La, la, bamba, la, la, bamba! If you know me and my wife then you are quite aware that we love Mexican food and have it at least once a week. While on our trip to Maui we found a place called Taqueria Cruz which had amazing grilled fish tacos and chips and queso. However, it didn’t completely satiate our cravings for a good home cooked Mexican meal.
On the plane ride back we fantasized about what meals we were going to make next week. Although the combination of meat, cheese, tortillas and veggies can be vast, it was a pretty easy choice of what we were going to make first. By now you probably already know the meal is steak fajitas but humor me anyway. It is steak fajitas!
Most people think steak fajitas are hard and too much work but I’m here to tell you they are simple as long as you make sure to get the right ingredients and use the right tools! I always like to cook with fresh veggies so I usually hit the supermarket on my way home before I make dinner. Also, you want to get a good sirloin for this meal. Preferably a thin cut with very little fat. One thing that makes this meal extremely easy is my lodge cast iron. Since I got it, I barely use the other pans in the house.
I highly recommend you make this meal and if you do let me know how it turned out! I always love to hear what you have to say so message me on facebook, twitter or even leave a comment below!
Rate the Steak Fajitas Recipe
- Arty’s Party Rub
- 2 half inch cut sirloin steaks
- ½ onion sliced.
- ¼ – ½ red, orange and green bell pepper sliced.
- ½ – 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil
- Guacamole or avocado
- Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
- Hot sauce or salsa
- Heat the deep cast iron to medium heat and the shallow one to medium high.
- Generously rub both sides of the steaks with Arty’s Party Rub.
- Hint: You can either slice your veggies now or slice them before heating the pans. Each slice should be the length of the veggie and about ¼” thick.
- Toss the veggies in a bowl with the oil so they are all coated.
- Once the cast iron skillets are hot, place the veggies in the deep skillet and the steaks in the other.
- Occasionally toss the veggies until they are served so they do not burn. If they are done sooner than the steak, lower the heat and let them sit. You will know they are done when the onions are transparent and the peppers are soft.
- After ~5 min flip the steaks.
- After another 5 min, hold the steaks on their sides to grill the edges until they are charred. About 1-2 min per side.
- Once all the sides are done take the steaks off the heat and let them rest for 5 min.
- Heat the tortillas on the non-stick pan and place them in paper towels in between two plates until you are ready to serve.
- Serve the items family style.
- Eat the fajitas.
