Grilled Fajitas with Pico de Gallo Recipe
This is a good recipe when you’re pressed for time. The beef doesn’t need to marinate very long before grilling, and the accompanying vegetable relish is easy to stir up with just a few ingredients. It makes a delicious meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings
- 3 tablespoons lime juice, divided

- 3. Drain and discard marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
