The first time I made these beef fajitas, my family couldn’t get enough.  The next time I had to make a double batch so everyone had enough.  This is a favorite evening meal for me because it fixes up quick.  It would be a good one for entertaining, too—the avocados add a nice dash of color.

Fantastic Beef Fajitas Recipe

Fantastic Beef Fajitas

1 lb. beef top sirloin steak or flank steak, trimmed and cut against the grain into ¼ inch strips

Marinade:  3 Tbsp. canola oil

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 garlic clove, minced

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

Fajitas:   ½ medium onion, sliced

1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced into thin strips

2 Tbsp. canola oil, divided

8 flour tortilla shells, warmed

2 avocados, peeled and slice


Sour cream

In a large resealable bag, combine marinade ingredients; add beef.  Seal and refrigerate for 3-6 hours or overnight, turning several times.

Discard marinade.  In a skillet, sauté onion and pepper in 1 tablespoon oil until crisp tender; remove from pan.  Add remaining oil and sauté meat until no longer pink, about 4 minutes.  Add vegetables to pan and heat through.

To serve, place a spoonful of meat/vegetable mixture on a warmed tortilla and top with avocado, salsa and sour cream.  Roll tortilla around filling.           4-6 servings
