Steak Fajitaswith peppers and red onions
Bring home the flavors of Tex-Mex without having to go out. This dish is easy to make. Try to season your steak for 24 hours for extra flavor
- Skirt / flank / hangar steak - 1 lb
- Garlic - 2 cloves, minced
- Red pepper - 1, sliced
- Green pepper - 1, sliced
- Red onion - 1, sliced
- Coriander - 1/2 Tbsp ((coriander is ground cilantro seed!))
- Cumin - 1/2 Tbsp
- Garlic powder - 1/2 Tbsp
- Cayenne pepper - pinch
- Kosher salt - 1/2 tsp
- Cooking oil - 4 Tbsp
- Grape tomatoes - 1 cup, halved
- Tortillas - 8
- Limes - 1, sliced
- Sour cream (opt) - 1/2 cup
- Cilantro - a few sprigs, chopped
- Preheat oven to 400F (204C) degrees
- Mix coriander, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and half the oil. Use half of marinade to cover steak pieces. Toss the other half with the chopped peppers and onions
- Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbs. (15 ml) oil. To heated oil, add as many steak pieces as can fit into the pan. Sear for 2 minutes on each side. Set seared pieces aside onto a baking sheet. When all the steak is seared, add tomatoes to pan, and bake in oven for an addition 6 to 12 minutes, depending on how you like our steak
- Wipe skillet clean and return to medium-high heat. Add remaining tbs. (15 ml) of oil and then minced garlic to heated oil. Add sliced peppers and onions with a dash of salt. Sauté until softened, ~5 minutes. Add a squeeze of lime and season to taste with salt or the spices
- Warm tortillas according to package instructions
- After steak is done, let rest for 5 minutes and slice against the grain (perpendicular to the natural lines in the steak). Serve fajitas with your tasty fillings, warmed tortillas, sliced limes, sour cream, and cilantro
- Head start: Season & tenderize your chicken for tomorrow

Very tasty! Would definitely make again! Like the other suggested, double the spices/oil on everything.
My hubbie made this tonight! The flavors were so yummy!
Pretty good! I just cooked the meat and veggies in the spices rather than marinating.
Yum!! Next time I'll add avocados
I also made guacamole to go with it...
Great recipe - horrible instructions. Somehow I made it come out OK.
