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.

How to Make Easy Steak Fajitas
Make sure you print out the recipe below and save it for later!
- 1 lb skirt steak
- 2 – 3 bell peppers of various colors
- 1 large yellow onion
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil divided
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 – 2 tbsp Worchestire sauce
Let’s Get Cooking!
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 tbsp 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.
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.
