Cooking Light Beef Fajitas

"I made these last night and they are WONDERFUL!! I went to the Weight Watchers website and I figured these as 6 points per serving (Serves 4 - two fajitas each). This does not include, cheese, sour cream or any sides."

  • To prepare marinade, combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.
  • To prepare fajitas, trim fat from steak and cut against the grain into strips. Combine 1 1/2 cups marinade and steak in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • Combine remaining marinade, bell peppers, and onion in a zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • Prepare grill.
  • Remove steak from bag; discard marinade.
  • Remove vegetables from bag; reserve marinade. Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan; set aside.
  • Place steak and vegetables on skewers (soak them in water for a bit so they do not burn)cook until desired degree of doneness.
  • Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until soft.
  • Bring reserved marinade to a boil.
  • Take the steak and vegetables off the skewers and onto a serving platter; drizzle with reserved marinade.
  • Serve the meat and veggies with the flour tortillas and let people make their own fajitas. Pass chopped cilantro.

    I served this with a Mexican pasta salad and it was easy and so good. Did everything on the grill. Whole piece of steak ands cut after it rested.

    Really good, despite cutting down the marinating time. Too cold to grill, so I cooked this in a skillet. I will make again and next time, I will plan ahead!

    We really enjoyed these. I grilled them as posted. The veggies are on the chunky side so I just cut them down a bit. This makes a lot. I cut the recipe in half and it made enough for 4 people because trying to eat two of these fajitas is just too much. I used the leftover marinade to baste the food while it was grilling. Served a droplet of sour cream and some salsa on top and it was good to go. Served recipe #304459 as a side dish. Made for Spring PAC 2010. Thanks for posting. :)

    I will definitely make these again. I added some lime juice to the marinade and cooked the meat and veggies in a skillet, but they were still delicious.
