Chili Lime Steak Fajitas

Chili Lime Steak Fajitas are so juicy and full of incredible flavors! The secret lies in this incredibly popular and easy to make marinade!

INGREDIENTS:

MARINADE:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic , crushed
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon red chili flakes 
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1 pound (500 g) steak (rump, skirt or flank steak); cut into strips against the grain


FAJITAS:
  • 2 bell peppers, red and green sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 avocado sliced (optional)

Love these Wüsthof knives; they are an investment!

OPTIONAL SERVING SUGGESTION:

  • flour tortillas (optional) (which is what I used this time around)
  • Lettuce leaves for low carb option
  • Extra cilantro leaves to garnish
  • Sour cream (optional) to serve

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Whisk marinade ingredients together to combine. Pour out half of the marinade into a shallow dish to marinade the steak for 30 minutes. Alternatively, refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minute prior to cooking.
    *Refrigerate the reserved untouched marinade to use later*

FOR SKILLET:

  • Heat about one teaspoon of oil in a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and grill steak on each side until desired doneness (about 4 minutes each side for medium-rare, depending on thickness). Set aside and allow to rest for 5 minutes. 

FOR VEGETABLES:

  • Wipe pan or grill plates over with paper towel; drizzle (or brush) with another teaspoon of oil and fry peppers and onion strips. Add half of the reserved marinade, salt and pepper; continue cooking until done.

ASSEMBLE:

  • To serve pack into warmed tortillas, extra cilantro leaves, sour cream, sliced avocado (or your desired fillings). Make it your own – it is your ‘TACO TUESDAY’ after all.

Enjoy – see you in the Kitchen!
