Fantastic Beef Fajitas

Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak or flank steak, trimmed and cut against the grain into 1/4-inch strips
  • MARINADE:
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • FAJITAS:
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 8 flour tortilla shells, warmed
  • 2 avocados, peeled and sliced
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable bag, combine marinade ingredients; add beef. Seal and refrigerate for 3-6 hours or overnight, turning several times.
  • 2. Discard marinade. In a skillet, saute onion and pepper in 1 tablespoon oil until crisp-tender; remove from pan. Pat steak strips dry with paper towels. Add remaining oil and saute meat until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Return vegetables to pan and heat through.
  • 3. To assemble, place a spoonful of meat and vegetable mixture on a warmed tortilla and top with avocado, salsa and sour cream. Roll tortilla around filling.

    These were SO easy and tasty! I prefer mildly spiced foods and this was perfect for me. My husband likes it a bit hotter so he topped his fajitas with some chipotle pepper powder.

    My family loved these fajitas! The marinade is delicious, and I served the fajitas with homemade pico de gallo. Instead of pan-frying the steak and veggies, I used a grill plate. I'll be making this recipe again soon!

    These were very good. I just fried the beef and served with sweet onion and red pepper and all the fixings. Sliced cheese as well. Yummy

    Very tasty! Next time I will include the avacados; I'm sure they will be even better.

    These Were Very Good! I Would Recommend Them To Anyone.

    ForThose Saying It's Not "Mexican", you Clearly HaveNoIdea About The History Of Fajitas

    Fajita Is Simply A Term For Strips Of Meat Grilled And Served On A Corn Or Flour Tortilla. There Is No Right Or Wing Way. And It's Not Mexican - It's Tex-Mex. Get With The Program.
