Steak Fajitas

Steak Fajitas

Steak fajitas are steak, peppers and onions rolled in a flour tortilla with sour cream and cheese.  At least that is how I make them.  If I am being honest I’m not entirely sure how to make a fajita.  This is the way I have always done it.

It’s almost like my smothered burritos recipe only, add peppers, remove queso and rice.  like that recipe, I like to use a good cut of meat.  When you are making a recipe where the main ingredient is steak it’s only going to be as good as your piece of meat.  I tend to go to our local butcher shop and get a nice sirloin or New York strip.

A lot of recipes for this likely use different seasonings and/or ingredients.  I just used simple steak and some beef rub that I have and let the onions and peppers do their thing.  In this video, I used quesadilla cheese that I found at the grocery store.  Buying cheese by the block and shredding it yourself will give you a better melt.

You will also notice that I have a second pan with only vegetables going in this video.  At the time I made this video my wife was taking a break from meat for a bit.  While I made my steak fajitas, I made her a vegetable fajita.  It was exactly the same as mine only she didn’t have the steak and put some salsa on it.
