Australian Beef and Pepper Fajitas with Avocado Salsa




Fajitas are a great vehicle for build-your-own formats and catering that are easy to execute.


1 pound Australian beef strip loin, rib eye or tenderloin steak
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper 

Marinade Ingredients

juice of 2 limes
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 teaspoon dried chilies, crushed

Avocado Salsa Ingredients

1 large avocado, diced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 green chili, finely diced
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped

Fajita Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red pepper, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1 red onion, halved and sliced
6 large flour tortillas, warmed in oven


Place beef in ziplock bag and add marinade ingredients. Shake well to coat beef. Marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Discard marinade, pat meat dry and season to taste.

Combine salsa ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat oil in pan and cook beef on medium high for 3-4 minutes each side for medium rare or until springy to the touch. Transfer to a board and let stand 5-10 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain.

While beef is resting, heat remaining oil in skillet or non-stick pan on high heat and stir-fry peppers and onion until soft and slightly caramelized, about 4-5 minutes. Add beef and toss just to heat through.

Fill warm tortillas with beef and vegetables and serve with salsa, lime and cilantro. Accompany with a bottle of Mexican beer!

Chef's Note: If preferred, you can slice beef before cooking and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, or until just cooked, then add to the stir-fried vegetables.

To Serve
