Mixing Your Goods:

Paleo Fajitas – Combine the marinade ingredients in a large ziptop bag. Put the steak in the bag, press out any extra air and put in the refrigerator to marinate for an hour or more.

When the steak is sufficiently marinated, heat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and season on both sides with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Save the marinade. Cook the steak 5 minutes per side (approximately) for medium doneness. When cooked, remove from pan and cover with foil.

In the same pan, scrape up any excess bits. Add onion and 2 tablespoons of marinade and sauté for 2 minutes. Then add peppers and rest of marinade and sauté until vegetables are crisp tender.

Slice the steak into thin slices. To serve, place the peppers and onions on a plate, top with the steak.

Serve with avocado, tomato and fresh lime wedges. Garnish with parsley or cilantro if desired.
