Weeknight Summer Dinner in a Pinch: Steak Fajita Salad

July 05, 2010


Since summer began, things seem (and are) busier than ever. Trying to work at home with 3 kids is always a challenge. Some days, dinnertime becomes a last minute thought. This recipe for Steak Fajita Salad is one of my “in a pinch” recipes. My kids love these, and they wrap the steak and vegetables in flour tortillas. I serve mine over lettuce (trying to skip the carbs). I dollop mine with nonfat Greek yogurt for some extra protein and a great substitute for sour cream.

Note: for the Fajitas seasoning, I used McCormick.

Fajita Steak Salad

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 7 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
13/4 pound hanger steak, cut into 1-inch pieces
4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 (1.12-ounce) package fajitas seasoning
6 cups romaine lettuce leaves
1 cup each thinly sliced red and green peppers
1 large tomato, sliced
1/2 purple onion, thinly sliced
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 Greek Yogurt or light sour cream, salsa, chopped fresh cilantro
1. Place steak in a large shallow dish. Drizzle lime juice over steak and sprinkle evenly with fajita seasoning; let stand at least 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. If you have time, cover and marinate in the refrigerator up to 8 hours.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steak 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often until beef is browned. Add peppers, tomatoes and onion and cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until tender.

3. Serve steak and vegetables over lettuce leaves (or flour tortillas). Top with black beans and desired toppings. Serve immediately.

Are there other names for "hanger" steak? London broil?

I love this kind of quick meal. Summertime, while I love being able to spend more time with the kids, definitely makes dinner prep more challenging.

It worked great with Hanger Steak. The kids ate every bit.

Yum, this sounds easy and delish -- my favorite kind of meal! Summer has been so busy here too (doesn't it get crazy working from home?!). Thanks for the great dinner salad!
