Flank Steak Roll Up
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.
Steak Fajita Rolls
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.
