Steak Fajitas

16 Mar

Well, after a WONDERFUL dinner of Signature Steaks we had a ton of leftovers. Our rib eyes were bigger than our stomachs, I guess. Anyway, we decided to make steak fajitas and they turned out delish! Ya gotta love a Mexican fiesta on a weekday night.

Steak Fajitas

Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Level: Easy
Servings: 4

1 large rib eye (or honestly, just enough cooked steak to feed 4 people, whatever the cut)
juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 fresh jalapeño, finely diced
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 onion

Slice steak, bell peppers, and onion thin.

Mix lime juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, and jalapeño together and pour over sliced steak.

Marinate at room temperature for 1 hour. Wipe off garlic and jalapeños before cooking if desired. Cook steak, peppers, and onions in a skillet over medium-high heat until peppers and onions are tender but still crisp. Yum!

Tips
– You can use chicken instead, or mix both!
– Serve in warm tortillas with cheese, sour cream, salsa, and other traditional fajita toppings.
– Squeeze a little lemon or lime juice over the top of the finished product for a fresh twist.
