TIPS FOR MAKING STEAK BITE FAJITA BOWLS:

  • I recommend using sirloin, flat iron or flank steak for this recipe. Skirt steak or hanger steak can also be used in this recipe. Just make sure to cut the meat against the grain. This will ensure the meat stays tender. 
  • I make my own seasoning for this but you could absolutely substitute with a packet of fajita seasoning mix.
  • Double this recipe easily to serve more people.
  • I like to serve these steak bites over rice. However, you can serve these in tortillas, over cauliflower rice, in pasta, in taco bowls, etc.
  • Smoked paprika is used. If you do not have that or can’t find it, Mexican paprika or regular paprika will also work in a pinch.
  • The longer you marinate, the more tender and more flavorful the chunks will be. Add a bit oil to the marinade if you want to marinate for a longer time in the refrigerator. Use a plastic ziptop bag or a large bowl and cover with a plastic wrap.

HOW TO STORE:

  • Allow steak fajitas to cool down completely at room temperature  – but no longer than 2 hours. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Store steak in the freezer without the bell peppers. Bell peppers lose their texture after they’ve been cooked then frozen. When you are ready to eat, sauté a new batch of bell peppers and add to steak.
  • Steak bites will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  • Steak must be defrosted completely before reheating. To reheat, add a bit of vegetable or beef stock to give moisture and juiciness back to the steak.
