Minute Steaks are great for fajita’s, they are the cheapest steak cut and lend themselves well to being cooked in small strips.
Slice 0.5kg steak into very thin strips (tenderise first if preferred). Toss strips in a paprika, chilli powder, cumin and oregano mix. Heat 1 tsp of oil and sauté beef, adding more spice to taste. When beef is cooked remove steak. Add another tsp of oil, 1 chopped onion and 1 or 2 red/yellow peppers. Sauté the mixture until preferred crispness. Return steak to pan and warm through quickly. To assemble a fajita, put mixture in warm tortillas and add sauces etc and wrap them up.
