How to Make It

Step 1

Combine paprika, oregano, garlic powder, cumin, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, and red pepper in a small bowl. Rub 2 tablespoons spice mixture evenly over steak.

Step 2

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steak to pan; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place steak on a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Cut across the grain into thin slices.

Step 3

Combine remaining 2 1/2 teaspoons spice mixture, onion, and bell peppers in a bowl; toss to coat. Arrange onions and peppers on pan; grill 5 minutes on each side or until lightly charred. Remove vegetables from pan. Add tortillas to pan; grill 30 seconds on each side or until lightly browned.

Step 4

Divide steak and bell pepper mixture evenly among tortillas. Top with chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Nice flavor - we used venison steak - but the dish was very dry overall. We topped the fajitas with feta, which was a nice addition.

The veggies were great. The steak lacked something unfortunately. I think a different cut of steak might work better.
