Steak

Steak fajitas are always a great option for dinner, but sometimes it can be a little pricey. Flank steak is a great option that is both delicious and budget-friendly. When cooked properly, flank steak is incredibly tender and full of flavor.

The key to perfect flank steak fajitas is in the cooking. You’ll want to cook the meat on high heat until it’s browned on the outside but still pink in the middle. Be sure to let your steak rest after cooking. This will ensure that the flank steak is juicy and flavorful.

Veggies

Fajitas wouldn’t be complete without some delicious veggies. I like to add bell peppers and onions to my flank steak fajitas. You can use any veggies that you like, though. Some other great options include mushrooms, zucchini, and squash.

The key to getting the perfect veggie fajitas is to cook them on high heat until they’re slightly charred. This will give them a great flavor and make them extra tasty.

Tortillas

Tortillas are a necessary component of flank steak fajitas. I like to use flour tortillas, but you can use any type that you like. If you’re looking for a healthier option, you can always use whole wheat tortillas.

To make the perfect tortillas, you’ll want to heat them up until they’re soft and pliable. This will help them hold all of the delicious fillings without falling apart.

Seasoning

The seasoning is what really makes these flank steak fajitas special. I like to use a simple blend of seasoning salt and sea salt. This is a quick and easy way to season your steak for a quick meal.

If you want to kick things up a notch, you can also add some chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, and diced jalapeños to the mix. This will give the fajitas a little bit of heat without being too overwhelming.
