How to Make Steak Fajitas

- He marinates the steak in fresh lime juice for 30 minutes.
- Then, he adds a spicy chili rub of lime zest, salt, sugar, black pepper, chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, and cinnamon
- To go with the steak, he grills up colorful bell peppers and red onion. Sizzle, sizzle!
- Then, he grills until perfection, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Don’t over cook the steak or it will be tough.
- After you remove the steak from the grill let it rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.
- Then Josh cuts the steak into strips and assembles the steak fajitas, including tons of yummy toppings.
