Lacking ideas on what to make for dinner? Steak fajitas are your best bet. They don't require a lot of ingredients or equipment, are easy to make and, of course, are super tasty.

All you need to make steak fajitas at home is good meat (like flank steak), a simple marinade, vegetables of your choice, and a few minutes of grilling.

Follow this simple steak fajitas recipe for a quick and tasty dinner.



How should you choose the meat for beef fajitas?

The best meat for your steak fajitas will depend on your taste and whether you want the meat to be rare, medium-rare or well-done.

We recommend choosing between rump, skirt steak, or flank steak. Skirt steak compared to the flank is more tender and has more flavor. It can be cooked well-done without getting too chewy. Flank steak is a better choice if you prefer your steak fajitas rare to medium.

What is the best way to marinate steak for steak fajitas?

To make the steak fajita marinade, juice the lime, mince the garlic, finely chop the jalapeño, and chop the cilantro including its stems. Mix all the ingredients and coat the steak with this marinade.

Leave the meat to sit for an hour at room temperature. You can also marinate it longer if you wish, just pop it in the fridge for 2 to 24 hours.

What kind of tortillas to use for fajitas?

You can use either corn or flour tortillas for this steak fajitas recipe. If you wish, you can even make a homemade flour tortilla; all you need is a cast iron skillet.

When serving the steak fajitas, make sure that the tortilla is warmed up, either in the microwave, the skillet, or a tortilla warmer.

What should you serve with steak fajitas?

You can choose shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, or lettuce to serve with steak fajitas. Pico de gallo, refried beans, or Spanish rice are also great.

Want dessert? A fruit salad would be good to pair with this delicious fajitas.
