Crockpot Steak Fajitas

beeffajitas

We’ve had some skirt steak sitting in the freezer for a couple of months, so I decided to try my hand at making fajitas with this stuff. The meat can tend to be a little tough, so I figured the crockpot would help. I kind of made this recipe up in my head, so it was a big experimen! Luckily, these were very flavorful, and while the meat wasn’t super tender, it was much better than just cooking it on a skillet and serving it!

Crockpot Steak Fajitas

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. skirt steak, cut into strips
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil (divided)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • salt & pepper

Directions:

  1. Add 1 tbsp. oil to a skillet on medium-high and allow it to heat up. Add steak pieces in with the taco seasoning and brown them. Don’t fully cook the pieces, but give it a little sear.
  2. In a 2 qt. crockpot, add the water, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Add the seared steak and leftover oil.
  3. Cook on low for 2.5 – 3 hours.
  4. After the meat is cooked, add oil and a tsp. each of salt and pepper to a skillet and cook down onions and bell peppers on medium-high.
  5. Toss in meat with 3 tbsp. seasoned liquid from the crockpot and cook the mixture for another 2-3 minutes or until the majority of the liquid has cooked off.

Serve with warmed soft tortillas and other toppings! Enjoy!
