What you need
Just need a few simple ingredients for this base recipe. Feel free to add and change according to your taste.
Steak – Sirloin, flank and skirt steak are great choices for this meal. Make sure to slice thin and against the grain. Skirt steak would be the number one choice because it’s very tender and flavorful.
Bell Peppers – Choose your favorite bell peppers. I like red and green for this recipe to add color.
Onions – Yellow or white work well. Slice them and then cut slices in half.
Spices – This recipe has a homemade fajita spice mix. Feel free to use a packaged spice mix or even a marinade if you have extra time.
Vegetable or Olive Oil – This helps to disperse the spices on the meat and veggies.
Sometimes I will also include sliced mushrooms in the mixture.
