Now onto the recipe that you must make ASAP! (I'm the oldest child, hence the bossiness.)
Not just any steak fajitas, the best steak fajitas.
Rachel from In No Simple Language has started a regular post entitled Menu Monday. She and her husband cook the most amazing meals, and yes I did say and her husband. He plans and cooks 2-3 meals a week. What a lucky woman!
She posted this fajita recipe a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't wait to try it.
1 lb of steak flank
3 plum tomatoes
big bunch of cilantro
2 small white onion
pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 cup vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1-2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp oregano
2 limes, juiced
4-5 cloves garlic minced
Begin by marinating your steak. I marinated mine the night before and it was soooo good and it made cooking the recipe the next day so easy and quick.
Chop up all tomatoes, cilantro, and 1 onion and mix in bowl. This will be your pico de gallo . Squeeze half a lime over it and sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate until it's time to eat. ( I didn't make the pico de gallo, but wanted to include this from the original recipe in case others wanted to make it.)
Cut your other onion into strips. Brown in pan with olive oil. When they're brown, cover with foil to keep them warm.
Grill your steak to your liking. When it's done, let it cool for a few minutes, then cut in slices against the grain.
Slice your avocado.
Fill tortilla shells with 2-3 pieces of steak, pico de gallo, onions, a few slices of avocado, a few leaves of cilantro (if you didn't make the pico) and a squeeze of lime and eat!
