We have some great cattle ranches in Eastern Oregon that produce some of the best beef. My husband and son’s favorite meal are Fajita’s so I got a beautiful piece of flat iron steak. We were recently at the RAM restaurant and had a really good rice with corn so here is my attempt at that for a side dish for my steak fajita’s. So skip the chicken tonight and have some beef…….
In a large size Ziploc bag combine all the ingredients. Marinade in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Drain off marinade. Heat a flat top grill or skillet on medium-high, drizzle with olive oil and add the steak. Sear the steak on both sides, 5 minutes each side. After the steak is seared, remove and let set for 5 minutes.
Toss the onions and green peppers with 1 tbsp olive oil and place on grill, stirring often. After 5 minutes cut the steak into thin slices and return to the grill or skillet and cook until medium-well. Serve on a warm tortilla shell with shredded cheese and sour cream. You can also serve them with avocados, tomatoes and lettuce.
