With Cinco de Mayo coming up this weekend, it’s about time I shared my recipe for healthy Steak Fajitas!

Healthy Steak Fajita

Course: Main Course
Author: Suzie Bauer

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Top Sirloin thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Butter, Coconut Oil or Bacon Fat
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper sliced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper sliced
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper sliced
  • 1 Onion sliced
  • 1/2 tsp each of Paprika, Chili Powder, Ground Cumin, Garlic Powder & Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cilantro for garnish (optional)

Marinade

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Aminos
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Tomato Puree (sugar-free)
  • 1 Lime, Juiced
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp each of Red Chili Flakes, Chili Powder, Onion Powder and Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Chipotle

Instructions

  • Combine the marinade ingredients into a small bowl and mix together. Pour mixture into a gallon size zip-top bag.
  • Add the sliced meat to the bag and close. Use your hands to move the meat around in the mixture. Marinate for at least 2¬†hours (more is better) in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
  • Melt butter (or fat of choice) in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot and the butter melted, transfer the sliced meat from the marinade into the skillet using tongs. Discard the remaining marinade.
  • Cook the meat for about 6 minutes, or until cooked through. Flip the meat periodically to prevent burning.
  • Transfer the meat to a large plate and set aside. Turn the heat down to medium.
  • Add the bell peppers and onion to the skillet and toss to coat with the liquid that remained.
  • Sprinkle the remaining seasoning (except the cilantro)¬†over the vegetables and toss to combine. Cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked to your liking. Stir often.
  • Add the meat back to the skillet to reheat and mix with the vegetables. Garnish with cilantro (optional) and serve.

These fajitas are great served with Spanish Cauliflower Rice!
