Fabulous Fajitas

Mercy. Fabulous does not begin to cover it:) These are an absolute favorite and there is never a bite left when we make them. They turn out tender and juicy every single time. While it is made in the crock pot, it is not an all day type recipe. I like to throw them in before leaving for one of daughter's softball or son's baseball games. I add the veggies when we get back and dinner is ready in about 10-15 minutes.

Always a bonus.

FABULOUS FAJITAS
1 and 1/2 pounds boneless sirloin
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 and 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 large pepper, cut in strips
1 large onion, cut in strips

tortillas

First the steak needs to be cut into strips. I find this is easier if it has been partially frozen. The knife slices the strips easily, without the meat squirming away. Brown the steak strips in oil. Place the steak and drippings in the crock pot. Add lime juice, garlic and dry seasonings. Stir. Cover and cook on high 2-3 hours, or until meat is tender. Add peppers and onion and let steam just until crisp/tender, about 10-15 minutes.

Serve with tortillas and toppings of choice, which may or may not include salsa, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, tomatoes, lettuce, olives, etc.


Can you hear that? They're calling your name.
