We had a delicious dinner at my parents the other night, which my mom sent us home with a bag full of leftover tri-tip. If you don't know what tri-tip is...I'm sorry! I'm not really gonna go into it, but ri-tip is a certain cut of beef that was started in a town not too far from where we live. Its good. Anyway, I had this leftover tri-tip. I've never made fajitas before (well I have, but only from a bag of Trader Joe's frozen fajita mix), so I thought I'd have a try at it. They turned out YUM-MEE! I totally made it up, so any of you die-hard fajita fans, please don't judge me!
- Leftover tri-tip (or steak or pork or whatever), sliced into strips (about 1/2" wide, 2-3 inches long, doesn't really matter so much the size)
- Onion, sliced
- Bell peppers (I like a variety of different colors), julienned
- 1/4 cup Taco Seasoning
- 3/4 cup Water
- Cheese, shredded (cheddar or Jack are good)
- About 1 tsp sugar
- Olive oil
- 1-2 Tbsp butter
- Tortillas (corn or flour)
- Sour cream (for garnish)
Meanwhile in another pan, heat a little oil and heat up your sliced leftover meat. When its heated through, sprinkle with 1/4 cup Taco Seasoning (more or less depending on how much meat you have) and 3/4 cup water. Stir thoroughly. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 10-20 minutes until the water has gone down and the seasoning has soaked into your meat.
When everything is cooked, heat up your tortillas - if you're lucky enough to have a gas grill, warm 'em on a burner. Otherwise through 'em in the oven real quick or in the microwave for 20-30 seconds until they're just warm enough and are more flimsy.
Top tortillas with onion/pepper mixture, meat, shredded cheese, and sour cream (in whatever order you wish!).
