Spicy beef strip fajita salad bowl

Spicy beef strip fajita salad bowl

On a shopping trip we picked up some lovely lean steaks and fajitas were calling to me.

I love fajitas but I find I eat them quickly so to slow down the delivery I made a salad bowl out of it, so when I got to the end of my flour tortillas, I still had a lovely salad to finish!

his is one of the many lean recipes that I’ve created where flavour and simplicity are key. There are hundreds of lean recipes in my app The Lean Cook with adjustable calories and macros.

Ingredients for 1 serving

120 g sirloin steak
60 g peppers, cut into strips
40 g onion, sliced
40 g spring onion, finely chopped
80 g tomatoes, cut into wedges
40 g cucumber
10 g olive oil
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp dried chillies
2 flour tortillas, small
25 g reduced fat sour cream
0.5 lime
6 pickled jalapeno slices
100 g mixed salad leaves
salt and pepper


  • Mix the cajun seasoning with the dried chillies before coating the steak.  Set aside to infuse the steak with the lovely flavours.
  • Arrange the small flour tortillas onto the side of your bowl and top with the mixed salad leaves, cucumber, spring onion and tomatoes.
  • Put a medium frying pan onto the heat along with the oil.
  • When the oil is warm add the pepper slices to soften and after a couple of minutes add the steak to the pan.
  • Cook the steak to your liking and remove it from the pan and allow it to rest.
  • Slice the steak into thin strips and place it on top of the salad with the peppers and any of the resting juices.
  • Top the steak with the reduced fat sour cream and jalapeño slices and serve the lime wedge on the side.

Recipe Notes

  • Feel free to change the spices and increase the dried chillies.
  • If you can’t find small flour tortillas, 1 regular size tortilla will be a good substitute.
  • I’ve used sirloin as it’s a lovely lean cut, but feel free to use other cuts if you’d prefer.
