➤ Becky’s Tips:
- To ensure the steak is sliced thinly against the grain, look for the lines running through the meat and slice perpendicular to them.
- Don’t overcrowd the pan when cooking the steak, as it will result in steaming rather than browning. Cook the steak in batches if necessary.
- Use a cast-iron skillet for the best results. It retains heat well and creates a delicious char on the vegetables and steak.
Leftover steak fajitas can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. To reheat, simply heat them up in a skillet over medium-high heat until they’re warmed through.
