From Taste of Home Magazine My family likes garlic, so I dreamed up this delicious marinade for our summer fajita dinners. The marinade only needs 8 hours to work its magic, but it’s even better left overnight. Try it on chicken breasts, too.—Karyn "Kiki" Power, Arlington, Texas

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the broth, lime juice, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, 1 teaspoon soup mix, mustard, pepper, cayenne and Liquid Smoke if desired. Add the steaks; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. In a large bowl, combine onions, green pepper, yellow pepper and remaining oil and soup mix. Place half of mixture on each of two double thicknesses of heavy-duty foil (about 12 inches square). Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly.
  3. Drain beef and discard marinade. Grill steaks and vegetable packets, covered, over medium heat for 10-13 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°) and vegetables are tender, turning steaks once.
  4. Open foil packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Thinly slice steaks; place beef and vegetables on tortillas. Serve with salsa, cheese, guacamole and sour cream if desired.
  5. Time does not include marinating time.
