Good meals do not have to be complicated or hard. Let’s make steak fajitas quick and easy, very little prep work.

Steak Fajita Recipe

I know I am going against what most bloggers do and sharing the recipe first, but this is where this meal starts.

And I don’t know about you sometimes I just want to get to the recipe!

But if you stay with me I’ll show you how I pulled the meal together to serve it.

Steak Fajitas

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes

Let's make steak fajitas the quick and easy way!


  • 2 cups of lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprike
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • koser salt and pepper to taste
  • flank steak
  • peppers and onions (if you want them)


  1. add flank steak (and peppers and onions if your using them) to a ziplock bags with 2 cups of lime juice
  2. push out all of the air
  3. leave on counter for 20 minutes flipping half way through the time or leave in fridge all day or overnight
  4. remove steak pat dry
  5. mix spices together
  6. rub spices into meat on both sides (sprinkle on pepperws and onions)
  7. grill over medium heat about 6 minutes on each side depending on thickness (do not over cook)
  8. let steak rest about 10 minutes befoer slicing, this will help keep the meat tender and juicy
  9. while the steak is resting toss the peppers and onions on the grill you can just put a piece of foil on the gril or use a grill pan if you have one.. takes about 5 minutes


its best to under cook flank steak to prevent drying, it will continue to cook when removed from the grill while resting.

Gather Your Toppings

It’s safe to say, everyone likes a little something different when it comes to toppings.

Think about who you are serving and what they like.

At my house its LOTS of cheese & cilantro, for everyone.

Salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, green sauce, sour cream, take your pick and add it.

Let’s Talk Side Dishes

I mean there is the classic beans and rice.

But there are so many kinds of rice pick your favorite add it or even cauliflower rice.

And beans there are 100’s of ways to make them… here I just used a can of premade beans.

Using larger ramekins, or smaller bowls helps keep wet foods from running into dry foods.

You could also serve grilled corn, which is one of my favorites!

Severing Steak Fajitas Charcuterie Style

If you follow me on Instagram you know I LOVE charcuterie boards, and they are a great way to skip a ton of dishes.

When serving a meal charcuterie style I like to start with the star of the show… here it’s the steak.

Then I add in the larger containers of wet foods or toppings.

For me it is easiest to start with the biggest items that take up the most room on the board.

Folding items when possible helps take up less room.

Smaller toppings like cheese, lettuce, cilantro, and limes are easy to shape into the open spaces.

Do not be afraid to stack items to create room.

PS you can always refill your board as people take things.

After you fill the board all you need o serve is plates and silverware!

I took this meal outside to serve it!

Oh how I am ready for outdoor dining season.
