Easy Steak Fajitas

Steak Fajitas

Intensely flavorful and spicy but not too hot, these steak fajitas are ready fast. I’ve got nothing against marinating the meat before cooking, but if you forget to marinate, like I did today, worry not – simply season the beef and the vegetables well, saute them quickly, and these steak fajitas will turn out just as delicious and flavorful as fajitas made with marinated steak.

Recipe type: Entree, Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, Primal/Paleo
Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
Seasoning mix:
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Fajitas:
  • 3 large bell peppers, cut into thin strips (21 oz)
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced (8 oz)
  • 1.5 lb. sirloin steak, cut into thin strips (I buy mine pre-cut)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the seasoning ingredients.
  2. Place the sliced vegetables in a large bowl. Sprinkle with half the seasoning mix. Use your clean hands to rub the spices into the vegetables.
  3. Place the steak slices in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with the remaining seasoning mix. Use your clean hands to rub the spices into the meat.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers and the onion. Cook, stirring often, until just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables to a plate.
  5. Add the steak slices to the same skillet. Stir-fry just until no longer raw, 2-3 minutes.
  6. Return the vegetables to the skillet. Stir-fry everything together 1-2 more minutes, just until heated through.
  7. Spoon the fajitas into warm tortillas, or skip the starch as I do and and serve the fajitas in bowls, drizzled with the yummy pan juices, and topped (if you wish) with salsa, guacamole, sour cream and/or shredded cheddar.
