What You'll Need

  • 8 ounces flank steak, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen fajita vegetables (bell pepper and onion strips), thawed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (4-inch) whole wheat pitas, cut in half

What to Do

  1. Freeze meat about 30 minutes. Slice thinly across grain into bite-size strips and place in resealable plastic bag.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together lime juice, garlic, and oil. Add mixture to plastic bag and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours; drain.
  3. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, cook vegetables, cumin and pepper until tender, stirring occasionally, adding more cooking spray as needed. Remove vegetables from skillet. Add beef to hot skillet and cook about 2 to 3 minutes, or until fork-tender, stirring occasionally. Do not overcook.
  4. Return vegetables to skillet and heat through. Spoon mixture into pita bread halves and serve.
