Luscious Low Carb Tender Beef Fajita Bowl

"I love it when I discover a new low carb, South Beach way-of-life recipe, and this was one is yummo! I found this on another site, and then modified it slightly. I found that the finished product was fork-tender, flavorful, and even better without the tortillas! Since the steak is so tender and tasty in this dish, I do recommend going with a sirloin or higher-end steak, rather than an inexpensive steak - it is well worth it in this dish! A fabulous one pan-meal made in around 30 minutes - what more could you ask for??!! :-)"

  1. YUM! We really loved this recipe. It was delicious and so simple to prepare - especially if you slice the steak and chop veggies earlier in the day! Great fajita flavor. I loved the fact that it was a low carb dinner for me and I could easily throw in some tortillas for my DH & kids. I agree with Helping Hands, definitely go for sirloin or better cut of meat. To make sure the steak is served tender, cut across the grain and then, as Helping Hands suggests, cook until rare/medium rare. Other notes: I added 1 T. olive oil to my pan, in addition to the butter. I used a little less than recommended amts. of chili powder and cayenne. Definitely serve with the optional items..yum yum yum! We will be making this recipe again, for sure. :-) *Made for My 3 Chefs 2007*


2007 I thought that I would edit my home page...its been over two years, so I its time to update! I have lived in beautiful New Mexico for the last few years (Albuquerque), after 20 years of living on the West Coast (San Francisco and Seattle). I love many things about New Mexico - the perfect weather, in particular; the sunsets; the open land; and the great Southwest food - but also sometimes miss the energy of bigger cities. I am a mental health therapist, who loves my work! I love to cook (a passion that I discovered after getting married). Rather than cooking a few favorites on a regular basis, I prefer to collect recipes (primarily from the Internet), and try new things often (in fact, my husband jokes that he will try a new dish that he loves and then never see it again :-)). I also love to read, write, travel, work on personal growth, and study/learn. I am a total water baby, who lives in the desert, so I love traveling to tropical locations, where I especially love to snorkle and boggie board! I am very happily married to my best friend, soulmate, partner, and greatest cheerleader and supporter, and we have three grown children, and four grandchildren (so far :-))I am a total foodie (I "live to eat" instead of "eat to live.") :-) I love everything about; the delicious scents of a yummy dish, as it cooks; the beautiful presentation of wonderful food; dining out; dining in; the taste of great food; sitting around the table, with friends and family, eating, talking and laughing; nurturing those I love by cooking for them...all of the senusal pleasures that food brings! My favorite Internet site for yummy recipes is this one - and I almost always choose recipes with five-star ratings, so please keep on reviewing! :-)
