Beef Fajitas Recipe
  • Place the beefsteak into a glass baking dish or glass bowl.
  • In a small bowl, combine tomatoes, olive oil, lime juice, salt, black pepper, garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce, and honey. (Note: add more or less salt and pepper according to taste.) Mix well and pour over the steak. Cover and refrigerate at least two hours, turning the meat occasionally.
  • Remove steak from dish and save the marinade mixture.
  • Grill the steak over medium-high heat for 10 to 12 minutes for medium doneness.
  • Grill the onion slices and pepper strips (in tin foil if necessary to prevent them from falling through grill grate) until they are tender.
  • In a small saucepan, bring marinade mixture to a boil. Cook on high heat for two minutes; then reduce to a simmer and cook for three minutes. Keep warm while preparing the fajitas. (Note: it is important that the marinade be well cooked to prevent possible foodborne illness that could occur as a result of being in contact with raw meat.)
  • Slice the steak across the grain, diagonally.
  • Place strips of the steak, peppers, cilantro, and onions onto a warm tortilla and top with the cooked marinade mixture.
  • Wrap the ingredients inside the tortilla.
  • Optional: add refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, or cheese to the wrap if desired.
