Ingredient List

  • 2 x 225g sirloin steaks (each at least 1.5cm thick)
  • 1/2 pack Old El Paso™ Smoky BBQ Seasoning Mix for Fajitas
  • 1 large onion, thickly sliced
  • 1 large red pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Stand 'N' Stuff Soft Flour Tortillas
  • 1 avocado, peeled, halved, stoned and diced

To Serve

  • Soured cream
  • Lime wedges


  1. Sprinkle both side of the steaks generously with the fajita seasoning, pressing it gently into the flesh. Leave for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat a large cast iron griddle pan over a very high heat. Cook the steaks in the hot pan for 3-5 minutes on each side, until charred and cooked to your liking. Transfer to a warmed plate and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and peppers to the hot griddle pan and cook for 4-5 minutes until just tender and lightly charred, turning occasionally. Meanwhile warm the flour tortillas as directed on the packaging.
  4. Transfer the steaks to a chopping board and thinly slice. Divide the steak, peppers and onion between the warmed tortillas. Top with the avocado. Serve with soured cream and lime wedges to squeeze.
