Ingredients

2 tsp Smoked paprika

1½ tbsp Olive oil
2 cloves Garlic, chopped
1 small Red onion, thinly sliced

1 Green chilli, deseeded and finely diced
Grilled corn cobs, warm flour tortillas, lime wedges and shredded iceberg lettuce, to serve

Method

1 Place Beef strips into a bowl with the smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and 1 tbsp of olive oil and toss to coat. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
2 Preheat a large heavy-based frying pan to moderately hot and cook the Beef for 2 minutes in 3 batches until browned. Set the Beef aside.
3 Add the remaining olive oil along with the garlic, red onion and capsicum and cook for 3 minutes, stirring regularly. Return the Beef and any juices back to the pan and season with salt and pepper.

5 To make the salsa: Place all of the salsa ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Tips

1 If you would like to use flank or skirt steak and can't find it ask your butcher if they can source it for you.
2 If using oyster blade remove the line of gristle running down the centre of the steak.
3 The fajita mix can be cooked on a flat barbeque plate.
4 Create a milder dish by omitting the cayenne pepper and green chilli.
