  • Cast iron skillet, or fajita pans


  • 1 pound steak skirt, flat iron, sirloin
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil plus more for cooking
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 lime juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 green bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 sweet yellow onion thinly sliced
  • tortillas for serving
  • sour cream for serving
  • avocado slices or guacamole for serving
  • shredded cheese for serving
  • salsa or Pico de Gallo for serving
  • cilantro for serving
  • lime wedges for serving


  • In a large zipper bag, add olive oil, lime juice, oregano, cumin, and chili powder. Coat steak in mixture and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, and up to 4 hours. 
  • Heat grill to medium-high. Place fajita pans, or cast-iron skillet, directly on hot grill and coat with a thin layer of olive oil. Add peppers and onion, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are soft and slightly charred, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Remove steak from marinade and season both sides with salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook to just slight shy of how you like your steak, as it will cook a bit more when you add it to the hot skillet with the veggies. Let steak rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain into strips. Add sliced steak to skillet with veggies. 
  • Serve with warm tortillas and toppings of choice.
