This month for the Secret Recipe Club, I was given Amy’s Cooking Adventures as the blog to find a new recipe from. WOW! Amy has SO many different recipes, I really had a hard time finding just one. I finally decided on these Cilantro and Lime Flavored Steak Fajitas.
While Amy’s recipe called for beans in hers (she called them tacos), I chose to leave those out. I am not a bean fan at all, but I love peppers and onions so I loaded mine up with tons of orange and green peppers as well as sauteed onions.
Amy takes amazing food photos, so I recommend going over to her site and expecting to just sit and spend several hours over there with her recipes. She will amaze you — I promise!
- 1 lb boneless rib eye steak
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 garlic clove, smashed
- A handful of cilantro (about ¼ cup)
- 2 tsp honey
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp red pepper flakes
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 4 flour tortillas, 6-inch size
- Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
- In a mini food processor, combine the olive oil, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice. Pulse a few times until chopped. Add in the honey, cumin, chili powder, red pepper, salt, and pepper. Pulse until combined.
- Place the steak in a zipper bag. Add the marinade, flipping the bag to coat the steak. Marinate on the countertop for 30 minutes, bringing the meat to room temperature for grilling. Set aside
- While steak is marinating, slice peppers and onions and place in a skillet with about 1 tablespoon of oil. Saute until veggies reach desired doneness. Set aside but leave in the pan.
- Grill the steak 6-10 minutes per side to desired doneness.
- Once cooked, let the steak rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice. Place in the pan with the veggies and heat through.
- Meanwhile, set a skillet over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Place a tortilla in the skillet and cover with shredded Monterey jack cheese.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is lightly browned. Repeat for the remaining tortillas.
- Top each tortilla with steak slices, peppers and onions, salsa, and a dollop of guacamole.
