Beef Fajitas – Hold the Fajita


Still following a low-carb diet and what I find great is while I sometimes crave a buttered roll for breakfast, other times I can make a meal like these Beef Fajitas without the bread portion and still love it! Here’s a great, quick way to make fajitas, beef or chicken, and you have the option of using fajitas or even lettuce to wrap up the filling. I serve with a dollop of salsa and fat-free sour cream. You can dress these up how you like – some melted cheese, diced avocado, etc. Enjoy!

Overall rating – 3.5 stars

Beef Fajitas

cooking spray or olive oil

1 pound lean steak, I used a london broil, flank steak is also good

1 lime

chili powder

2 to 3 onions

1 to 2 peppers, red or green or one of each

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat skillet over medium high heat. Add spray or olive oil, about 1 tsp. Squeeze half of the lime juice over steak and sprinkle with chili powder. I used about 1/2 tsp. for mild flavor. Use more for heat. Add steak to skillet and cook several minutes on each side for medium rare. Remove from pan and let stand, do not cut up yet. Add more spray or olive oil to skillet and over low heat caramelize peppers and onions. Season with salt, pepper, more lime juice and more chili powder. I also throw in some garlic powder for additional flavor. Once softened and caramelized, slice steak very thinly and toss back in skillet and over low heat cook for 2 to 3 more minutes. Serve with any or all of the following toppings: salsa, sour cream, shredded cheese, diced avocados, etc. Serve with tortillas, lettuce wraps or alone.

    hey there dani! looks like another quick and tasty winner. I was in the store tonight and picked up best of cooking light 9 – and lo and behold flipped right to the yankee pot roast and thought of you. ;P that always seems to happen to me with you and home cook.

    hope you’re having a lovely week!
