Ingredients
 

  • 1 pound skirt or flank steak
  • 1 sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 sliced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 sliced onion

Fajita Seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon oil for marinade

Instructions
 

  • Mix together fajita seasoning in a bowl without the oil. Take out about 1/2 teaspoon of dry seasoning for vegetables. Combine the rest into the 2 tablespoon of oil for the marinade. Quick tip, these measurements are for 1lb of meat. If using more meat make more seasoning.
  • Cover the steak or chicken in the marinade then cover. Overnight is great but 15 minutes will do. When using chicken be sure to use thin chicken.
  • Slice up both bell peppers and onions for cooking. When meat is done marinating start the cooking process.
  • In a cast iron skillet heat to medium/high heat. Add a little oil for cooking them toss in all vegetables. Add saved fajita seasoning to the vegetables and cook until they are tender.
  • After vegetables are done remove them from pan. Turn heat to high and cook and sear the marinated steak until your ideal done temperature. If using chicken, make sure chicken is thin and don't turn up the heat to cook it.
  • At this point you are finished and reasy to serve.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Sauté veggies first, I have done this a few times and this is the best method. You can do it in reverse but those dark bits that fall off the steak while searing will be all over your vegetables. It's not a hard rule but something to note.
  • Slicing steak, be sure when using skirt or flank steak you cut against the grain. Otherwise, the steak tenders will be very tough and chewy due to you not cutting against them. How to cut against the grain? Think of a "x" or cross. Look for the lines in the meat and go in the opposite direction when cutting.
