Easy Steak Fajitas
1 1/2 lbs. of sirloin steak (sliced thinly against the grain)
3 limes (divided)
1-2 T. of e.v.o.
1/2 cup of water
1 medium onion (sliced thinly)
1 large red sweet pepper (julienne sliced)
1 large green sweet pepper (julienne sliced)
sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
1 packet of McCormick's fajita seasoning mix
sour cream for garnish
tortilla shells (warmed)
-Place the sliced sirloin in a large shallow dish with the juice of 2 limes; cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours (the longer the better). Heat up the e.v.o. in a large skillet and add in the marinated sirloin (discard the lime juice marinade), salt and pepper. Saute' over medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes. Add the water, veggies and seasoning packet. Continue to cook on medium-high heat for about 6-8 minutes or until the veggies are softened some. Assemble fajitas by placing some sirloin and veggies on top of a warmed tortilla shell followed by a dollop of sour cream and a wedge of lime for squeezing. Serves 4-6. Enjoy!
