Flank Steak in Fajita Marinade

"Found on-line at Land O Lakes. Marinating the beef simply seals in the great flavors, both spicy and cool, in these steak fajitas. This requires a 4 hour marinading time, not included in prep/cook time."

  • Heat gas grill to medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak onto grill. Grill, turning once, until desired doneness (10 to 12 minutes). Place onto cutting board; slice across grain into 1/4-inch slices.
  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in 8-inch skillet; add green pepper and onion. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisply tender (6 to 8 minutes).

    We really enjoyed this marinade. I used on a skirt steak. I would highly recommend 4 or more hours marination time. I will marinate longer next time. Great flavors. The meat was very juicy.

    Loved the lime flavor in this. We actually didn't eat the meat as fajitas, but it was good none the less! Marinated the meat for about 24 hours. Served with recipe #265313 and a mix of broccoli & corn for a nice evening meal. Thanks for posting this diner! Made for 123 Hits.

    This was good, especially the meat itself, but there was too much lime for us. We customarily -- and did -- marinate the veggies in the meat marinade for a few minutes before cooking, and that was uncalled for and a bad idea with this. We would reduce the lime in the marinade by about half and also caution future cooks not to cook the veggies in the marinade; that should produce a work of art. One more thing: the meat looked absolutely lovely coming off the barbecue!

<p>I am a stay at home mom of two children, although, both now are in college. I am a retired Occupational Therapist. I received my degree from the Ohio State University and am a huge fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes. <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=DEREK08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/DEREK08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><br /><br />I have so many cook books that it is hard to pick one as my favorite, but would say I have used the Betty Crocker Cookbook the most since getting married for basic recipes. <br />I love to cook and try new recipes, but prefer simple and quick recipes. I don't like to cook things that require going to specialized grocery stores. I subscribe to several cooking magazines, that usually, require everyday on-hand ingredients. <br /><br />I am not very fond of most seafood, but do enjoy lobster, grilled shrimp and chilean sea bass. I won't cook anything with rosemary or curry, as I really don't like either herbs' flavor. And now from trying recipes, I found that I don't like dijon mustard, but love vinegar and mustard, not sure why I don't like the taste of dijon mustard.</p> <p><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/ZWT3-Participation.gif border=0 alt=Photo /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/RecipeSwap2.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC1.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view?t=gumnuts.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/gumnuts.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Diner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><br /><br />Adopted banner: <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/ZWT4/gastronomic%20gauchos/GGneon-logo.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BBQlSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/ZaarStar-AMBanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CROCKPOTSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/bayhill/footballpool-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/AdoptATag2-2-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BreakfastanytimeSTCK.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/totmtaggame-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/stats.php?site=diner524 target=_top><img src=http://beta.easyhitcounters.com/counter/index.php?u=diner524&amp;s=blgrv border=0 alt=Website hspace=4 vspace=2 align=middle /></a> <br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/ target=_top>Free Counter</a> <br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=lazymecookathon.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/AMPageBanner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/captain.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view&curren;t=Samsbutton.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/Samsbutton.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
