Hey friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

Have you felt a little busier, a little more rushed and even a little too hot to spend a long time in the kitchen every evening making supper? Well, me too! Since Sam’s started back to school, I’ve been finishing up some things for my cookbook, and Bart’s been busy at work…so we’ve been burning candles at both ends!

So I just knew this Steak Fajita Recipe would be just the dish for time-crunched suppers! It is easy and delicious and is a life-saver on rushed nights like we all have from time to time! My Chicken Fajitas are another family favorite meal for times like this. Both are just as perfect on the weekends to serve family and friends for a casual meal everyone enjoys.

I like to take this amazing steak fajitas recipe even a little further in the time-saving and easy-peasy department. I like to prep it the night before when I know I’m going to serve it the next day.

How to Make Steak Fajitas with Meal Prep Tips:

My steak fajitas recipe is perfect for easy meal prep to make weeknight meals even easier!

To meal prep my steak fajitas, I slice my peppers and onion and make my marinade.

Then, I place the veggies in one bag, the steak in another bag, add this tasty marinade to each bag, then zip it all up tight and give it a shake.

Next, I put it all in the fridge to marinate in these delicious spices overnight!

It’s ready in minutes when I cook it for supper the next evening.

Can’t beat that for quick and easy!

Steak Fajitas Recipe – Steak fajitas make a quick and easy meal perfect for weeknight suppers or weekend celebrations! Made with beef, peppers, onions and served with a stack of warm tortillas and condiments. They are always a favorite!

Ingredients  

  • 2 pounds skirt, flank, sirloin, or hanger steak sliced into ½ inch strips
  • 1 red pepper deseeded and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 green or yellow pepper deseeded and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 medium onion peeled and sliced into thin strips
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 6-8 tortillas warmed

Optional garnish:

Instructions 

  • Place the steak into a sealable bag. Place the peppers and onion into a separate sealable bag. Add the olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, ground cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, and garlic to a jar with a screw top or tight fitting lid. Shake until well combined. Pour ⅓ of the marinade over steak, ⅓ of marinade over vegetables and reserve the remaining marinade in the jar for using when cooking the steak fajitas. Seal the bags tightly and refrigerate for one hour to overnight.
  • When ready to cook, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pour the vegetables into the skillet and cook until just tender crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the skillet to a plate and add steak strips to the same skillet. When the steak is cooked throughout (about 7-10 minutes), add vegetables back to the skillet along with the reserved marinade.
  • Serve with warm tortillas and desired optional garnishes.

    I made this just today! Most times I’m disappointed when I try a new recipe from one of the cooking sites. I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. It’s a keeper.

    1. Corinne, thank you. I’m so glad you loved this recipe. It is a favorite at our house.

    This turned out soooooo good!! I only had top sirloin. I doubled the marinade, except for the evoo. I only used 4 1/2 tblsp. I added oregano. Coriander, And used new Mexico and California chile powder. I also used the juice of 2 limes. My hubby loved it!!

  3. Awesome recipe!!! I did add a tish more salt and pepper and it was delicious!! The meat was really tender and flavorful!! I made some homemade guacamole!! Definitely will make again. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe😊

  4. My husband is a very poor eater. Very hard to make something he likes, but he was very complimentary with this recipe. Thank you for more than just a recipe!

    1. I’m thrilled to hear that your husband loved these fajitas, Loretta. This is a favorite of my husband, too.

  5. 5 stars
    It was Very Good and will sure make it again. My only suggestion is to double the
    marinate, which I did as I did not think there was quite enough.

    1. I’m so glad you liked these fajitas, Elbert. I have found this is the amount of marinade that my family and I like but you can always make more if you wish.

  6. 5 stars
    I tried the steak fajitas and it was delicious! My family and I really enjoyed it. It was quick and easy to make! First time eating it and surely not the last.

    1. I agree, Amanda. I love to let mine marinate overnight, too. Sometimes, when I am in a hurry, I will let them marinate a few hours before cooking, too.
