Living in San Diego, Mexican and Mexican-inspired food are some of my go-to’s. I could truly eat Mexican food every day of the week, but there is nothing like the freshness of a steak fajita with onions, peppers, and spicy salsa.
Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
1.5 lb flat iron steak
Salt and pepper
4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 bell peppers, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
8 soft taco-sized flour tortillas
1 cup Mexican-style shredded cheese
1/2 cup salsa
How to Make It
- Let steak warm to room temperature. Season steak with salt and pepper.
- Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add steak to skillet with butter, and cook, flipping once, until desired doneness, about 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare. While steak is cooking, spoon butter on top of the steak to incorporate flavor. Remove steak from skillet and let rest 10 minutes. Cut steak into 0.5 inch slices against the grain.
- Heat same skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Add sliced bell pepper and cook until slightly softened. Add onion and cook until both onion and pepper are soft. Set aside.
- Add salsa, pepper, onion, steak, and cheese to a tortilla and enjoy.
