It's no surprise around here I love a good sheet pan meal. I've got one pan greek chicken, sheet pan honey garlic shrimp and a classic sheet pan sausage and veggies.
I love them because they're so easy to make and you only have one pan and the end of it when you're ready to clean up! Easy and healthy dinner recipes are great ones in my book. And these sheet pan steak fajitas are exactly that!
All you need are some peppers, onions, steak and spices for this easy weeknight meal. Then take them to the next leve with a dollop of avocado crema.
This recipe calls for flank steak or skirt steak because you can use them interchangeably in most recipes. They're both long, flat, lean, and benefit from a marinade. Ready this flank steak substitute guide for 3 more steak options that would work well in these beef fajitas.
What kind of beef do you use for fajitas?
Traditionally steak fajitas are made with a skirt steak or flank steak, so that's what we're using here! They're long, flat, and known for their flavor! Because it's so flavorful you don't have to marinade the steak very long, only a few minutes! It's very similar to a flank steak. Because of that, you can use those cuts of beef interchangeably in this recipe, but I recommend the skirt steak if you can get it!

Thank you so much, Gloria!
I never leave these replies but seeing as I make this at least once a month I figured it was time! This is a great recipe, especially love how simple the seasoning is (seriously, I do this often enough that I have those memorized) and can swap out steak for chicken depending on what’s on sale that week. Works well with hard corn taco shells too (have recently discovered some soft tortillas by Promise Gluten Free that work well! Highly recommend)
