Makes 4 servings
1lb lean steak, cut into thin strips
4 bell peppers, sliced thin
2 large onions, peeled and sliced
2 garlic cloves, smashed and minced
1 tsp chipotle powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp Mexican oregano
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
2 limes, halved
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1-2 T olive oil (p3 only)
Mix the spices in a small bowl.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the oil if using. Add steak and half the spices. Stir to cook and coat with spice. It will cook quickly, so stir or flip continuously. Remove to a plate. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime over the meat.
Add the peppers and peppers to the skillet. Sprinkle on the spices. Squeeze the juice of the other lime over the veggies and add all four halves of the limes to the skillet. Crank the heat to high and sear the veggies- you want to let them sit in the hot skillet without stirring, for about a minute at a time to get a bit of char on them. Then stir and let sit. Repeat until done to your likeness. Add the steak, remove the lime peels. Stir together and add cilantro. Serve immediately.
