Steak Strip Fajitas

Grill up fresh steak or use leftovers in these easy-to-make flavorful fajitas! Canadian beef is nutrient rich with each bite containing many essential nutrients. Try to choose lean cuts of beef (contains no more than 10% fat). For the best cuts of red meat look for the word “loin” in the name. You can also look for round steaks and roasts, such as eye round and bottom round, chuck shoulder steaks, filet mignon, flank steak, and arm roasts.
