Steak Fajitas

This is our go-to recipe for a simple but delicious (and quick) Mexican meal. We often use what is on hand and omit whatever isn’t so we don’t have to make a store run. The recipe is very flexible and we let everyone make their own.


  • 1 lb flat iron steak


  • 2 T olive oil
  • Juice of 1 fresh lime (1-2 T)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 t chili powder
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 1/2 t hot pepper flakes
  • 1/2 t ground black pepper
  • 1/2 t salt
  • dash Worcestershire
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1/2 large white onion, sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, slice
  • 1 T Worcestershire
  • 1/2 t garlic salt


  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Diced jalepenos
  • Avocado, sliced or guacamole
  • Chopped cilantro

Marinate steak for at least 1 hour (or up to 8 hours). Leave whole for grilling.

Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, peppers and Worcestershire sauce and stir until softened. Sprinkle on garlic salt when they get soft.

Grill meat on high heat for a few minutes on each side… you are shooting for medium rare (we lean even more rare). When done, set on cutting board to rest for 5-10 minutes, then slice along the grain.

Pro tip: make a little 50-50 mixture of sugar and kosher salt (maybe a tablespoon) and sprinkle on meat before grilling to get awesome caramelization and grill marks.

Assemble all the goodies together on warm tortillas and enjoy.
