Steak Fajitas with Lime

Recipe and reaction after the cut.Recipe based off of this one.

1 Large onion cut into thin slices

1 Large green bell pepper cut into slices

1.5 tbl olive oil

1.5 tbl balsamic vinagrette

Salt and cracked black pepper to taste

1 fresh lime, juiced

.75 lbs flank steak cut into medium chunks

3 flour tortillas

4oz Mexican shredded cheese blend

Sour Cream

Hot sauce and salsa as preferred

-Coat onion and pepper slices in oil, salt and pepper.  Cook on skillet until tender and toss with vinagrette and salt

-Mix lime juice with salt and remaining oil in a shallow dish.  Add steak and marinate for 10 minutes, turning pieces once

-Pat steak dry and rub with pepper

-Cook steak on skillet for 2 minutes per side or so for medium

-Heat tortillas in microwave 10-15 seconds on each side

So the local meat market had no skirt steak, so I improvised with some flank steak.  Texture is pretty similar, and with something like these fajitas, where you have a whole bunch of different flavors going on the texture of the meat is just as important.  To make up for the substitution, I bought all of my produce at a local farmer’s coop.  Hooray green living!

Everything turned out wonderfully for this meal, with the lime/oil marinade giving a perfect note of sweetness to offset the spicy salsa and hot sauces I used.  I ended up with three fully loaded fajitas, but I probably would have crammed 3 more into my mouth if I could have.  So tasty, and pretty easy to make if you don’t mind a bit of prep work.
