Steak and Pepper Fajitas

Most people don’t need a lot of convincing for a taco or fajita night, and this recipe is on heavy repeat in our household with no leftovers in sight!
This is a simple fresh fajita marinade that can be used on any type of protein, my favorite is flank steak.

Fajita ingredients

1 pound flank steak
1 green bell pepper sliced
1 red bell pepper sliced
1 small yellow onion sliced
2 garlic cloves chopped
½ cup of sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon avocado oil 
1 Avocado sliced

Marinade Ingredients

½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice, and don’t even try with the bottle stuff!
2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
2 cloves chopped garlic
¼ cup chopped cilantro
¼ cup raw honey
2 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce or coconut aminos
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon cayenne, less if you like

Directions

  1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together and whisk well.
  2. Place flank steak in a baking dish or bag and pour the marinade over making sure to completely coat.
  3. Marinade for at least 4 hours, overnight is best.
  4. Take the flank steak out and let sit at room temp for 30 mins.
  5. Heat oil in a cast iron or heavy skillet (personal preference is Le Creuset) , first cook the mushrooms until lightly browned then add the peppers and garlic.
  6. Cook all the veggies for 5-6 mins over medium-high heat until they are lightly seared.
  7. Adjust the temp to high and add the steak constantly turning and cooking for another 3-5 minutes or preferred doneness.
