3-4poundbeef roast - sliced thin
3bell peppers - greenred, yellow - sliced thin
1medium red onion - sliced thin
small flour tortillas
2 - 4Tablespoonsolive oil for frying
Juice from 1 lime
1teaspooncrushed red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
In a medium bowl whisk together the olive oil. Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, cumin chili powder, red pepper flakes, garlic, salt, and pepper until combined.
Pour half of your marinade over the thin beef strips and the other half over your fresh peppers and onions mixture.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. The longer you marinate the stronger the flavors will be.
Preheat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy skillet on medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add in your veggies. Cook until soft and translucent. 6 - 8 minutes.
Remove the veggies from the pan and set them aside.
Add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to the pan. Once the pan is back up to temperature, add in your marinated beef strips. Cook just until browned on all sides. Stirring often. Don't overcook the meat or it will be tough.
If you are not a fan of pink in the center, cook a bit longer than just brown on all sides.
The meat will brown up very quickly if your pan is hot enough. You want that quick sizzle sound as soon as your meat hits the pan. This will also help to lock in all the yummy juices.
Serve your Weeknight Beef Fajitas in warm flour tortillas, topped with your favorite toppings.
