Directions

  1. Combine the steak, tequila, and lime juice in a plastic bag; marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Discard the marinade.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  3. Grill steak until no longer pink on the inside, about 8 minutes per side. Remove from grill and slice into 1/4-inch strips. Arrange strips on a serving plate.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, salt, and paprika to the oil and stir. When the mixture is hot, add the onions and peppers and cook until the peppers are tender. Pour the mixture over the steak strips and serve immediately.

I used the recipe primarily for the onions and peppers (for another beef recipe), and they were tasty. But, they were very oily. I doubled the peppers and onions, and there was still too much oil. They have a slightly sweet flavor with the addition of the liquid smoke, so if you like that sort of thing, this recipe is for you!

The peppers and onions make this dish. I was a little leary of all that liquid smoke so I only added about 2 tsp. maybe a little more. As others did, I cut the oil way down. Didn't use the tequila b/c I didn't have any. Added fresh minced garlic to the marinade.

We often use this recipe to utilize leftovers as fajitas. We take whatever meat we grilled the night before and slice it thinly. Then, we use the tequila/lime juice/sauce/veggie portion of the recipe to make veggies. Once that's done we toss the meat in the tequila/lime juice/sauce/veggie and put it in a tortilla with rice, sour cream, salsa, and cheese. It's AMAZING!!! This spice combo is delicious.
