Preparation Method

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the fajita seasonings. Reserve 1 1/2 teaspoons for the bell peppers.
  2. Make the steak marinade:
  3. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, chopped cilantro, juice from 1 lime, mustard and 4-5 teaspoons of the fajita seasonings.
  4. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the steak marinade for drizzling on the steak at the end.
  5. Pour remainder of the steak marinade into a large zip-top bag along with the steak.
  6. Press the bag to evenly distribute the marinade and allow to sit while you prepare the vegetables.
  7. Slice the onions and bell peppers.
  8. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat.
  9. Add the onions and allow to cook for about 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant.
  10. Add the bell peppers and sprinkle with the reserved 1 1/2 teaspoons of fajita seasonings.
  11. If you like the peppers with a nice crunch – cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  12. And if you like them softer, leave them on for about 3 minutes longer. Transfer and set aside on a plate.
  13. Melt butter on the same skillet and add the steak into a single layer.
  14. Allow to sear and cook for 1 to 3 minutes on each side (or more depending on how done you like your steak).
  15. Add the reserved steak marinade to the skillet and cook until just heated. Remove from heat.
  16. Assemble lettuce wraps by placing a spoonful of shrimp/vegetable filling into the center of each leaf.
  17. Top with avocado or your favorite toppings.

Enjoy it!!
