Steak Fajitas + 5 Dinner Ideas

steak fajitas

School has just started and the kids in my neighbourhood were all smiling when walking to the bus on Tuesday. Some parents are happy, but for others, they are not looking forward to those crazy, busy nights. Some are anxious about planning dinner and making sure they are ready to feed the family on time. It is a challenge to be creative in the kitchen. Some nights you just want to make something quick and easy. These Steak Fajitas might be the solution.

When we do fajitas nights, I like to put everything on the table and everyone can make their own wraps.

For my recipe I started by covering the beef top sirloin steak with a dry rub of chili and cumin. Then I cooked the steak into a bit of oil and deglazed my pan with lime juice and soya sauce. We like our fajitas with onions and peppers that are sautéed in a pan.

For those busy nights here are 5 dinner recipes your family will ask you to make again:
-Beef and Beans Enchiladas
-Chicken Burgers
-BBQ Chicken Pizza
-Ground Chicken Sloppy Joes
-The Best Meat Lasagna
