Fajitas are something we love to make at home. I made these with marinated flat iron steak I picked up at Sam’s.

Flat Iron Steak Fajitas

Ingredients:

2 – 3 lb flat iron steak
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, grated
the juice of 3 – 4 limes
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
1 medium red bell pepper
1 medium yellow bell pepper
1 medium green bell pepper
1 medium red onion, sliced

Directions:

Place flank steak in a casserole dish to marinate. Combine all spices in a small bowl and mix well. Sprinkle seasonings over both sides of the steak. Add lime juice, freshly chopped cilantro and grated garlic to steak in casserole dish.Turn meat over a few times in the dish until it’s well covered.

Cover steak in plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes – 2 hours. This is a very quick acting marinade because of the high acidity of the limes, so don’t let it go for too long.

When the steak has marinated, preheat grill or skillet. Grill over medium – high heat until desired doneness. I cooked mine to medium. After steak is done, let it rest 5 – 10 minutes before cutting. Be sure to cut across the grain and very thinly.

Either char whole peppers on grill and slice, or saute sliced peppers over medium heat in skillet. If charring, turn a few times until lightly charred on grill and slice. If sauteing, add sliced peppers to skillet and saute with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve fajitas with your favorite salsa, fresh guacamole and sour cream.
