Your oven practically does all the work and there’s no standing over a hot pan when making these AMAZING fajitas… it’s a perfect dinner for busy weeknights!
Your Simple Ingredients
By using skirt steak, no marinating is required and the result is deliciously seasoned and tender strips of steak with peppers, onions and garlic (YUM!).
A Helpful Hint for Slicing the Steak
Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes prior to slicing. This firms the meat and makes it easier to slice into thin strips.
How to Make It
- Toss together steak strips, peppers, onions and garlic with olive oil in a large bowl. Sprinkle seasonings over the mixture and toss again to coat as evenly as possible.
- Spread evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray and bake.
- During the last five minutes of baking, place flour tortillas (wrapped in aluminum foil) in the oven to heat.
