Steak Fajitas Tonight!

Pan-searing...
This was a GREAT dinner tonight...one of those meals that makes you look like you know what you are doing and looks so effortless:) I got this recipe from http://www.organizedhome.com/; tweaked it a bit to fit my needs. Defrosted meat in microwave a little and added some black beans, spanish rice, sour cream and salsa. Hubby loved them! Tip: undercook your steak the first time because you end up re-heating and it cooks a little more. This way your meat won't turn out tough.
Steak Fajitas
2lb sirloin steak (when on sale this makes this meal super cheap!)
4 T lime juice
4T white wine vinegar
2 T salad oil
2 t oregano, dried
4 garlic cloves, crushed (I always used minced...buy a big jar at winco and it lasts a long time!)
12 flour tortillas (freeze them in your ziploc along with meat and veggies, that way everything is there)
2 frozen vegetables, fajita mix (I used one small bag)
1 c salsa

Place steak in quart-sized freezer bag; combine lime juice, white wine vinegar, salad oil, oregano, and crushed garlic cloves; Slice meat against the grain then add meat.
Pan-sear meat until medium rare. Let cool then put in ziploc bag.
FREEZE: to bundle; steak/marinade mixture; flour tortillas; frozen vegetables.
To prepare; Thaw steak in marinade (I defrosted for 12 mins) Remove steak and pan-sear in hot pan until warm all the way through. Remove from pan, add frozen veggies and marinade; cover and cook until veggies are crisp-tender. Put meat back in pan and add salsa heat-through.
Enjoy dinner!
