  • 1.5 pounds of flank steak or skirt steak

  • 3 bell peppers (a mix of colors), sliced

  • 1 large onion, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the marinade:

  • 1/4 cup of lime juice

  • 1/4 cup of olive oil

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon of cumin

  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a bowl, mix together all the marinade ingredients. Place the steak in a large zip-top bag and pour the marinade over it. Seal the bag and make sure the steak is well-coated with the marinade. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible.

  2. When you're ready to cook, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers and onion, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until they're tender and slightly caramelized. Remove the vegetables from the skillet and set them aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil and heat it over high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade (discard the remaining marinade) and add it to the skillet. Cook the steak for about 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until it's cooked to your desired level of doneness.

  4. Remove the steak from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, slice it against the grain into thin strips.
