Ingredient List


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Old El Paso™ Smoky BBQ Seasoning Mix for Fajitas
  • 3 rump steaks (200g each)
  • 1 onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Stand 'N' Stuff™ Soft Flour Tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons Old El Paso™ Thick ‘N’ Chunky Salsa

To Serve

  • Lime wedges


  1. Mix the oil and fajita seasoning mix in a large shallow dish. Add the steaks and turn to coat in the mixture. Add the onion and peppers and toss until evenly coated in seasoning mix.
  2. Heat a large cast-iron griddle pan over a high heat. Add the steaks and cook for 6-8 minutes, turning once, until seared and internal temperature is a minimum of 63ºC. Remove from the pan, cover and set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and peppers to the hot pan and cook for 2-3 minutes over a high heat until lightly charred, turning occasionally.
  4. Meanwhile, warm the tortillas according to the pack instructions.
  5. Thinly slice the steaks and toss together with the onion and peppers. Divide between the warmed tortillas. Top each with a spoonful of salsa and serve with lime wedges, to squeeze.

Expert Tips

  • The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the steaks.
    You can cook the steaks on the edges of a hot barbecue and the pepper and onion mix on a foil tray on the barbecue for an al fresco supper.
