What’s for dinner tonight? These Steak Fajitas are a tasty weeknight dinner recipe that you can have on the table and ready in under an hour.
What do you have planned for dinner tonight? These Steak Fajitas are a tasty weeknight dinner recipe that you can have on the table and ready in under an hour….you do have to plan a little bit ahead with these and marinate the meat (and veggies…if desired) for best results. But other than that, these are fast and easy and loved by the whole family!
My boys really LOVE these. They like Steak and so they are happy when they see these on the family menu. I don’t love to eat a lot of meat like they do, so this is a good compromise for us. They can load their fajitas full of meat and I can load mine full of veggies…with just a little bit of meat.
HOW TO MAKE STEAK FAJITAS
Serve these with your favorite toppings. Here are few of our favorites:
- shredded cheese
- sour cream
- fresh lime juice
- bell peppers
- fresh avocado slices
We always eat them with Costco’s uncooked tortillas. Have you ever tried them? They are so yummy. They are probably the hardest part of this weeknight dinner. Then you will just need to prepare the toppings for your tacos. I usually have the kids grate some cheese and slice the avocados while I am cooking the tortillas on the stove top.
Now for the recipe! Seriously…it doesn’t get any better than this. You probably won’t even need to print this recipe out because it is so easy to remember. But I will provide a printable recipe for you anyways so that you can keep a copy in your Family Recipe Book HERE.
What's for dinner tonight? These Steak Fajitas are a tasty weeknight dinner recipe that you can have on the table and ready in under an hour.

- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

To prepare marinade, combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.
To prepare fajitas, trim fat from steak. Score a diamond pattern on both sides of the steak. Combine 1 1/2 cups marinade and steak in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
Combine remaining marinade, bell peppers, and onion in a zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
Prepare grill or skillet on stove.
Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Remove vegetables from bag; reserve marinade.
Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan; set aside. Place steak and vegetables on grill rack or skillet coated with cooking spray; cook 8 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
Wrap tortillas tightly in foil; place tortilla packet on grill rack the last 2 minutes of grilling time. Bring reserved marinade to a boil. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
Arrange about 1 ounce steak, bell pepper wedges, and onion wedges in a tortilla; top with 1 tablespoon salsa, about 1 teaspoon sour cream, and 1/2 tablespoon cilantro. Fold sides of tortilla over filling.
Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
This is a meal that your entire family can enjoy. My kids love these Fajitas…even with the peppers.
