No-Mess Steak Fajitas

No-Mess Steak Fajitas

These easy fajitas cook in a heavy-duty aluminum-foil roasting bag. The bag perfectly steams the meat, locking in its natural juices. It provides quick cleanup, too. You can save a few minutes of prep time by asking the butcher to thinly slice the steak for you.
