Grilled Steak Fajitas Recipe

Publisher Photo
This tasty main dish is as quick and easy to assemble as tacos. Marinating the meat overnight makes it very tender. We like the hearty and flavorful steak slices. I serve the fajitas with Spanish rice, refried beans and a gelatin dessert. -Pamela Pogue, Quitman, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 large onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled and sliced, optional
  • Sour cream, optional

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, add beef. In another large resealable plastic bad, add the onion and green pepper.
  2. In a small large bowl combine the chilies, lemon juice, vinegar, oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, salt and pepper. Pour 1-1/2 cups over meat. Pour remaining marinade over vegetables. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Drain meat and vegetables, discarding marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium-hot heat for 10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  4. Meanwhile, cut two pieces of heavy-duty foil into 18-in. x 12-in. rectangles. Wrap tortillas in one piece and vegetables in the other; seal foil tightly. Grill, covered, over indirect heat for 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally.
  5. Cut steak into 1/8-in. slices across the grain; place on tortillas. Top with vegetables and roll up. Serve with avocado and sour cream if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
