Primal Steak Fajitas

Primal Steak Fajitas

I've discussed my love/hate relationship with Mexican food in past blog posts, and the saga continues today. We recently went out to eat at Chili's, and I can still vividly remember the sizzle of the fajitas brought to the table beside me. Well, that sizzle inspired this GREAT fajita recipe that's sure to become a regular menu item in my household.

This is great with or without tortillas. I made some tortillas from Stupid Easy Paleo that took no time at all, and use things found in most Primal/Paleo households!

Primal Steak Fajitas


  • 1 Pound Uncooked Steak (I used petite sirloins I had in the freezer)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 3 Limes
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 1 Tsp Oregano
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • Primal/Paleo Tortillas (I used this recipe from Stupid Easy Paleo)*
  • Avocado / Guacamole*
  • Tomato / Salsa*

*Optional Items for Serving


1. Cut onions and peppers into strips

2. Combine juice from the limes, coconut oil, chili powder, cumin, sea salt, black pepper, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes in a mixing bowl

3. Add steaks, onions, peppers, and marinade to covered dish or Ziploc bag - shake in marinade

4. Allow everything to marinate for 2-6 hours

5. Separate the steak from the onions and peppers; set steak aside

6. Saute the onions and peppers over MED heat

7. Cook steak via desired method - I used a cast iron skillet and cooked over MED-HIGH heat for 4 minutes each side

8. Serve onions and peppers in one dish, meat in the other, and enjoy! Again, feel free to include Primal/Paleo tortilla option, avocado, salsa, etc.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! This is recipe was created in a day, not that I want to brag which I do, but I'm more proud of myself for thinking so quickly to overcome my procrastination!
