, and your family will LOVE you!
