It may sound funny but I fall in love with steak fajita from its photograph which I saw long time ago. The term Fajita is referred to any grilled meat that is usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. Steak fajita is one of my favorite dishes for lunch or dinner but I will not go to any restaurant to get it. In contrast, I prefer the steak fajita homemade because nothing is better than homemade meals. Check this homemade steak fajita recipe.
For Fajita Seasoning
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon sugar

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
For Steak Fajitas

1. Combine all ingredients to make seasoning in a small bowl and store in an airtight container.

5. Return the strips and any juices from your cutting board to the skillet and squeeze in the juice from the lime wedges. Cook for 3 minutes.
