Chances are, you won't have spices with you stream-side. So make this rub the night before and bring with you in a plastic bag!

Stead Rub Ingredients:
One Pinch of the Following:
  • Black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Chili powder
  • Cumin 
  • Paprika
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Garlic powder
Equipment:
  • Skillet or Castiron pan
  • Propane or fire
  • Tongs
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board


Other Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of flank steak
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 small jar hatch green chili
  • Tortillas 
  • Avocado oil
Nice to Haves:
  • Guac
  • Mexican cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Hot sauce
  • Beer (for steak)
  • Beer (for drinking)

Step 1: Preheat the skillet

Step 2: Cut peppers and onions into finger shaped strips

Step 3: Cover the entire steak with the homemade rub

Step 4: Pour a splash of avocado into the hot skillet and lay the steak down into it

Step 5: Cook the steak for about 5 minutes on each side for medium rare. Or 8 minutes on each side for medium well. Half-way through, splash the steak with some beer, flip and do it again.

Step 6: Once it’s cooked to your liking, remove and let the steak rest on a cutting board. 

(Pro Tip: letting meat rest will allow the meat to reabsorb the juices, making it more tender and juicy)

Step 7: Cook the peppers and onions for at least 10 minutes or until they’re charred/soft. When they’re half-way done, add a generous splash of Hatch green chili sauce. 

Step 8: Slice the steak thin (pro-tip: slice the steak against the grain, this will make it more tender when eating)

Step 9: Line up the buffet of goodies, build your fajita, and enjoy!
