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!
