Flank Steak Fajitas

This year I am planting a few bell pepper plants in my garden. I’m hoping that makes for abundant opportunities for fajitas this summer. Fajitas are one of my favorite tasty, but uncomplicated dinners. I usually make chicken fajitas because I always have chicken on had, but over this past weekend I decided to change things up a bit and make them with flank steak. Fajitas are also great for group social occasions because you can lay all the ingredients out on the counter and allow guests to pick and choose what they like for their plates.

I only had time to let the steak marinade for an hour and a half since I didn’t get started soon enough, but there was still a lot of flavor to the meat. I like to poke the meat all over on both sides with a fork. I think it tenderizes it a bit more and helps the marinade really soak in.

We love fajitas at our house - and there are so many recipes to play with. I recently saw a recipe similar to yours with the juices. I didn't marinade for more than 2 hours and it still had tons of flavor. I will be giving you recipe a try this week.
