Quick Marinade Steak Fajitas

What do you usually order from a Mexican Food Restaurant?! My husband and I ALWAYS split the combo fajitas and each get a frozen marg! 🙂 I never really make fajitas at home and I don’t know why because they take NO time and the skirt steak is so easy to marinade and only needs a few minutes to soak up all the deliciousness!! Sear the meat on high heat for a few minutes per side and let rest to get the perfect medium rare!! Absolute melt in your mouth deliciousness! You’ll have to try these ASAP!


  • 1 lb skirt steak
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 lime 
  • a few dashes Worcestershire 
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 tsp cumin 
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 Onion, sliced
  • 1 Green & 1 Red bell pepper, sliced


  1. Start by marinating the steak with all of the ingredients listed above minus onions & peppers. Make sure its all covered! In a large bowl or a plastic baggie. Let sit on counter while chopping veggies.
  2.  Chop onion, and peppers. Place in a hot skillet with a little bit of oil. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Let get nice and cooked down & caramelized
  3. Once grill is nice and hot, place steak directly in the center and sear for about 3 minutes. Flip and repeat! Don’t move it! 
  4. Once steak is nice and seared and done to your liking, remove it from the grill and let rest for about 10 minutes. 
  5. Cut against the grain. Serve with veggies, tortillas and all the fixings!
