A-mAzing Fajitas

This week, i pulled out my all-time favorite cook book, the Sugar Solution Cookbook by Prevention in order to find some healthy recipes for dinner.

We like to make varieties of Mexican dishes around here. They always usually cheap and usually very yummy.

This is the best marinade I have ever tasted for Beef Fajitas. Landon and I were thrilled and made sure to place a bookmark in our cook book. This is a very cheap and easy marinade and only has to sit for 4 hours.

Here's the recipe:

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  •  2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 lb lean round tip sirloin, trimmed of all visible fat
  • 1/4 t salt

In a resealable plastic bag, combine the oil, garlic, lime juice, lime zest, and cumin. Add the sirloin and toss well to coat. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat the grill or broiler. Remove the sirloin from the marinade, reserving any leftover marinade, and sprinkle with the salt. Grill or broil 4" from the heat for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 145F for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and cover loosely with foil.

Cook your fav. fajita fixins and enjoy!
