Grilled Steak Fajitas

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min.

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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  1. In a shallow dish, add beef. In another shallow dish, add the onion and green pepper.
  2. 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.
  3. 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°).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
