Maybe it is just that wrapped food tastes good! It’s got so many layers of flavor, how could it not? Take these Steak Fajita Rolls for example. They consist of seasoned grilled veggies and loads of melty cheese all rolled up in marinated thinly sliced flank steak. Top with a squeeze of fresh lime and serve on a bed of rice and beans, this meal screams love and flavor. Maybe that should be the rolled foods motto. Love and Flavor! And toothpicks.

Grilled Steak Fajitas

I grilled my veggies up in a grill basket (like these) to prevent any of those perfectly sliced peppers and onions from falling through the grates. Grill baskets have been one of my best investments to date, I use them for everything from veggies to shrimp. Anything small enough to slip through the grate goes straight in a basket. All the grilled flavor, none of the lost food sacrificed to the grilling gods.

These steak fajita rolls were such a hit come dinner time. It’s like taco night on freakin’ steroids without the thick neck and anger issues. We all ate them different ways. One person rolled them up inside a tortilla for the ultimate steak burrito with the perfect portions of steak and onions/peppers/cheese in every bite. Another went traditional with a fork and knife, and an extra sprinkle of my SOB Rub. And yet another used the steak as the taco shell and just ate them street food style leaning over a napkin.

  1. Hey Susie! I’m tooling around the internet making connections with other bloggers attending EFC in May!

    On Saturday I bought my very first grill to call my very own! Until now I’ve left the grilling to my husband (he has a BGE) but I wanted a plain ol’ Weber charcoal grill to start with. Figured if I’m going to get serious about this food blogging thing, I need to try out all the techniques I can!

    I am going to make these fajita rolls for my husband so he will bow down to my grilling skills. I’ll let you know how they turn out, I’ve followed you on social media.

    Hope to meet you in May!

    p.s. The two checkboxes below the comment box don’t have any text next to them. Not sure if it is your mail server or a plug in or what. (Or maybe it’s just me?)

    1. Hey Heather! Nice to meet you! Sometimes you just need a classic charcoal grill so you can play with fire (that grill might be my favorite). Thanks for the heads up about the blank boxes! I just did a site redesign earlier this month and there are still a few little kinks here and there.

  2. Hey Susie. Quick question on these rolls. In the video when you go to actually roll them up it seems that they are brown already. Did you pre grill them a little first or is that just color from the marinade.

    I am using a Camp Chef Pellet grill so you say to use medium high temp. What would that be? Gonna try these tomorrow.

  3. Awesome. Thanks. We are doing these and making the BBQ’d beans and the buffalo corn today. Gonna be a long day out back with the smoker.

  4. Made these the other day along with the BBQ beans you have the recipe for. Both turned out phenominal. Thanks for the assistance.

  5. Really I would like to inform you that if u have more grill dishes plz I need to learn more about grill items and I will try to make the rolls tomorrow but if I’m used arbic Lamb will be good?

  6. I made a couple small mistakes on my first attempt. Not enough onion and finely shreaded cheese. Still comment from wife was i had out done myself. This is a great tasting simple meal.

    1. It can! I would just cook everything in a skillet until done. You can use the oven to heat them after rolling, just set it at 350, put them in and watch them to make sure they don’t over cook.

  7. I study recipes all of the time …. have several 100 saved… these are amazing and make as is. Great for large groups of people as well…. Thank you for the recipes.
