2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Marinate the steak

  • Cut a small corner from the steak package and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a medium bowl, toss the steak with the mojo marinade; let stand while you heat the tortillas and prepare the garnishes.


Warm the tortillas

  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the 6 [12] tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Prep the garnishes; make the lime yogurt

  • Zest the lime and juice half, keeping the zest and juice separate; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Zest both limes; juice 1 lime and cut the remaining lime into wedges.]
  • Trim the ends from the radishes. Cut them in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons.
  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; thinly slice the romaine crosswise for garnish.
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, lime zest, and 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] lime juice; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Cook the steak

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons [1 to 2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, using a slotted spoon, transfer the steak from the marinade to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add more oil between batches if needed.


Set out the tortillas, steak, radishes, romaine, lime yogurt, lime wedges, Mexican cheese blend, and pickled jalapeños, if using, and invite everyone to assemble their own fajitas.
