Steak Fajitas is an easy recipe for busy weeknights using my favorite skirt steak, onions and peppers, Served with tortillas, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa.
Steak Fajitas are a fun and delicious meal that your family will love. It’s an easy and quick meal too for busy nights. You can use chicken as well, which is how I usually prepare this recipe.
But my family and I are big fans of steak which is how I made this recipe a few weeks ago and it was amazing.
There is no real recipe for this dish. It started out with my family wanting fajitas one night last summer and our grill was refusing to work so I moved everything inside and grabbed my wonderful Le Creuset pan and made the most delicious fajitas ever that I hardly ever grill the meat or vegetables any longer.
In fact I made this recipe all winter long switching back and forth between chicken and 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 cut up before you start cooking because this is a fast recipe!
- Always serve with fresh salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
