Grilled Steak Fajitas




I love Mexican food. And in all honesty, the chips and queso dip might just be my weakness. However, I try not to succumb to that particular weakness often considering there really is no nutritional value that does me any good when I stuff my face with chips and queso. And when I say stuff my face - I really mean it. There is no limit when it is in front of me. It is out of control. So I was craving Mexican food tonight, particularly steak the fajitas. I remembered that in the freezer there was a perfect pack of beef fajita meat waiting on me to cook. With only about 30 minutes of my time from start to finish (yes that includes all the chopping, dicing, mixing....and even making guacamole) I must say that I will make this again and again. It was also delicious, healthy, and cured my craving. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 lb. beef strips (I used 5280Meat beef fajita meat)
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon Flavor God everything seasoning (or seasoning of choice)
1 tablespoon ghee butter (or regular butter or olive oil)
½ onion, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, stemmed & thinly sliced
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic

Method

1. Stir together cumin, ground pepper, and seasoning in a small bowl.

2. Coat each steak strip with seasoning.

3. Heat a skillet on the stovetop over medium to medium high heat and add ghee butter until melted.

4. Cook steak strips in skillet for about 4 minutes , turning each strip once to cook on both sides (cook 2-3 minutes on each side).

5. Remove all steak strips from skillet and cover with foil on a serving dish.

6. Add peppers and onion to skillet and sauté until soft, stirring occasionally, for about 8-10 minutes.

7. Add garlic & lime juice to onion/pepper mixture in skillet and stir together.

8. To assemble fajitas, place steak strips and onion/pepper mixture in a whole wheat flour tortilla and serve with desired toppings, such as homemade guacamole, chopped cilantro, sour cream, and/or chopped tomatoes.

* My homemade guacamole recipe can be found by clicking HERE. I omitted the diced onion in the recipe since I cooked onions and peppers for the fajitas.

* You can also cook the beef strips on the grill :)
