Steak Frajitas

steak frajitas (freezer meal)

who says you can’t do freezer cooking in the summertime? This pre-marinated entree can be pan-seared or grilled outdoors. Pair it with refried beans for a hearty, easy meal.

Ingredients

1 Pound sirloin steak
2 Tablespoon lime juice
2 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon salad oil
1 Teaspoon oregano, dried
2   garlic cloves, crushed
6   flour tortillas
1   frozen vegetables, fajita mix
1⁄2 Cup salsa

Instructions

Place steak in quart-sized freezer bag; combine lime juice, white wine vinegar, salad oil, oregano, and crushed garlic cloves; add to meat.

Freeze. To bundle: Steak/marinade mixture; flour tortillas; frozen vegetables.

To prepare: Thaw steak in marinade. Remove steak and pan-sear in hot pan. Cook until medium rare; remove from pan. In the same pan, add frozen vegetables and marinade; cover and cook until vegetables are crisp-tender.

While vegetables are cooking, slice meat into thin slices against the grain. Add to cooked vegetables. Add salsa to meat and vegetables; heat through.

To serve, spoon into warmed flour tortilla; garnish with avocado cubes, chopped tomato or fresh cilantro.

 

Note:  The marinade for this was really good!  We will make this again and when we do we will make extra to freeze.  Instead of frozen veggies we used left over thinly sliced red peppers, green peppers and red onions.  We don’t have a nice cast iron pan so we used our electric wok to stir fry the meat and veggies and it came out great.  We served with a Mexican 4 cheese blend, sour cream, salsa, diced tomatoes, and black beans.
