Beef Fajitas With Pico De Gallo

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 5 mins

Sort of a semi-Asian approach to fajitas. Adapted from the Kikkoman website, but I use lite (lower sodium) versions of the soy & teriyaki sauces. They also spread butter on tortillas before adding meat & toppings; I omit the butter. Preparation time does not include 2 hours for the pico de gallo to set, covered, before using.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make pico de gallo: place avocado thru pepper in a bowl; stir in onion thru lime juice; let stand, covered, 2 hours.
  2. Combine soy sauce & lime juice; use to marinate meat 15 minutes, turning pieces over once.
  3. Broil or grill meat about 4 inches from heat source 3 minutes (for medium-rare) or to desired doneness.
  4. Warm tortillas in 325º oven.
  5. To assemble, top ½ each tortilla w/ meat, pico de gallo and sour cream.

These were excellent fajitas. The Pico de Gallo went together perfectly with the flavor of the meat. I made these as written with just a few minor changes for personal taste. I added an extra Tablespoon of cilantro to the Pico de Gallo, and I added 2 cloves minced garlic to the marinade. Also, I marinated the meat for 1 hour. I sauteed the meat in a cast iron skillet until almost done and then I added strips of red and green bell pepper and red onion. I served these with sour cream and my recipe#142062. My family loved these and gave them 2 thumbs up. Thank you for this fantastic is definitely a keeper!!
