Homemade Organic Beef Fajitas

I found the original recipe from The Frugal Chef.  Her recipes are wonderful.  I have adapted this recipe to make it organic and adjust some of the seasonings.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

For the Marinade

  • 1 pound grass fed organic flank steak
  • 2 large organic limes, juiced or 3 Tbsp. organic lime juice
  • 1/2 cup first cold pressed organic olive oil
  • 1/3 cup organic cilantro, chopped or 2 Tbsp. organic dried oregano
  • 6 organic garlic cloves,chopped
  • 1 organic chili pepper, seeded and chopped ( I used one of my Homemade Organic Pickled Jalapenos and kept the seeds for more heat)
  • 1 Tbsp. organic lime zest (optional, if you only have organic lime juice on hand no worries)
  • 1 tsp. organic dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1 tsp. organic dried cumin
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground organic peppercorn blend

For the Fajitas

Here’s How I do it:

For the Marinade

  1. Cut meat into strips against the grain.
  2. Place meat into a quart jar with a wide mouth.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the jar.
  4. Next add the olive oil and organic lime juice.
  5. Add water, if necessary, to cover the meat.
  6. Refrigerate overnight.

For the Fajitas

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the tallow and allow to get warm and bubbly.
  3. Add the vegetables and cook for 10 to 12 minutes until softened but still crisp.
  4. Remove from pan and set aside. I use a medium sized bowl.
  5. Add more tallow to the pan and allow to get warm and bubbly again.
  6. Add the meat to the skillet and cook for about 7 minutes, or until cooked through.
  7. Add the vegetables to the meat, and warm until heated through and serve on tortillas.
  8. Save the drippings.  After the meat and vegetables are removed from the skillet, reduce the drippings until most of the water is out.  Now you have a great sauce to use in Homemade Organic Beef Fajita Casserole
  9. Enjoy!
