If you've been reading Finding Joy in My Kitchen for a while, you likely noticed we don't eat a lot of Mexican cuisine. So, imagine my surprise when my hubby said -- "You, know, I think I'd like some fajitas".
Picking. Jaw. Off. The. Floor.
My non-Mexican food enjoying husband just requested Mexican.
I decided to go simple... and what do you know - simple was pretty tasty!
Steak Fajitas - Finding Joy in My Kitchen
1 lb steak, cut into strips
1/8 C beef broth
4 medium bell peppers, sliced thin
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced (optional)
2 garlic cloves, minced
Cheddar cheese, shredded
Place steak, broth, fajita seasoning in a crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4ish hours until meat is tender and internal temperature is hot enough.
When meat is ready, saute sliced peppers in a bit of olive oil. Add in mushrooms and galrlic and saute until mushrooms are tender.
Serve steak on wrapped in a tortilla with sauteed veggies. Top with cheese.
We really enjoyed this recipe, and the leftovers! For me, what made the dish, was the slow-cooked beef. It was so nice and tender, it made the fajitas easy to chew and almost melt-in-your-mouth!!
