What’s the best steak to use in this Sheet Pan Fajitas?

Skirt, rump or flank steak are great cuts for fajitas. Skirt steak (pictured), is especially good. It’s more tender and flavorful than flank and can be cooked well done – if you prefer it well done – without getting chewy and tough. Flank steak is more lean and is better cooked rare to medium.

How do I get tender beef strips?

The marinade will help tenderize the meat, but for super melt in the mouth steak you need to cut across the grain.

To do this, slice the meat perpendicular to (across) the grain of the meat. The grain of the meat refers to the direction that the muscle fibers are running on a piece of meat. The grain of the meat is easier to identify in cuts of meat with more sinew—like skirt, flank and hanger steak.

Recipe notes and tips

  • Use a preheated oven.
  • If you prefer more heat add more chili powder and some red chili flakes.
  • You can save time by slicing the vegetables the night before.
  • Add up to 5 more minutes if needed to finish cooking the meat to your preference.
  • If you like tortillas with char marks, warm them on the stove if you have a gas range.
  • You can serve this straight from the sheet pan, saves on washing up and make it more fun!
  • Portion up into container, with some rice, for a great meal prep idea.
