Chili Lime Steak Fajitas
Cook Tools and Details
- Whisk marinade ingredients together to combine. Pour 2/3's of the marinade into a shallow dish to marinate the steak for about 10 minutes at room temperature while preparing the other ingredients. Set aside remaining marinade for vegetables
- Heat about one teaspoon of oil in a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and grill steak on each side until desired doneness (about 4 minutes each side for medium-rare, depending on thickness). Set aside and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
- Wipe pan or grill plates over with a paper towel, drizzle (or brush) with another teaspoon of oil and fry peppers and onion strips. Add half of the reserved marinade, salt and pepper; continue cooking until vegetables are ready.
- To serve steak, slice against the grain into thin strips. Pack into warmed tortillas (or lettuce for low-carb), cilantro leaves, sour cream, sliced avocado or other toppings you like, and drizzle over the remaining marinade.

Steak: Cover the dish and put it in the microwave. Cook it on a medium heat (max heat will dry out your steak in no time) for 30-second periods, turning the steak in between. You should only need to do this a few times for the perfect result. Deliciously tender. Vegtables: Spread food out in an even layer, cover with a damp paper towel to help create some steam while the food is heating so it doesn't dry out, and stir every so often to promote even heating, as there are usually hot spots even in microwaves with turntables.
