steak fajitas

SizzlingSteakFajitas_LWe had some of our best friends, Andrea and Cody, over for dinner over the weekend. It was just so great to hang out and catch up! It never fails- we always end up laughing so extremely hard and telling the funniest stories together! It really is the best time.

We made steak fajitas for dinner! I found this recipe on, which I resource a lot. I am a huge fan of trying new recipes- even of things I have eaten before. I love trying someone else’s take on a recipe.

This recipe for these steak fajitas is extremely easy and took me no time at all to put together. I was able to make a batch of brownies while getting everything else ready- it was that simple.

So try it out if you’re looking for something yummy and easy. We loved it and Andrea and Cody seemed to like it too!


– 1 pound lean steak, cut into strips
– 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
– 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
– 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
– 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
– 1 large onion, cut into thin strips
– 1 julienned green bell pepper
– 2 lemons, quartered
– salt and pepper to taste
– 6 (12 inch) flour tortillas

1. Combine the lime juice, ground pepper and cilantro in a shallow dish. Place steak strips into the marinade and refrigerate for two to four hours.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak strips, and fry until cooked to your liking. Remove meat and set aside.

3. Add remaining oil and onions to the skillet. Cook over medium low heat, until translucent, stir in green peppers and steak. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the top and stir. When the green bell peppers are just tender remove the pan from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the steak fajitas with tortillas and lemon wedges on the side.

… fabulous… I served it with brownies for dessert!

    Do you remember what kind of steak you used?

      Yes- I used steak that was pre-cut specifically for fajitas. In the meat section (obvious) and it was already cut in strips. It was labeled simply as ‘fajita steak’. I liked it because I didn’t have to cut it up or anything. It was in the same section as the prepacked veggies that are specifically for fajitas. Does this make sense? lol It wasn’t frozen or anything- it was with all the fresh meat.

    I tried these last night – very good!! I didn’t have any cilantro but I threw in some garlic in the marinade. Yummy!
