Great fajitas! Marinated the meat overnight and it was really flavorful and tender. The only change I made was to use a large piece of sirloin steak as flank steak is not readily available (not sure why) and I didn't want to use skirt steak. Served with grilled onions/peppers, avocado, lime crema and cheese. Served alongside Mexican rice and corn on the cob. Great dinner. Made for PRMR, May, 2014.
- 1 beef flank steak (about 1 pound)
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
- 1⁄4 cup canola oil
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon lime peel, grated
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1 green peppers, sweet red pepper or 1 yellow pepper, julienned
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 8 flour tortillas, warmed (8 inches)
- sour cream and lime wedge (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first nine ingredients; add steak. Seal bag; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
- Drain and discard marinade. Grill over high heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
- Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute onion and peppers if desired in oil for 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Slice meat into thin strips across the grain; place on tortillas. Top with vegetables; roll up. Serve with sour cream and lime wedges if desired.
