beef fajitas on a stick


  • 1 pound Beef Top Sirloin Steak boneless, cut 1 inch thick
  • 1/3 cup prepared Italian dressing
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 green or red bell peppers, each cut into quarters
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 flour tortillas (8 to 10-inch diameter), warmed
  • prepared salsa


Soak eight 9-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain.

Meanwhile cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/2-inch thick strips. Thread beef, weaving back and forth, evenly onto skewers.

Combine dressing and lime juice in small bowl. Brush onto bell peppers, onions and beef. Place vegetables on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 12 to 15 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.

About 10 minutes before vegetables are done, place beef skewers on grid with vegetables. Grill beef, uncovered, about 7 to 9 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove beef from skewers; season with salt. Serve with vegetables and salsa, as desired, in tortillas.
