Beef Fajitas
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4-6
Beef, Peppers and Onions:
  • 1½ lbs beef flank steak
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil for the beef and 1-2 Tablespoons for the peppers and onions
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon dill seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¼ – ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt to taste
  • 2 – 3 bell peppers
  • 1-2 large onions (yellow or red)
  1. You can use store bought flour tortillas or make tortillas from scratch. I used this recipe that I found on Pinterest.
  2. Marinate the steaks in the olive oil, lime juice, ground coriander, paprika, dill seeds, crushed red pepper, ground black pepper, salt and garlic. Make sure the entire flank steak is coated in the marinade. Set aside for at least 15 minutes and up to 4-6 hours in advance.
  3. Prep the veggies next. Cut the peppers on each side, so that you end up with four pieces from each pepper. Discard the seeds and tops. Cut the onions into thick slices. Brush the peppers and onions on both sides with olive oil and season with salt and ground black pepper.
  4. Preheat the grill on high for at least 15 minutes. Brush the grill grates with a paper towel that has been dunked in oil. Place the steak on the grill and cook on high heat, covered, about 6-8 minutes.
  5. At this time, place the peppers and onions on the grill. Cook the veggies until they are golden with slight char marks. Flip them over and continue cooking on the second side until they are as done as you like them, about 8 minutes total.
  6. Flip the steak over and grill for 4-6 minutes on the second side. Take the steak off the grill, cover loosely with aluminum foil and set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing it thinly.
  7. Slice the peppers into large strips.
  8. You can warm up the tortillas by grilling them for a minute or so on the grill, or use a skillet or microwave for half a minute to a minute.
  9. Serve the fajitas by placing the beef, peppers and onions on the warm tortilla and then load it up with all your favorite toppings. You can use plain chopped or sliced tomatoes and chopped/sliced avocado instead of the Pico de Gallo and Guacamole, if you’re short on time.
  10. I like to set it up like a buffet, with the beef, peppers and onions together and then the tortillas and all your favorite toppings alongside.
