Easy Skillet Steak Fajita


Last weekend She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted fajita for dinner. So, it was time to figure out an easy way to fulfill her request. I did a little research and came up with an easy, but great, Skillet Steak Fajita.

recipe serves 4


soft tortilla shells.

2 lbs. flap steak.

1 red bell pepper – cut into rounds and halved.

1 green bell pepper – cut into rounds and halved.

1 medium onion – cut into wedges,

1 Anaheim chilli pepper – blackened on grill and then chopped.

1 clove garlic – minced.

2 tomatoes – diced.

1 Tbsp canola oil.

2 Tbsp chopped cilantro.

store bought guacamole.

For marinade:

3 Tbsp fresh lime juice.

2 Tbsp honey.

1 tsp ground cumin.

1 tsp smoked paprika.

1/2 tsp cinnamon.


Combine marinade ingredients in sauce pan and mix together. Coat both sides of flap steak with all the marinade and then place in plastic bag. Refrigerate the steak while prepping the rest of the  meal.

Once all vegetables, other then the Anaheim pepper, are cut place in bowl.

Plate the flap steak, heat BBQ and then cook steak for 5 minutes each side. While cooking the steak use tongs to rotate Anaheim pepper until nicely blackened.


Once steak is done, let it set up on plate while you fry the vegetables in 1 Tbsp of canola oil. Chop the Anaheim pepper and stir it and garlic into the vegetables. When vegetables are done remove from heat.


Slice flap steak into long somewhat slender pieces.

Plate tortilla shells, add steak, vegetables, sprinkle with diced tomatoes and cilantro. To the plate add a side of guacamole.

And that’s all there is to making my Easy Skillet Steak Fajita. Enjoy your great and easy dinner for four!
