Beef Steak Fajitas

A restaurant favorite that is easy at home. Start with some sirloin, marinade in ingredients you probably already have at home, fry up some veggies and the meat. Then impress your family with your new specialty of the house.
1) Start with about a pound of sirloin steak. I had 1 1/4 pounds. Trim well and cut into strips about 1/4 inch thick.
2) Mix marinade ingredients in a 1 gallon zip lock bag.
Add the beef, mix well and seal after removing as much air as possible.
Refrigerate for a least an hour and longer if possible. I got 5 hours
but overnight would have been fine.
When ready to cook. Put 1 T oil in a large cast iron pan and heat over
medium high heat. While heating, slice up a large onion and one or two
peppers. I like a medium red and green pepper. If your pepper is large,
you only need one.
5) When oil is hot,
add the veggies and after a few minutes add a couple of tablespoons of
the marinade from the meat for flavor (optional). When onions are nicely
browned (about 8-9 minutes), Remove from pan and set aside and cover.
6) Add a little oil back to the pan, increase the heat to high and added the drained beef and cook until browned. About 8-10 minutes.
7) Now move the meat to one side and add the veggies back to the pan. Cook and stir for a minute or two until veggies are reheated.
Serve with heated tortillas, sour cream, guacamole and anything else
you like. An easy way to heat tortillas is sprinkle a dish towel with
some water, put tortillas inside and heat in a microwave on high for one
