I had some sirloin that I had to use up and couldn't find a recipe that I liked, so I made one up! I didn't have any tortillas to make traditional fajitas so I just put them on a stick! I use the fajita marinade for lots of different recipes with any kind of meat, including shrimp and fish.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove sirloin from marinade and discard marinade. Thread sirloin, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, and onion onto skewers.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until sirloin is browned and vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes per side.

I typically thread my meat separate from the veggies due to cooking time but it actually worked out nicely in this recipe. Food just seems more fun on a stick and I will make this again! Read More
