Beef Fajitas with a Cilantro Lime Marinade

I love Tyler Florence… and his food! He always has great recipes and after reading his Beef Fajita recipe I went right to the store to get all the ingredients to make it!

Beef Fajiats are a great meal to make for your friends with a total WOW factor. Once the beef is hanging out in the marinade the steps are pretty simple – just saute quickly and serve!

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together marinade ingredients. Place steak in a shallow container, and pour marinade over it. Refrigerate, covered, 8 hours or overnight to tenderize meat.
  3. Drain the marinade from the meat. Grill the steak on a grill pan over medium-high heat for 4 minutes each side until just slightly pink in the center. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let stand before cutting into thin strips.
  4. In the same pan with the steak juices, add the bell peppers and onions. Saute the mixture for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are slightly softened. Thinly slice the steak against the grain on a diagonal. Combine both the vegetables and the steak and serve with warm tortillas, shredded cheese, salsa and Guacamole!
