YUM! I made this tonight - although I pre-sliced the meat and didn't marinate it (didn't read all of the instructions - oops!), I used the rest of the ingredients. I DID substitute pita bread for the fajitas, and everything was just delicioso!

Awesome! I made these while camping. After the steak thawed slightly, I sliced it and threw it in a ziplock to marinate an hour more in the cooler. I used a mixture of red onion, red, green and orange peppers that I previously sliced. This meal came together in about 20 minutes on the camp stove! This will be in regular rotation on our camping trips. Thanks Tish!-

As my husband said, this is a keeper. Easy to prep ahead with the "bonus packs" of meat from the grocery for 2-3 meals. I used cumin instead of oregano. We don't care for pepper/frozen veggies and substituted 2 onions. I would recommend trimming any fat from the steak before you freeze it, but put a little in the ziplock in case you want to use it for "flavor" when pan searing. Excellent and easy recipe. Thanks!
