Easy steak fajita recipe

This healthy steak fajitas recipe is very similar to my chicken fajita recipe on this site, it just uses steak instead of chicken, and the steak fajita seasoning is different.

But it is also really healthy, easy and quick to prepare and tastes fantastic.

What’s a fajita?

A fajita is a Mexican dish which consists of meat and vegetables in a tortilla. These quick fajitas are made with a frying steak (I used sirloin, but you could use any good tender frying steak) and onions and bell peppers, with some fajita seasoning and chipotle sauce.

In this recipe, we fry the steak in a griddle pan on the hob, but of course, you could also grill the meat on the BBQ. In fact, these would be great to include as a BBQ recipe.

For the fajita seasoning this time we use another fajita recipe mix we bought from Aldi, this time with a smoky BBQ flavour. I am sure you can find something similar in your local store.

To add to the smokiness of the beef fajita seasoning we also use the spicy Bulls-eye Smoky chipotle sauce which we bought at Tesco’s. This is really a great tasting fajita sauce that makes this an easy fajita recipe with a kick.

Restaurant fajitas

We discovered this steak fajita recipe gives a nice taste and produces tasty steak fajitas which taste just like the ones we used to eat at our favourite Mexican restaurant in Gouda called Xochimilco.

I would always order the sirloin fajitas when we went there for a treat. Their restaurant fajita recipe was wonderful.

They turned up with the beef sizzling on a red hot cast iron serving platter. Delicious.

Xochimilco is an affordable and super little restaurant that serves up fantastic Mexican food in the centre of Gouda. Well worth visiting if you are ever in the neighbourhood.

This is really a pretty healthy fajita recipe. You could even turn these into vegetarian fajitas or even vegan fajitas…….by leaving out the steak!

You could add some asparagus to fill them out a little bit. But we do think the carnivore version is better!

I do not cook the onions in this recipe, or the chicken fajita recipe, as I like them raw sometimes.

I used a red onion this time in these photos. You could also cook the onions with your peppers if you prefer, as I know some people do not like raw onions.

If you prefer you could also try to make some homemade flatbread for this recipe instead of using store-bought tortillas. My recipe for no yeast flatbread is here. Only 3 ingredients and ready in less than 15 minutes! Super delish!

steak fajita seasoning recipe

These healthy fajitas are easy and quick to prepare and you will come back to this recipe as it is SOOOO good!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 sirloin steaks (I have used 450g of 32 day matured Black Angus Sirloin from Aldi)
  • 1 bag Aldi fajita seasoning
  • Smoky chipotle Sauce
  • 2 bell peppers (colours up to you)
  • 6 small tortilla wraps (or some homemade flatbread - see linked recipe)
  • 1 red (or brown) onion sliced
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

Preparation

    1. Take the steak out of the fridge 30 minutes before starting to cook to let them reach room temperature.
    2. Make sure the steaks are not too thick. If they are more than 3cm then cut them in half transversely to reduce thickness.
    3. Sprinkle both sides with some of the fajita seasoning and season with salt and pepper.
    4. Prepare the peppers by slicing them so that you have nice strips to cook. Slice the onion thinly.

Cooking

    1. Cook the steaks in a hot griddle pan until done to your preferred level of ‘doneness’. I like them medium.
    2. The time to cook will depend on the type of cut of meat you have chosen and the thickness. Then leave to rest for several minutes before slicing into strips.
    3. At the same time fry the peppers in another pan until browned. Sprinkle on any remaining fajita meat seasoning if there is any left.
    4. Heat the wraps in the microwave according to the package instructions.
    5. Then assemble the wrap: chipotle sauce, steak strips, pepper, and raw onion slices and munch away!

Notes

Above ingredients will give you 6 wraps, enough for 3 people.
