Steak Fajitas
Fajitas are a Mexican favorite of mine. Now that they make "low-carb" tortillas, I can enjoy them again.
1 lb. Skirt or Flank steak
1 green bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 onion, sliced into strips
1-2 fresh limes
Shredded Cheese (Mexican mix or Mild Cheddar)
1 package LOW-CARB Tortillas
Pica De Gallo

Traditional Marinade
1/3 Cup Fresh lime juice
1/4 Cup Tequila
1/4 Cup Canola Oil
2 Large cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp Minced fresh cilantro
2 tsp. Ground cumin
1 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 Cup onion, finely chopped
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Beer Based Marinade
12 oz. Beer
1 Cup Canola oil
1 Small white onion, finely chopped
1/4 Cup Fresh lime juice
4 Large garlic cloves, crushed
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp Chili powder
1 tsp Ground cumin
3 Dried chiles, seeds & stems removed, crushed
1 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp hot pepper sauce (optional)
Marinade the Meat
  1. Slice the steak into strips about 1" - 2" long by about a 1/4" wide
  2. Mix the marinade ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Combine the meat and marinade in a non-reactive bowl or gallon-size freezer bag
  4. Let the meat marinade in the fridge for 2-4 hours
  1. Put each of your garnishes (Shredded cheese, Pica De Gallo, Guacamole) in seperate bowls for later use
  2. Slice the bell peppers and onion into small strips
  3. Drizzle 1 or 2 Tbsp of canola oil on the vegetable mix and set aside in a bowl
  4. Slice the fresh limes into quarters and set aside seperate
  5. On a large plate, stack the tortillas with a paper towel between each
  6. Heat a cast iron pan under the broiler (high oven shelf) at about 400° for about 5 mins.
  7. Add the vegatble mix to the cast iron pan, and broil for about 2-3mins, stirring once or twice
  8. Remove the meat from the marinade
  9. Add the meat & sliced limes to the iron pan with vegetable mix and return to broiler for 2-4 mins. (until done to taste)
  10. Microwave the tortillas for 30-45 seconds
  11. Assemble the Fajitas:(One at a time, as you eat them)
    Putting some meat, vegatables (not limes), cheese, and garnish in the CENTER of a tortilla,
    Fold the left-side over the center,
    Fold the bottom UP,
    Fold the right-side over the center.
  12. EAT! ENJOY!
Low-Carb Hint: You can reduce the carbs further by using scallions instead of white onions, or, just leave out the onions all together.
