Two sheet pan steak fajitas served with sour cream

All about the sheet pan craze you guys! Once you start it, you won’t be able to stop. Today, I’m sharing my  Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas. Can you really cook steak on a sheet pan? Sure you can! And it only takes 12-15 minutes depending on how well done you like your steak. And if you want fast cooking at a high temperate, turn the oven on broil and cook it for 8-10 minutes. It’ll be sizzling just like the fajitas you normally order at your favorite Mexican place.

What are fajitas?

Fajitas originate from Mexico – it is a dish that consists of strips of seasoned grilled meat that’s served alongside grilled vegetables. They are eaten in tortilla wraps with additional fresh toppings.

Ingredients

  • Steak: I like to use flank steak for this recipe as it’s thin and doesn’t require a long cooking time. Skirt steak will also work well. Slice it into thin strips before adding to the sheet pan.
  • Vegetables: Onions and mini peppers. The vegetables are sliced into thin rings before being cooked.
  • Lime: Lime wedges add a nice zingy freshness to the steak. I prefer lime, but you could use lemon in a pinch.
  • Seasonings: You can use a storebought taco seasoning, but I like to make my own with; cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano and corainder.
  • Oil: I use olive oil, but you can use canola or vegetable. The oil helps to keep the fajitas juicy and helps to crispy up the edges of the vegetables.
  • Chili lime sour cream: These fajitas come alive with a drizzle of this sauce. You just need sour cream, lime juice, cilantro, chili powder and garlic powder.

How to make sheet pan steak fajitas

  • Place the steak onions and peppers on to a sheet pan.
  • Season and drizzle over the oil.
  • Toss in the oil.
  • Bake and serve!

That’s 7 minutes to make fajitas for the entire family. We’ve timed this before. 😉

And here’s how the clean-up goes: Oh wait, there’s like nothing to clean up! Especially if you use an aluminum foil to line your sheet pan. You’re welcome!

Serving Suggestions

I like to serve my fajitas to the table with tortillas and toppings so that everyone can help themselves. I like to serve these fajitas with:

  • avocado
  • cilantro
  • chili lime sour cream (see recipe below)

Top tips for making This Recipe

  1. Speed up the cooking time. You can also broil the sheet pan for 8-10 minutes for faster higher-temp cooking.
  2. Make clean up a breeze. You can line the sheet pan with aluminum foil if you’d like to minimize (or eliminate!) the clean-up process.
  3. Flank steak is the preferred cut for this dish. Skirt steak will also work well and thinly sliced sirloin will also do the job.
  4. Cut the steak evenly and thinly. Place the steak in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes and this will make it easier to cut.

Frequently asked questions

What are the best tortillas to use for fajitas?

I like to use flour tortillas as they tend to be more pliable, but you can also use corn if you prefer. feel free to use whole grain tortillas too for a bit of extra goodness! Warm your tortillas before filling them.

What’s the difference between tacos and fajitas?

The main difference is that the meat is grilled along with the vegetables, where as with tacos the vegetables are often kept as raw toppings. Tacos are mainly handheld street food where as fajitas are a main meal.

What’s the best cut of steak to use?

I like to use flank steak, and skirt steak or sirloin will also work well. These are very flavorful cuts of beef that cook quickly and are perfectly tender after being baked.
