The other night I made beef fajitas. I had defrosted steak tips. I've never had anything called "steak tips" before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Given the shape of the meat pieces, simple cooking it like a steak was out. I went the strip route and decided on fajitas.

Beef Fajitas

  • 1/2 lb steak tips cut into strips,
  • Marinade made of olive oil, lime juice, cumin, chipotle, garlic, and cilantro,
  • 1 onion sliced (in the direction for wedges not rounds)
  • 1/3 bag colored peppers from Trader Joe's (or two bell peppers sliced)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped & splash of lime juice
  • Tortillas
Marinade the meat for a few hours. Then in a hot pan with a bit of oil, quickly cook the meat until done, about 3 min. Removed the meat and cook the onions and peppers with the garlic and splash of lime. Cook for about 3 min.

Place the meat and veggies on a tortilla. Top with your favorite toppings.

  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • chopped lettuce
  • chopped tomato
  • sliced black olives
  • minced cilantro
  • sour cream
  • guacamole
  • salsa
We made 6 fajitas that were way too full. This likely should have made 8 or so. They were a favorite of the husband. I'll definitely make them again.
