Steak Fajita Seasoning Recipe

Since fajitas are such a simple dish, these steak fajitas definitely need a fajita seasoning blend that you really love.

You can use store-bought fajita seasoning – or I’m suggesting one I really love below.

Some fajita seasonings use up to 1 tsp of sugar in them – I don’t love sugar in my fajita seasoning mix, so I skip it – but you can add anywhere from 1/2 – 1 tsp white sugar if you’d like!

Steak Fajita Seasoning

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

How To Make Steak Fajitas Sizzle

To present this recipe as sizzling fajitas, like your favorite restaurant, you will need to make a little bit of modifications – but it’s really simple!

  • First off, you’ll want to NOT cook your fajitas in a cast iron skillet – but you will still need a cast iron pan. Pop it in the oven as high as your oven will go as you cook your fajitas in another pan – we will be presenting them in the scorching hot cast iron – but cooking the fajitas in another pan.
  • Toss steak in fajita spices and cook them in a separate pan on the stovetop.
  • When steak is cooked through, and pan in the oven is SCORCHING hot, carefully remove cast iron from oven and place on a trivet or other safe and sturdy surface.
  • Working quickly (carefully!) add sliced peppers and onions to pan, then place steak over it.
  • Quickly pour 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp oil into the pan – it will start sizzling just like at a restaurant!
  • Let vegetables cook as the sizzling dies down, serve, and wow your guests with a sizzling plate of fajitas!

Ingredients

  • Fajita Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Steak Fajitas
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or other high heat oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 lb stir fry steak strips
  • 1 white onion sliced into half rounds
  • 1 bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 3 cloves garlic diced
  • 1 jalapeno sliced
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 2 oz lime juice

Instructions

Steak Fajita Seasoning

  • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch, chili powder, salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and cumin and mix well.
  • Set aside.

Steak Fajitas

  • Season steak strips generously with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet on medium until extremely hot (but not smoking).
  • Add oil to pan and swirl around until shimmery.
  • Add steak to pan and let brown, stirring often. Steak should cook quickly if heat is high enough, so stir often to prevent sticking or burning.
  • When steak is browned (after about 2 minutes) – but not cooked through – add onions and peppers.
  • Let steak, peppers, and onions cook until vegetables are browned and soft and steak is cooked through, about 4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle seasoning mix over chicken and vegetables and stir to coat, adding lime juice to help coat. Add up to 2 tbsp water if needed to spread seasoning more evenly.
  • Turn off heat and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve immediately.
