Ingredients

Marinade

  • 2 medium limes (zest and juice)
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 pounds top round steak
  • 2 large yellow onions (thinly sliced)
  • 3 large bell peppers (1-red, 1-orange, 1-green) (cut into 1/2-inch strips)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 fajita size tortillas
  • guacamole, salsa, shredded lettuce (to garnish)
  • optional shredded cheese and sour cream (to garnish)

Instructions

  • Mix the lime juice and zest, cayenne, chili powder, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.
  • Add the steak to the bowl, cover and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Slice the onions and bell peppers and place them in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil and set aside.
  • Heat and clean your grill. Spray a light coating of olive oil over the grates and place your marinated steak over high heat.
  • Cook for 2 minutes, then flip steaks over to the other side and cook for an additional 2 minutes depending on the thickness of your steaks.
  • Remove the steaks from the grill, place on a platter and cover with foil.
  • Place a large cast iron skillet on the grill and allow to heat up, we're going for scorching hot.
  • Add the onions and bell pepper and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until soft and tender.
  • Slice the steak against the grain into very thin strips. Add the steak to the hot pan with the bell pepper mixture and toss to combine.
  • Serve Grilled Steak Fajitas with tortillas, and topped with your choice of toppings - shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese.

Notes

  • Use flour tortillas for traditional fajitas, cassava flour tortillas for paleo, and lettuce leaves for whole 30.
  • Garnishes and Optional ingredients are not included in the Nutrition Facts.
