1. Marinate the Flank Steak 

Begin by marinating the flank steak. You can create a marinade using ingredients such as lime juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Place the flank steak in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag, pour the marinade over it, and ensure the steak is evenly coated.

2. Preheat the Grill or Pan 

If you're using an outdoor grill, preheat it to medium-high heat. If you're cooking indoors, heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Make sure the cooking surface is hot before adding the steak.

3. Prepare the Vegetables 

While the grill or pan is heating up, prepare your vegetables. You can slice onions, bell peppers, and any other vegetables you like to include in your fajitas. Toss them with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

4. Grill the Meat 

Once the grill or pan is hot, remove the flank steak from the marinade and shake off any excess. Place the steak on the grill or pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time according to your preferred level of doneness.

5. Cook the Vegetables 

While the steak is cooking, you can start cooking the vegetables. If you're using a grill pan or skillet, add the prepared vegetables to the hot pan and cook them until they are tender and slightly charred, stirring occasionally. This usually takes about 5-7 minutes.

6. Rest the Steak  

Once the flank steak is cooked to your desired doneness, remove it from the grill or pan and let it rest on a cutting board for about 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a juicier steak.

7. Slice the Steak

After the steak has rested, slice it thinly against the grain. Slicing against the grain helps to break up the muscle fibers, resulting in a more tender bite.

8. Assemble the Fajitas 

Warm up some flour or corn tortillas, and then assemble your fajitas by placing slices of the grilled flank steak and cooked vegetables onto the tortillas. You can also add toppings such as salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and cheese, according to your preference.
