Grilled Steak Fajitas

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
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 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 chiles
  • 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


  • In a shallow dish, add beef. In another shallow dish, add the onion and green pepper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chiles, 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.
  • 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 thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
  • Meanwhile, cut 2 pieces of heavy-duty foil into 18x12-in. rectangles. Wrap tortillas in 1 piece and vegetables in the other; seal foil tightly. Grill, covered, over indirect heat for 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • 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.

    Sooo delicious! Every year I look forward to fresh peppers and onions from the garden to use in this recipe, which I've been making for years.

    The single best Steak Fajita recipe I have ever tried! Substituted Skirt Steak instead of Flank Steak and I buy it at Whole Foods, so much less fat and much better flavor than others I've tried.
