One glance at the simplicity of these ingredients and I knew it was going to be a winner. We used flank steak which I marinated for, oh, a good 5 or 6 hours. Gave it a quick sear, a nice rest, and then sliced on the bias. We served with avocado, grilled onions, and Pico de Gallo with refried beans and Mexican Rice on the side. Simple, filling and absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for recipe. UPDATE: I just had to pop in to reiterate how much we love this marinade! We make it at least once every couple of weeks. Thanks again!

This recipe has an excellent marinade for the beef. It turned out full of flavor. The only thing I added were big onion slices and red pepper when I was cooking the meat. Omitted the salsa and cheese because the meat and veggies had so much flavor I didn't think this fajitas needed anything else.

Good basic lime fajita marinade. If you don't a like lime, garlic, and cilantro combination then you shouldn't make it. Instead go spend a buck on a fajita marinade packet at the grocery store that will taste like taco seasoning! The only reason I took a star away from the recipe is that if your going to use a good cut of beef such as New York Steak, marinate the steak before slicing, grill the steak to your personal preference, and then slice thinly on the bias and against the grain.
