Steak Fajitas

Real Simple JUNE 2008

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings


  • Freeze It:
  • 1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded (if desired) and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 1-quart resealable plastic freezer bags
  • Cook It:
  • 4 bags frozen fajita mixture
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 8-inch flour tortillas, warmed
  • Store-bought refrigerated fresh salsa (optional)
  • Sour cream (optional)


Freeze It:
In a large bowl, combine the steak, onion, bell peppers, jalapeño, chili powder, hot sauce, and 3/4 teaspoon salt.

Divide evenly among 4 bags. Freeze until ready to cook, up to 3 months.

Cook It:
In a large skillet, over medium heat, heat the oil (use 1 teaspoon per serving).

Empty the frozen contents of the bags into the skillet (use 1 bag per serving). Cook, covered, stirring occasionally to break up ingredients, for 10 minutes.

Raise heat to medium-high and cook, uncovered, until the vegetables are tender and the steak is cooked through, 2 to 6 minutes.

Serve with the tortillas and the salsa and sour cream, if desired.
