Steak Fajitas

I absolutely love steak fajitas! This dish is typically my go-to order when I go out for Mexican food, so I decided to make my own at-home version. Check out this recipe for my gluten-free steak fajitas and let me know what you think.

  • 1/3 c. Lime Juice
  • 5 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/3 c. Water
  • 1 tbsp. Garlic (minced)
  • 2 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/3 c. Cilantro (chopped)
  • 2 Skirt Steaks (about 1.5 lbs total)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 Large Onion


  1. Make your marinade: Combine the lime juice, olive oil, water, garlic, cumin, salt, paprika, black pepper, and cilantro into a large Ziploc bag.
  2. Add the steaks to the bag, seal, and shake so that the steaks are fully covered.
  3. Place the sealed bag in the refrigerator, and let the steaks marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  4. Slice your bell peppers and onion.
  5. Add olive oil to a cast iron pan (can substitute a frying pan) and let heat.
  6. Saute your peppers and onions until the onions become translucent and the peppers soften. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  7. When ready to cook your steaks, add oil to your pan, and heat.
  8. Add your steaks, and cook to desired ”done-ness”.
  9. Remove your steak and let rest for a few minutes. While your steak is resting, you can add your peppers and onions back into the pan to warm if they’re cold
  10. Once your steak has rested (a few minutes). Slice your steak into strips. Top with peppers and onions.
  11. Serve and enjoy!
