My mom told me about using the seasoned steak strips available at Costco (they come in a big bag, refrigerated but not frozen, with two separate sealed bags of steak strips inside) in fajitas, and they are DELICIOUS. I can't remember who makes them, but I'll let you know when I get some more.
Although I have to tell you that when I was at Costco, I also couldn't remember who made them. So my sister and I called my mom, and she couldn't remember who made them. So we just looked for them, and found them. So you can, too. Seasoned steak strips. Big bag.
(I've also seen Tyson seasoned steak strips at regular grocery stores. I don't know what they taste like, but you could try them.) If you also use frozen peppers, you can make fajitas with almost no prep.
This is a good recipe to memorize in case you're at the grocery store and can't think of anything else to make. :)
- bag of seasoned steak strips
- bag of frozen red, yellow, and green bell peppers
- one yellow onion, sliced (you want big circles, not chopped squares)
- tortillas (I use Mission flour tortillas, fajita size)
- sour cream
Cook the seasoned steak strips in a bit of cooking oil according to the package directions. (I think it's for six minutes.) Remove the meat and cook the peppers and onion together in a bit of oil until soft. (I overcooked them this time because people were in my kitchen talking to me and I can't multitask, but they were still good.) Serve with warm flour tortillas and sour cream.
My family gobbles this right up. :)
