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.

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

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds skirt, flank, sirloin, or hanger steak sliced into 1/2 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 1/3 of the marinade over steak, 1/3 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.

  1. We have a mexican resturant here in DeSoto Mo. Koyal’s. They make a Steak Jalisto. It has mushrooms and a thin cheese sauce. It is similar to this one. Have to try it.

  2. I tried this recipe, and it was very good! Thank you for posting it.

    I added cilantro to the veggies (and a few mushrooms I had on hand. I did not save any marinade– there wasn’t really enough.

    The only change I’ll make next time I make it is to add more salt.

  3. I had all the ingredients on hand with the exception of the lime juice.   It turned out so good!   I love being able to prep the meat & veggies the night before and having dinner ready in minutes the following day.  And, did I mention that it was really good?  😉  Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  4. I don’t care for fajitas, but this recipe is the best and easiest!  My hubby smokes this in a black iron pan on the charcoal grill.  But we did not like the hanger steak…way too tough!
    And leftovers are great!  🤤👍🏻

  5. There is no ther liquid but the oil and lime juice. How is that supposed to cover all the ingredients and have left over marinade 

    1. This is my concern too. I just threw it in the fridge now but it really doesn’t feel like enough marinade at all. I didn’t even leave any reserve marinade because I felt like it needed to be mor won the meat and veggies. None left over. 

    2. I am searching for what I missed as there is nowhere near enough in my bowl. How is that supposed to be divided into thirds. It would only be about 2 tablespoons. 

      1. Very good recipe! The only change I made was to double up the marinade I felt like there wasn’t enough & I did save a bit to brush over the meat. My husband absolutely loved it. We cooked this on the grill it definitely will be our go to fajita marinade. I already had meat thawed when I seen it was recommended to marinade over night i had enough time to marinade 5 hours & it was so flavorful & fabulous!

  6. Made these tonight.  They were awesome!!! Love that this is delicious and healthy.  Will definitely make again.  

  7. I am a find whatever in the fridge cook but this recipe really rocks I had flank steak when I rushed to marinated every in 1 hour every one at home loved it thank you so much, will keep you in my phone for future recipes good job🍽️

  8. I fixed it last week and enjoyed it so much I wanted to make it again. . . .I couldn’t find your recipe and used another (I was very disappointed in the second recipe). So glad I found yours again! Needless to say I have saved it for future use!

  9. Good recipe and good flavor. When I make it again, I will double the amount of veggies. also found the marinade was stretched pretty thin, I would double that next time as well.

  10. OMG, delicious! I agree with others that there isn’t enough marinade so I doubled it and added a little more olive oil. Definitely will be making this again.

  11. Made the “single man” version today by cutting the recipe in half and making a few minor changes. First, I increased the veggies because I like peppers/onions. The marinade amount didn’t look to be near enough, so I doubled it and used half for the veggies and the other half for the steak (used skirt steak). After the overnight chill, I put my trusty cast iron to work. YUMMY! This was my first attempt at fajitas and I’m glad I chose your recipe. It is now bookmarked and will use it again.
