Steak Fajitas Recipe

A zesty tomato and jalapeno relish and tender strips of steak make these traditional fajitas extra special. —Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake City, Utah
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 6 flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • Black beans, rinsed and drained, and guacamole

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 2. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute onion in oil until crisp-tender. Slice steak into thin strips across the grain; place on tortillas. Top with onion and the reserved tomato relish. Serve with black beans and guacamole. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

MY REVIEW

"I had to modify this to suit ingredients I had on hand. To save money I used thin-cut round steak--will not do that again! I substituted green bell pepper for the jalapeno, had to omit the cilantro. It was good, but it would have been better if I had followed the recipe more closely. Will try again."
