Pressure Cooker Steak Fajitas
I've enjoyed cooking since I was a girl growing up in the Southwest, and I think fajitas are an easy way to add some wallop to ho-hum dinner lineups. This simply delicious main dish is an excellent option if you're looking for something new to serve. —Janie Reitz, Rochester, Minnesota
