Didn't care much for this. Was looking for a fajita like in a restaurant and got a saucy funny tasting beef dish instead.

Good recipe. I was looking for a replacement to the store bought fajita seasoning packets all the msg and chemicals yuck. I used lime juice instead of the lemon and was pleased with the results....

Yum Yum Yum. I added lime zest and juice as well with the lemon zest and juice. Also added fresh cilantra with the chopped onions.

What a gorgeous combination! I sliced the beef and put it in an airtight container to marinate overnight. The flavors really permeated the meat. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

These were really good! A little too lemony for my taste so next time I think I will leave the zest out, but other than that they were fantastic!

Really good, I followed someone elses suggestion and left the steak whole and grilled it. I used the other half of the marinade on the peppers and onions. It was all very tasty!
