Beef Fajitas

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 20 min.


2 servings

My husband never tires of Mexican food. I usually serve these fajitas with Mexican rice and pinto beans.


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef flank steak (about 3/4 pound), cut into thin strips
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • Salsa, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine the oil, lemon juice, garlic, lemon zest, chili powder and pepper. Place half in a resealable plastic bag; cover and refrigerate remaining marinade. Add meat to bag. Seal and turn to coat; refrigerate for 4-8 hours.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. In a skillet, heat reserved marinade. Add meat and green onions. Cook and stir until meat reaches desired doneness. Using a slotted spoon, place about 1/2 cup meat mixture down the center of each tortilla. Top with salsa if desired. Fold sides over meat mixture.
