Steak Fajitas

Steak Fajitas (Recipe from: Elizabeth Weight)
Steak (Your choice; I like to use a thin cut of NY strip steak because its tender but it's more expensive; flank steak would be good too)
Seasoning for Steak: chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper
1 Onion
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 T. vegetable oil
Handful of Cilantro
1-2 limes (if they are big limes you probably only want one)
Toppings (tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, etc.)

  1. Season steak with generous amounts of freshly ground salt & pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder and cayenne pepper (easy on the cayenne pepper and chili powder unless you like spicy!).
  2. Cook steak until desired doneness. (I usually cook the steak whole then slice it into strips once it is cooked)
  3. Slice onion and pepper. I like to season my onions and peppers with some salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder too. Sauté onion and pepper in vegetable oil until onions are lightly golden brown.
  4. Chop about a handful of cilantro.
  5. Combine steak, onion, and red pepper in a serving dish. Juice 1-2 limes over mixture. Throw in desired amount of cilantro.
  6. Mix and serve in tortillas with toppings.
