- 3 rump steaks (200g each)
- 1 onion, cut into thin wedges

- 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.
- 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.
- Add the onion and peppers to the hot pan and cook for 2-3 minutes over a high heat until lightly charred, turning occasionally.
- Meanwhile, warm the tortillas according to the pack instructions.
- 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.
- 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.
