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.

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.

  1. I made this recipe in March and am making it again tonight for Cinco de Mayo 🙂 and only used 3/4 lb of sirloin which was very tender. This was for just 2 people. I used a red bell pepper and a green bell pepper and one medium sweet Maui onion. I think the flavors are wonderful. I am glad I made a full recipe of the marinade, I think if you are serving more people and using over 1 lb of meat you should triple the marinade recipe. And extra fresh squeezed limes. Anyway, it was super easy to prep and I marinated a few hours (not overnight). It’s a healthy and low carb meal as well. (Maybe not the flour tortillas but, OK.). Thank you so much this is a SAVE and it is better than restaurant quality. A true gem in my cookbook.

    1. Thank you so much, Julia. I’m thrilled this recipe is a favorite of yours.

  2. A perfect recipe for a flat griddle on the backyard gas BBQ. But I have to admit, I cheated, because I buy packages of frozen peppers and onions, and thaw them while in the marinade. Everyone sells the package’s of tri-pepper and onion nowadays (Birdseye, Trader Joe’s, Kroeger) and they have good prices when bell peppers are sometimes $$$, but you want them. It saves a step or two, and no-one would ever know. This version has great proportions of spices/flavor.

  3. This recipe is the best!! I followed Kelly’s recommendation and doubled it for the meat and the veggies. Absolutely the best. I grilled on a charcoal grill. Unbelievable. This is hands down the best fajitas Ive ever had!! Thanks!! I had to review it again because i forgot to give it 5 stars. But honestly, i give it 10 stars!! And this will be a staple in my house!!!

  4. Wow ! I made this last night and YUMMY !! My 16 year old son said we need to put this in our regular meal rotation! I said ” I AGREE”

  5. Is this enough marinade? Only 4 tablespoons of liquid (olive oil and lime juice) doesn’t seem especially when divided 3 ways.

    1. Cathy, I’ve found that amount of marinade is the right amount for me and my family. I hope you enjoy.

  6. This was a perfect marinaid. I doubled the recipe and used 1/2 on the veggies. I did not follow the instruction for the meat. I used meat rub and grilled petite sirlion, sliced it up and placed a deep baking sheet on the grill where I mixed and sauteed using the other half of the marinaid. Perfect amount of heat. My best ever.

  7. The family loved it! I heard lots of Mmmms as they gobbled it up. I used about 1 1/2 lbs of beef for this and it seemed about right.
