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
- 1/3 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.
