Easy Steak Fajitas
Tender, juicy, melt-in-your-mouth slices of steak with bell peppers and onion. SO SO GOOD. Serve with tortillas, pico and guacamole.
It’s funny. When I lived in Los Angeles, we could grill all year long. And I never really took it for granted until this week. And now Ben uses the grill in 40 degree weather in his parka and beanie, shivering.
I guess it’s not that funny at all. Well, at least I’m not the one outside grilling in the coldest weather ever.
Anyway, if you’re in Chiberia like me, you can employ your partner to go outside to take care of all the labor. Or if you are lucky enough to live in Southern California with sunny 70 degree weather, you can definitely grill this.
But for those who don’t have access to a grill, no problem. You can still make the easiest steak fajitas ever. The steak can be thrown onto a cast iron skillet, and the veggies can cook on the stovetop while your meat rests.
See, told you. Super easy, quick, and fast.
Serve with tortillas (you can easily throw your tortillas on the grill for 30 seconds while you cook your steak/peppers/onion), pico and guacamole. Or you can simply eat your steak and veggies because, well, Atkins diet, no?

I made Steak Fajitas it was Great. I made For Dinner with Out The Pepper My Husband Dose Not Pepper in it.
This was really yummy with the stir fry steak I had in the fridge. Quick and easy! My 7 year old had multiple servings and grabbed one more piece before bed.
This is easy. I’ll try it.
Delicious, easy, and fast! My 2 daughters and I loved them.
Made this for a party and was a very good
Absolutely delicious. I made these for my husband, kids, my sister and her husband and one of their boys who is still in Canada. I asked my nephew what he wanted me to make special for him for his birthday – His favorite – Fahitas !! Just smelling leftovers the next day makes our mouths water.
My boyfriend love them, Fajitas are great for camping, easy to prepare….
Fajita turned out delicious!!! Nice and easy recipe.
I’m trying this tonight!!
Delicious & easy
We love this recipe. It is now one of our favorite meals.
Chipotle mayo Wocky Slush
I added some lime juice to and used olive oil as a healthier alternative. This was delicious and a perfect combination of seasoning.
Delicious and so easy
These were soooooo easy and DELICIOUS! Thank you!
Damn delicious. Made it with flank steak.
I made this om Monday for my boyfriend and he just couldnt get enough!! He said it eas sooooo good.
Delicious and easy! Family loved it!
Fantastic! On my 3rd time making this one!
Honey, that’s not the coldest weather ever. I’m only in western PA and when it’s 40 degrees in the winter we call it a heat wave.We get down to sub-zero.
Anyway, this recipe is pretty good but I’d add some lime. Lime juice just makes the fajitas, IMHO.
I live in Canada not too far north of Fargo. -40c is the same as -40f. That is most of our winter and that is a far cry from +40f…. but anyways, fajitas are a good things on a cold ass winter evening, eh!
I made these fajitas for a quick portable meal while canoeing to a hockey game.
-40 degrees celcius is not the same as -40 degrees farenheit
Actually, Mr. Maple Syrup is correct. -40C is the same as -40F. The formula is (-40°C × 9/5) + 32 = -40°F. Best not to go up against a Canadian when discussing cold temperatures.
I lived in MN for several years, then moved to Chicago area. I didn’t wear a winter coat in Chicago for years… people thought I was strange! But I KNEW what cold weather was really like.
These fajitas are awesome… yes, add some lime juice. Love recipes from this site!
These fajitas were delicious, but I would love to know what the calorie count of one serving is/ how big a serving is if it serves 6 for future reference.
Solid recipe. My go-to!
Tried these tonight for dinner and it was a hit!! Loved it. Very yummy with just the right amount of spices ( not overwhelming) so good! Thank you!
We had to make these inside in a skillet because of weather, but my husband and son loved this. I used my own fajita seasoning that I make in bulk (it’s very close to your spices) .
We will make this again even if it means inside when the weather doesn’t cooperate!
Best steak fajitas I’ve ever had!! I cooked them on cast iron skillet, but next time I can’t wait to grill it!!
This looks really damn delicious!
