Leftover Steak Fajitas
My family and I are big fans of steak, and for some strange reason I had leftover steak recently and decided to do something different with the leftovers. This recipe was inspired because of the leftover steak, but don't worry, you don't need leftover steak!
Tips for Making Steak Fajitas
- You can use chicken or beef. You can even make them vegetarian and add more vegetables.
- The cut of beef you use is important. I always use skirt steak in this recipe. It's a more tender cut of meat and when sliced thin will cook up in no time.
- Try to have everything prepped before you start cooking because this is a fast recipe!
- Always serve with homemade salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
Here is the original photo from quite a few years when this recipe was first posted. For some reason, people LOVE this photo on Facebook.
But I thought it was time to do a new one and update the post with a printable recipe card.
This is an overview of the ingredients and instructions. Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact quantities, detailed instructions and special notes.
- 1 lb skirt steak
- Peppers of various colors
- Yellow onion
- Taco seasoning
- Vegetable oil
- Worchestire sauce
Slice all the peppers into the same size and width to help them cook fast and evenly.
Slice the skirt steak thin and add it to a bowl. Toss well with the taco seasoning.
Cook the meat in 2 tablespoon of oil. You can see that the meat gives off quite a bit of water while cooking. Don't worry, that will all cook out.
When the beef is about done, remove to a plate and keep warm while you cook the peppers and onions.
How to Cook the Veggies
Add the remaining oil and then add the onions and peppers. Saute them until they reach the tenderness you desire. You can also sprinkle a little more taco seasoning on top of the peppers and onions.
Add the steak back to the pan and sprinkle with a few shakes of Worcheshire sauce and continue cooking until the meat is completely cooked through and everything has blended together.
Now comes the fun part! Serving and eating the steak fajitas.
Serve with grated cheddar cheese, and sour cream, homemade salsa and warm flour tortillas. Homemade guacamole is always a nice addition to add to the top as well.

I see steak fajitas in my near future...but I've never heard of skirt steak? I actually do make fajitas almost exactly this way. I've always used a bottled sauce but next time I will try Worchestire + taco seasoning!
