From My Kitchen: Steak Fajitas

I don’t know about you, but certain dishes I have never bothered cooking at home, just because most of the time, the restaurants just make it better than I can in my kitchen. Fajitas has always been one of those dishes. Until now. I researched and found an array of recipes, and then combined whichever parts I thought were great, and this is the final draft of my recipe for Steak Fajitas. It came out super delicious, and if you have the time to make all the separate components, this is something worth your time and effort!

What you’ll need:

For the seasoning:

  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

For the Pico de Gallo:

  • 1 pound medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

for the Steak:

  • 1 1/2 to pounds flank steak, cut into strips
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 medium red pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
  • 1/2 cup of beer (or beef broth)
  • flour tortillas
  • Pico de Gallo
  • fresh cilantro, chopped

Combine all ingredients for the seasoning and mix well.

Combine all ingredients for the Pico de Gallo and mix well. Refrigerate.

Add Steak, peppers, onions and 2 tbsp of the seasoning mix to a hot frying pan with 2 tbsp of cooking oil. Lower the heat to medium and fry for about 5 minutes, then add the beer (or beef broth). Cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, until the desired doneness of the steak is achieved.

Serve on tortillas, topped off with Pico de Gallo. Buen Provecho!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
