Last Steak

Last night I wanted to use the remaining defrosted steak to create something different. I also needed it to feed 2 people. I resolved to make a version of steak fajitas that only required the ingredients I had on hand. I usually make pepper steak, so this is similar but includes lemon (or lime) and leaves out the tomato paste.

I cut the steak into strips and seasoned them with salt, pepper and oregano. I sautéed them with olive oil and added some lemon juice. I also briefly sautéed plenty of onion and pepper slices in olive oil and afterwards added them to the pan with the steak strips to absorb their flavor. It was so effortless to make, yet the lemon juice combined with the steak juices and spices gave the meal such a complex flavor that was unexpected. Next time I’m going to try it with lime juice!

Have you been pleasantly surprised by a meal you improvised? Please share!


  1. looks and sound fantastic! i'll have to keep it in mind.

  2. I make my chicken fajitas very similarly. The only difference is that I mix my lime juice with a little bit of honey (1tsp-ish). Seems to help the juice stick to the veges.

    Yum!!! Making it tonight!

    Good luck on REG. I start studying for FAR today and test on 2/27. Yikes!

  3. That sounds good Debra!

    Thanks! Good luck on FAR!
