Steak Fajitas

The classic sizzling fajita platter found in Mexican restaurants across the globe is a cinch to replicate in your own kitchen. Fajitas can be made with almost any protein, but my favorite is steak. For this dish, I used boneless New York strip steak, but other cuts like flank steak and skirt steak would work great as well.

Ingredients

For the steak

  • 2 boneless New York strip steaks, or flank steak, skirt steak, or similar cut
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

For the fajitas

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Black beans, for serving
  • Mexican rice, for serving
  • Avocado, sour cream, salsa, and tortillas, for serving

Directions

For the steak

Cover the steaks with all marinade ingredients in a large bowl or on a tray. Make sure ingredients are evenly distributed over the steaks. Let sit for 1 hour at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator. 

 

Bring a grill pan or outdoor grill to high heat. Pat steak dry and sprinkle liberally with salt. Place steaks on grill and leave untouched for 5 minutes. Flip once and continue to cook for 3 minutes for medium-rare. Remove steaks from heat and let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Slice diagonally into thin strips. 

For the fajitas

In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the onions to the pan and cook for 3 minutes before adding the bell peppers. Season with cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook until the peppers are slightly soft and the onions are cooked through, approximately 7-8 minutes. 

 

For serving, place the steak, peppers, onions, beans, rice, avocado, sour cream, salsa, and tortillas on a platter and assemble. Enjoy!
