Steak and Mango Fajitas – the grilled steak and mangoes make a great combination, out of this world.
I have to tell you this, my latest favorite show is Lipstick Jungle. I never would have watched this show because I think the name is stupid, but it happens to be on Netflix and so I thought I’d watch a couple episodes. It’s about 3 powerful women and their life struggles. I’m sad to say it was cancelled after 2 seasons, but I’m really enjoying it, mind you some of the stories are a bit unrealistic, such as Victory dating a multi billionaire, but I just love the characters.
Anyway that has absolutely nothing to do with my recipe today, but I just wanted to share with you, it’s one of those things that make me happy.
I love fajitas and I have a couple fajitas recipes here but this is the first time I made these steak fajitas with mangoes. I have to tell you, these were out of this world. Totally delicious, they are fantastic. I absolutely love the mangoes in these fajitas and the steak is so tasty. Great combination, marriage made in heaven.
- 1 lb 450 g beef sirloin steak, 1 in/2.5 cm thick

- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp fajita seasoning
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano

Trim fat from steak, if necessary. Place steak in a resealable plastic bag. For marinade mixture, stir together oil, lime juice, fajita seasoning and oregano. Reserve 2 tbsp of the marinade and pour the rest of the marinade over meat and seal the bag. Refrigerate for about 4 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
In a skillet melt butter and add onion slices. Drizzle with reserved marinade mixture. Saute the onion until slightly brown. Set aside.
Drain steak and discard marinade. Grill steak 14 to 18 minutes for medium-rare or to desired doneness, turning once.
Thinley slice meat. Serve with onions and sliced mango in warm tortillas.
