Steak Fajita Recipe!

How many times have you made fajitas and they just were not as good as the Mexican restaurant down the way? Well I am here to solve this problem for you! There are a couple of secrets to my delicious fajitas. The first thing is you must use a specific cut of meat, I use flank steak. The second thing is making sure your vegetables are cooked but still have a little crunch! The last thing is a great guacamole. I make my guacamole fresh with avocado, red onion, jalapenos, lime juice and salt and pepper. I also like to spice up my sour cream with adobo!


To make these ridiculously delicious fajitas, you will need the following ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs flank steak

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

juice of 1 small lemon or lime

1 1/2 tbls Worcestershire

1 tbls Dijon mustard

2 cloves garlic minced

1/2 tsp black pepper

4 bell peppers (assorted colors)

4 onions


In a mixing bowl or cup combine 1/2 cup oil,


1/3 cup soy sauce,

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

lemon or lime juice,

1 1/2 tbls Worcestershire,

tbls Dijon,

2 cloves of garlic,

and 1/2 tsp pepper.

Now, mix, mix, mix!

Place meat in a Ziploc bag,

pour marinade over meat and refrigerate for 6 hours.

Slice peppers into strips,

and onions into rings.

In a pan with a little oil, cook the vegetables until soft, but still a little crunchy.

To cook the meat, preheat BBQ to med high heat (350). Cook 7 minutes on one side, then 7 minutes on the other. Let rest 7 minutes, then slice meat AGAINST THE GRAIN! The meat is really the star of this dish!

Serve on warm flour tortillas with guacamole, sour cream and vegetables!

Products I LOVE! -Quaker Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Rice Cakes

When I am dieting, (which seems like everyday!) I really crave sweets.
So instead of eating M&M’s or Mini Chips Ahoy,
(Which are not really that bad because they are small. Right?!)

I LOVE to take a Quaker peanut butter chocolate chip rice cake (60 calories),

and top it with a tablespoon of peanut butter (95 calories)!

It’s like my own little chocolate peanut butter wonderland!
