Best Beef Fajitas Recipe

“My sister, Laurie, served these yummy fajitas on a hot summer night,” Linere Silloway explains from East Charleston, Vermont. “They’re the best I’ve ever tasted.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef flank steak (1/2 pound)
  • 1/2 each medium sweet red and green pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Sour cream, salsa and shredded cheddar cheese, optional


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add beef. Seal bag and turn to coat. Pour remaining marinade into another large resealable plastic bag; add peppers and onion. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate beef and vegetables overnight.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade; set vegetables aside. Grill beef, covered, over medium heat for 7-8 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 10 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, place vegetables in a grill wok or basket. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Thinly slice steak across the grain; place on tortillas. Top with vegetables; roll up. Serve with sour cream, salsa and cheese if desired. Yield: 2 servings.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: If you do not have a grill wok or basket, use a disposable foil pan. Poke holes in the bottom of the pan with a meat fork to allow liquid to drain.

"This was very good, and easy. I used top sirloin, not flank steak. I omitted the onion but added corn and tomatoes. I also added some chili pepper, coriander, and cumin. I also had to cook the whole thing on the stove top because it was too cold to BBQ. Turned out great, my whole family loved it, and another family I made it for!"
