Low Fat Recipe

Steak Fajitas with tender marinated flank steak mixed with onions and peppers in tender tortillas. Topped with diced tomato, lettuce, salsa and sour cream.

Steak Fajitas


1 flank steak (1 pound), well trimmed
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into thin strips
1 large green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon corn oil
8 flour tortillas, 8 inches in diameter, warmed
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup fat free sour cream

Recipe Directions

Score the steak by making long, shallow cut 1 inch apart in both sides.

Make the marinade by mixing the lime juice, salt, garlic, black pepper, and cayenne in a large shallow dish. Add the steak; turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 3 hours or overnight, turning once. Preheat the broiler or prepare a grill.

Remove the steak from the marinade. Broil or grill 6 inches from the heat for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or longer if you prefer. Slice the steak across the grain into thin strips.

While the steak is cooking, saute the onion and peppers in the oil in a medium skillet until soft, about 5 minutes. Mix the steak into the vegetables.

Divide the steak, onions, and peppers to top the tortillas. Divide the diced tomato, lettuce, salsa, sour cream to top the meat mixture on each tortilla.
