How to make steak fajitas
When you make this recipe start start with the steak fajitas marinade. This might be the easiest marinade in the world.
Put the following ingredients in a bowl:
- Olive oil
- Sweet soy sauce – I use dark soy but you can also use light soy sauce
- Chili flakes
Combine the ingredient before you add one tablespoon of chili powder seasoning, preferably homemade and stir through thoroughly.
Put the meat into a plastic ziplock bag and pour the marinade in the bag. Zip is closed make sure you cover the meat before you put it into the fridge.
Then leave it in the fridge for at least 3 hours (more if possible) and turn the bag mid way through the marinading time. When you pan fry the beef keep the marinade you will need it later on.
Heat a cast iron skillet with olive oil until really and pan fry the beef for 3 minutes per side. Turn the steak and pan fry for another 3 minutes. Do not move the steak around let it sit in the pan.
Take some aluminum foil, wrap the steak in the foil and set it aside. Let the beef relax for at least 10 minutes before you cut it into small strips and serve.
Preheat the oven at 400℉/200℃. Wrap 6 soft fajitas tortillas in some thin foil and let them warm for 10 minutes.
At the same time reheat the cast iron skillet (do not wash it yet) and add some oil. Put all of the bell peppers in the pan and let them go soft. Then add the onion and stir through the pan.
When all the vegetables are soft, add the remaining marinade to the skillet and let it simmer for a few minutes.
Serve by adding some bell peppers and onion to a fajita tortilla. Then take strips of beef and put it on top of the vegetables.
If you like you can add some homemade roasted tomato salsa on it and eat it with rice. That is how you make this easy steak fajita recipe.
