Recommendations for Making this Steak Fajita Recipe into a Bowl

The key to an incredible steak recipe is starting with top-quality Certified Angus Beef.  I used strip steaks for this recipe because they have a lot of marbling, which makes them a tender steak.  I think they’re the best steak for fajitas.

Angus cows are a specific breed – not a brand.  So you may see “Angus” beef in your meat case but that doesn’t mean it’s the same quality.  Only the best Angus beef earns the Certified Angus Beef ® brand.

To earn the Certified Angus Beef logo, beef must pass 10 quality standards for mouthwatering flavor, tenderness and juiciness. When you see the logo you know you’re getting the absolute best.

When picking your steak, look for steaks that are the same width from top to bottom. This ensures even cooking and that you are getting a center cut.

What Temperature Should Steak Be?

  • Rare should be 125 degrees
  • Medium Rare 135 degrees
  • Medium, 145 degrees
  • Medium Well 150 degrees
  • Well Done 160 degrees.

To make sure your steak is cooked to your desired doneness, invest in a good meat thermometer.

Preparing your Grilled Steak Fajita Bowls

To really amp up the flavor of these bowls, you should use my homemade Steak Fajita Seasoning.  It’s easy to make and really gives great flavor to the peppers and onions.

Expert Tips for Making the Best Grilled Steak Fajitas

  • Steak Prep: Make sure that you give the steak at least the two hours to marinate, this allow the steak to absorb all the flavors, most importantly, make sure you allow the steak to rest before cutting so all the juices return to the meat.
  • Season it Up: The Homemade Fajita Spice is amazing. So give the finished meal a dash or two to up the flavor.
  • Add Some Different Vegetables: Don’t be afraid to mix up your vegetables, mushrooms, zucchini sticks or a kick from pickled Jalapeno peppers would be great.
  • Cheese: I love a little Cheese on my fajitas, try Queso Fresco, Cheddar or Queso Panela.
