Beef Fajita's!

1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp grated lime rind
2 1/2 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14.25 oz) can low salt beef broth

2 lbs flank steak
2 red bell peppers, sliced
2 yellow/orange bell peppers, sliced
1 large sweet onion, sliced
cooking spray
16 6 inch fat free flour tortilla
toppings of choice

To prepare marinade, combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl, set aside.
To prepare fajita's: trim fat from steak, score a diamond pattern on both sides of steak. Combine 1 1/2 cups marinade and steak in large zip lock bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 4 hrs or overnight, turning occasionally. Combine remaining marinade, bell peppers, and onion in a zip lock bag, seal and marinate 4 hrs or over night, turning occasionally.
Prepare grill or broiler.
Remove steak from bag, discarding marinade. Remove vegetables from bag, reserving marinade. Place the reserved marinade in a small saucepan, and set aside. Place steak and vegetables on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, cook 8 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
Wrap tortillas tightly in foil, place tortilla packet on grill rack of the last 2 min of grilling time. Bring reserved marinade to a boil. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Place the steak and vegetables on serving platter and drizzle with the reserved marinade.
arrange 2 oz steak, and about 2 oz veggies on tortilla  serve with toppings of choice.

We went a bit lazy and just sliced the meat in advanced and cooked in a large skillet on the stove. Came out soo tasty, Mom loved them!! the Lime juice is fantastic! and we did top with cheese. and used whole wheat tortilla's!!

That looks tasty. I really am interested in trying out the marinade. I wonder how it would do on some pork ribs.

Megan said...

That marinade sounds awesome on any meat. I bet it's just as good on chicken or even shrimp. Now I want fajitas!
