Steak fajitas

Steak Fajitas

You can sear these steak fajitas right on your grill grates, but we love the texture produced by a cast iron skillet. This recipe is perfect for weekend get-togethers and, with a little bit of prep, weeknight meals.

Difficulty: Easy

Prep: 130 minutes

Cook: 20 minutes

Total: 150 minutes

Serves: 8


2 lb. trimmed skirt steak

¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup orange juice

Juice of 1 lime

1 tablespoon minced garlic

Kountry Boys Fajita Seasoning

Flour tortillas

Guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese and cilantro, to serve


Toss steaks, olive oil, orange juice and lime juice, then add to a resealable plastic bag. Marinate for 2 to 8 hours.

Remove meat from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Season generously with Kountry Boys Fajita Seasoning.

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and swirl pan to coat. Cook the steaks for 3 – 4 minutes, or to desired doneness. For medium-rare, cook to a temperature of 140 – 145 degrees.

Let steak rest for at least 10 minutes.

While steak is resting, heat tortillas in a dry skillet over low heat, about 2 minutes per side. Keep warm in a dish towel or tortilla warmer.

Slice steak against the grain and serve with tortillas and toppings.
