These flavorful BEEF FAJITAS are tender beef marinated in a delicious sauce, and cooked with peppers and onions for a fantastic and delicious meal!
Fajitas are one of the greatest culinary inventions of all time. Flavorful, delicious, totally easy to customize. I mean, what more could you ask for?
Fajitas these days come in a ton of different flavors and options and protein options, but for today’s recipe we are going classic beef fajitas. Perfectly marinated and totally tender, with slightly charred veggies make these the best classic fajitas you will ever eat.
Sometimes when I get fajitas in a restaurant I am disappointed because the meat is not tender enough, or there aren’t enough tortillas and toppings. That will not be the case with this awesome meal. You marinate the beef for a few hours, and it tenderizes it.
And you get to control the number of tortillas and garnish! Fill it as full as you want.
Are you drooling yet?
