How To Make Steak Fajitas

This homemade steak fajitas recipe can be broken down into a variety of parts that will all come together and is delicious! First, start by making the cilantro lime sauce and store in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

Now place all of your steak marinade ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine.

Pour the marinade over your steak in a shallow baking dish and let it sit for at least 30 minutes or store covered in the fridge overnight, if you have time.

What Type Of Steak Is Best For Fajitas

In this easy recipe we like using a flank steak, but it would also be good with a sirloin steak, hanger steak, or skirt steak. See what your local grocery store has available or what is in your price point.

Bring a large cast-iron skillet to a medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil, and then cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 130-135 degrees F (use a meat thermometer) for a medium-rare finish.

Next, grab a large chef’s knife and cutting board to cut the bell peppers and onions into thin strips.

Sauté the bell peppers and onions in a large skillet with some olive oil, garlic, and our own fajita seasoning for 10-15 minutes or until fork tender.

Gather all of your fajita ingredients and warm your tortillas to serve.

Assemble the steak fajitas any way you want!

What Toppings Are Best For Steak Fajitas

On our easy steak fajitas we topped them with our cilantro lime sauce, corn salsa, fresh cilantro, and lime wedges. However, they would also be great with sour cream, guacamole, sliced jalapeños, black beans, pico de gallo (or blender salsa), and a sprinkling of cheese. We love to have the options available and then everyone can top them the way they want!
