Steak fajitas are so simple to prepare, they barely need a recipe. They are a welcome meal any time of the year: at a summer barbecue or at a Christmas get-together. Impress your friends and family with this recipe.
Things You'll Need
- 1 1/2 lbs. thinly sliced cut flank steak (cut against the grain)
- 2 medium onions
- 1 tbsp. of olive oil
- 1 green pepper
- 1 habanero pepper (optional)
- Teriyaki sauce
- Black pepper
- 1 lemon or lime
- 1 package of soft fajita bread
Marinate the steak strips for about an hour.
Clean and cut the veggies while the steak is marinating. Cut, or julienne, the veggies in long strips from top to bottom.
Place all of the ingredients except the lemon in a hot skillet and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Sauté on high heat.
Add a little teriyaki sauce for flavor while the ingredients are cooking.
Sprinkle fresh black pepper, to taste, over the cooking mixture.
Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon over the mixture, after you remove it from the skillet.
Spoon some of the mixture on warm fajita bread. Fold the fajita bread and enjoy.
