Fantastic Fajitas

Have I mentioned that I love Mexican food!? Especially since our trip to Mexico. The flavours are great, and it can be very easy to make at home. If you don’t have the rice, tortillas or beans, the rest is very primal – using natural and fresh ingredients.



1 red onion
1/2 yellow capsicum
1/2 red capsicum
2-3 large mushrooms
1 tspn ground cumin
1 tspn paprika
1/2 tspn ground coriander
1 tbsp coconut oil, for frying
Juice of one lime
1/2 can of diced tomatoes
1 large sirloin steak
Salt and Pepper
Optional: Jalapeños



Season the steak with salt and pepper and any other spices you might like. Allow to rest while you prepare the rest of the meal.

Slice all the vegetables lengthwise to a similar size. In a frying pan, heat the olive oil. Once it is hot, add the onions and stir for a couple of minutes. Then add the capsicums, the mushrooms, and the cumin, paprika and coriander. Toss together to ensure an even mix. Squeeze, or pour over the lime juice, then the tinned tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper to your taste. Add the jalapeños if you like them :)

When the vegetables are nearly ready, heat up another frying pan with a bit of coconut oil. Once hot, place the steak in. I always use a timer for my steak, 3 – 4 minutes each side, depending on the thickness. Once the steak is done, allow it to rest for a couple of minutes, then slice thinly.


To serve, place the vegetables on a plate and lay the sliced beef over top. Garnish with some fresh lime, and coriander if you have it!
