Skillet Steak Fajitas - Mediterranean Baby (4)

These skillet steak fajitas are the perfect weeknight meal.   They can be whipped together in no time at all and simply require a few fresh ingredients, spices, and your trusty old caste iron skillet.  I think this recipe is the perfect example of why keeping fresh ingredients on hand can really help you create flavorful, nutritious meals for your family that you can spend more time enjoying than preparing.   As an added bonus, if you’re counting carbs and getting ready for swimsuit season, simply omit the tortillas like I did.  There’s plenty of goodness in this dish!

Skillet Steak Fajitas

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. sirloin steak, sliced into strips
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. fresh spinach
  • 6 oz. fresh button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. taco seasoning (I use Wildtree because it's all natural and low sodium)
  • 1/2 tsp. cracked red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

In a medium bowl combine steak strips, 1 tbsp. taco seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Over medium heat, warm your caste iron skillet. When hot, add seasoned steak and 1 tbsp. olive oil.

Sear the steak, creating a dark crust on the outside of the meat.

Careful not to overcook your meat, remove the steak from the skillet and set aside.

Add garlic, onion, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and remaining olive oil to the skillet for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently to move all of the veggies around the pan.

Return the steak to the skillet and add remaining taco seasoning and red pepper flakes.

Add the spinach and remove the pan from the heat as soon as the spinach begins to wilt.

Add fresh lime juice.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve as a stand alone dish or with tortillas.
