It’s a Friday Fajita Night…

“Roll up the tortilla and eat it from one end.

Your fork is used only to eat any filling that falls to the plate.”

~Etiquette Scholar

Where it’s for a dinner for two, or a gathering of friends and family,

Steak Fajitas are great fun to assemble and eat.

The marinade smells and tastes amazing!

I think ribeye steak has great flavour.

Flatten the steak, then coat in the marinade.

Scrape off the excess marinade, salt, now let’s cook that steak!

Method:

  1. Mix all marinade ingredients.
  2. Coat the steak with the marinade and let it sit at room temperature for an hour, or longer in the fridge.
  3. Remove the steak from the fridge, to come to room temperature, wipe off the excess marinade, and reserve it.
  4. Heat a wide and deep pan for 1-2 minute, then add oil to the pan and let this heat up for 1 minute.
  5. Add the steak, frying on each side till cooked to your likeness.
  6.  Remove from pan and let sit, tented with foil, to rest.
  7.  Add a little more oil to the pan if necessary, then quick fry the onions and peppers,
  8. Add the reserved marinade and stir through.
  9. Remove the  ribeye from the foil, and slice against the grain into thin slices.
  10. Have your warm tortilla wraps at the ready, lay on the onion pepper mix, then the slices of steak.
