Sizzling skillets sure sound like fun, until you get oil splatter all over your shirt! Suvie’s super simple steak fajitas recipe is an easy way to get your fajita fix without having to fix your shirt. We use a pre-cut shaved beef from the grocery store (like what you would use for Philly cheesesteaks) to maximize our marinade and produce a tender steak with minimal effort, but you can always swap in a whole steak and slice it after the cook is completed. Pre-sliced peppers and onions make putting this meal together an absolute breeze. Wrap up some flour tortillas in foil and place them in the sauce warming zone for piping hot tortillas. Top it all off with a quick lime crema that adds creaminess and a little zing to this build your own adventure.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shaved beef
  • 1 lb sliced peppers and onions
  • 2 tbsp dry chipotle garlic seasoning*
  • 2 limes
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 8 flour tortillas

*note: if you don’t have a chipotle garlic seasoning you can just use a generous helping of salt and fresh ground black pepper. If you have a little garlic powder or garlic salt you can add a pinch of that as well

Instructions

Combine the shaved beef, chipotle garlic seasoning, and juice from 1 lime in a vacuum seal or zip lock bag.

Put the sliced peppers and onions in a Suvie pan and place in the upper left cooking zone. Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and place in the lower left cooking zone.

Fill the reservoir with water and enter the My Cook settings. Set to cook now or schedule.

Wine Pairing

Steak pairs beautifully with full-bodied reds. Try pairing this meal with a glass of Argentinian Malbec or a Cabernet Sauvignon.
