Steak Fajita Recipe

Skirt Steak served with onions and colorful bell pepper strips and the traditional flour tortillas for the best sizzling dinner in minutes! 


A fajita in Tex-Mex and Mexican cuisine is any grilled meat that is usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish.





What you need to make Fajitas

  • Meat -  Flank steak or skirt steak is the best beef cut for fajitas. The most important thing you can do when making fajitas is marinating properly.

  • Onion - Large onion, thinly sliced
  • Seasonings - All seasonings can be modified to taste. Chile powder and cayenne pepper can be reduced or increased to taste.
