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! Here’s how to meal prep my steak fajitas:

  • Slice peppers and onion and make the marinade.
  • Place the veggies in one zip-top bag and the steak in another. Add ⅓ of the marinade to each bag, seal it, and turn the bag to make sure that all of the ingredients are coated with the marinade.
  • Put it all in the refrigerator to marinate overnight. Refrigerate the remaining marinade.
  • It’s ready in minutes when I cook it for supper the next evening.

Now that is perfect for a quick and easy dinner!

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.

    Great recipe I use this every time I want to make Fajitas at my house for the weekend. I always have to double the recipe thank you.

      Delicious. I’ve added this to my sheet of go-to recipes. Because I can never let anything be, I doubled the marinade and cooked the skirt steak whole. But I don’t think there is anything else I’d adjust. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

  2. 5 stars
    Great recipe. This was easy to make and flavorful. Normally I have used a Mrs. Dash no salt mix, but with this recipe I can control the amount of sodium and use fresh ingredients and it tastes just as good if not better. I am saving this recipe to make again.

    1. I’m glad this recipe helps you control your salt intake, Kurt. I always love the flavor the fresh ingredients add to the fajitas, too. Thanks!

  3. Hi Robyn! Just making this marinade and it doesn’t seem like enough to do the steak, veg and then do the cooking. Almost seems like I should double it?

    1. Patti, I have found this is the amount of marinade that my family and I like but you can always make more if you wish. Hope you enjoy.

  4. I love this recipe and I am no longer looking for a good beef fajita recipe. The result is fantastic. Robin thank you.
