Grilled Steak Fajitas

To get the most delicious flavor from these steak fajitas, you should marinate the steak for at least 6 hours.  Overnight is an even better idea!

Servings: 12
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 pounds sirloin steak or flank steak, trimmed of all fat
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 3 bell peppers, 1 pound total -- 1 red, 1 yellow, and 1 green, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 1 large red onion, 12 ounces, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 7-inch fat-free flour tortillas, warmed according to package directions
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a shallow dish. Place the steak in the marinade, cover, and refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours, turning steak twice.
  2. Start the grill or preheat the broiler.
  3. Remove the steak from the marinade and grill or broil for 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steaks to a carving board and let stand for 10 minutes.
  4. While steak is standing, lightly coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add the peppers, onion, and garlic, stirring until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
  5. Slice the steak very thin across the grain  (It's very important that you do slice them across the grain and very thin; this will help them cook better.) Arrange the steak slices and pepper-onion mixture on a large heated serving platter, with rolled up warm tortillas alongside.
  6. Serve immediately.
