Grilled Flank Steak Verde Fajitas

I love to grill. I really, really, wish I had one! One day I will and I will not take advantage of it! For now, I borrow Em's fancy smancy grill and enjoy every minute of it! Here are the delicious Flank Steak Verde Fajitas we made for our last 3Bs dinner.

Grilled Flank Steak Verde Fajitas
1 flank steak
1 cup of pickled jalapeno peppers (I bought the smallest jar and used the whole thing)
salt and pepper
1 white onion
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 poblano peppers
2 jalapeno peppers
1 garlic clove
1 tsp dried oregano
Extras: flour tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo
Pour pickled jalapeno peppers in a bag with the flank steak. Allow it to marinate at room temp for 1 hour.
Slice onion into 1/2 inch think rings.
Skewer the onions.
Skewer the peppers and jalapenos. The recipe actually says to grill them whole, then core and remove the stems, but I had a headache remember?? Brush the peppers and the onions with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Remove flank steak from marinate and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place steak and onion on the grill. Cook steak for 4 minutes on each side. 

Remove steak and allow it to rest on a cooking board and place peppers on the grill. Grill for 8 minutes.
Remove peppers and onions from the grill.
Peel off the skins, then stem and seed the peppers. 
Slice steak against the grain. (I sliced it too thick and it was hard to eat from a tortilla, I recommend slicing really thin or cutting into 1/2 inch cubes.)
Slice onions and peppers into strips.
You can use a nifty grill skillet like this or you can use a regular skillet on your stove. Pour 2 Tbsp of olive oil in the pan.
Add steak, peppers, onions, oregano, and garlic to the pan. Saute for 1-2 minutes.

Serve with tortillas (which I warmed in foil on the grill), guacamole, and pico.

Yummmmm! It is great as leftovers too!
Then here is a teaser. Em made us this incredible dessert. It is a mixture between whip cream and cheesecake, sorta like you are eating a cloud from heaven! I will make it soon and blog about it, but for now I will leave you to dream about it with me.
