How To Make Sizzling Steak Fajitas

Fajitas are a great, versatile Tex-Mex dish. The dish can be made with chicken, pork, beef, with seafood like shrimp or even just vegetables. This sizzling dish was actually created in the U.S., although it often gets lumped in with Mexican dishes. If you’re looking to feed the whole family, fajitas can be a fun and quick dish to mix up the menu. Each member of your family can pick and choose his or her toppings, making less work for you! Marinate your protein overnight to get a deep flavor before cooking the meat. Cut the meat or fish in long, thin strips so it is are easier to eat. Cut the bell peppers and onions in thin strips as well and sauté with seasoning. Combine the meat and peppers and if you want to create a fajita bar, place them in a bowl for each of your family members to serve themselves. Serve fajitas with plenty of tortillas, cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole, lettuce and sour cream. If you like a little kick in your dish, bring out the hot sauce as well. In this video, Chef Michael will show you how to make sizzling fajitas. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
