How to Make Traditional Fajitas
1Whisk together line juice, soy sauce, 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, and pepper in a large ziplock bag or non-metal dish.
2Marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
3When steak has marinated, cut meat into 1/2 inch strips.
4On hot grill, grill strips until almost done. Scoot meat to one side of the grill.
5In skillet, bring remaining marinade to a boil. Reduce heat and add peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Cook until crisp/cooked. Optional: cook the veggies on the grill with a drizzle of olive oil.
6Serve on warm tortillas, combining meat, veggies, and your favorite toppings.
7If you want to use chicken instead of beef, replace the soy sauce with double strength chicken boullion.
