Beef Fajitas


Hello All!  Welcome to Food ~ Flavor ~ Fun!

A place to find and share some great food ideas that are loaded with flavor for you to prepare and share with family and friends to bring a lot of good times and enjoyable meals together.  These recipes are for real people…no need to be a great gourmet chef.  I’ve fixed all of these myself at home for my family.  Give it a try!

Thursday’s are all about the main course.  Tonight is another one of my favorite meals:  Beef Fajitas.  I’ve found it difficult to get the flavor from other recipes to come close to restaurant fajitas.  This recipe comes really close to some of the very good fajitas that I’ve had and its very calorie friendly.

Beef Fajitas


  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pound of skirt steak, trimmed of all visible fat and cut cross grain (makes a huge difference in the tenderness of the meat)
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup salsa


Combine the lime juice, garlic and cumin in a zip-close plastic bag.  Add the steak.  Squeeze out the air and seal the bag.   Turn to coat the steak.  Refrigerate, turning the bag over occasionally for at least 30 minutes.  Drain and discard the marinade.

Add a little olive oil to a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat.  When hot, add the onion, red and green bell pepper and the jalapeno pepper.  Cook, stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes.  Drain excess fluid that has come out of the vegetables.  Add the steak and cook until lightly brown but still pink in the middle, 3-4 minutes.  Add the Soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder, stir and cook 1 more minute and remove from heat.

Warm the tortillas according to the package directions and serve the fajitas at once with the sour cream and salsa.  I usually add a little guacamole too.  Enjoy!
