Now don't laugh....but this is really just grilled steak fajitas without the tortilla. We had tortillas, but not enough for both Chris and I, so I figured, why not make it into a "stir fry" type dish? Plus, I've been on a real rice kick lately, so I would have rather had the rice then the tortilla, so it worked out perfectly!
Whether you put it in a bowl over rice or noodles or wrap it up in a tortilla, this is a fantastic little grilled steak fajita. The sauce, of course, being the part that brings everything together!
Grilled Steak Fajita "Stir Fry"
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
For the marinade -
1/4 cup Country Bob's Honey Habenaro Sauce (you can use any all purpose sauce, though, like A-1 or Heinz 57 or even a bbq sauce)
3 Tablespoons beer (I used Bud Light)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
For the sauce -
2 Tablespoons Hoisin
1 Tablespoon Sriracha
2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoons sesame oil
For the "stir fry" -
1 lb. steak (I used top sirloin because I found it really really really cheap)
2 red bell peppers, stem and seeds removed (do not chop yet!!)
1 jalapeno pepper, stem and seeds removed (do not chop yet!!)
1/2 sweet onion, sliced crosswise into 1/8-1/4 inch thick slices
cooked rice or noodles (optional)
Mix together the ingredients for the marinade. Season the steak with salt, place in resealable bag, and pour marinade over it. Allow to sit in refrigerator for 4 hours (if you don't have that much time, it's ok, 1-2 hours will work in a pinch).
Preheat the grill to 400 degrees. Remove the steak from the marinade and place directly on the grill grates. Grill about 5-10 minutes per side or until the steaks are done to your liking. Remove from grill and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing (against the grain). Place the vegetables over direct heat and grill for about 5-8 minutes or just until starting to soften (if you want them with less bite, keep them on the grill longer). Remove from grill and slice into thin strips.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the sauce. To serve, place rice or noodles into a bowl, top with sliced steak and vegetables, drizzle on some sauce (if the sauce is too thick, you can thin it out with a little chicken broth or water), toss to combine everything, and enjoy!
