Cinco de Mayo is this Friday… Do you know what you’re serving?

If you are trying to stick to a lean low carb diet, a holiday celebrated with tortilla chips and queso can be a little tricky.

Thin pieces of flank steak and Old El Paso Fajita Seasoning Mix make an amazing base for this Low Carb Steak Fajita Roll-Ups recipe. It’s important to butterfly the flank steak and pound out the thickest sections with a meat tenderizer (or rolling pin) so that you have one large thin sheet of flank steak to work with.

This might sound like a chore, yet actually, beating flank steak into submission is somewhat therapeutic. *wink*

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Starting on one long edge, use a sharp knife to butterfly the flank steak, cutting it open parallel to the cutting board, so it can open like a book with two thin layers. Stretch the flank steak out and cover with plastic wrap. Use a meat tenderizer (or rolling pin) to pound the thickest sections creating one even thin piece of flank steak, double the length of the original. Remove the plastic and sprinkle Old El Paso Fajita Seasoning over both sides of the steak. Then cut the flank steak into twelve segments, 2.5 X 5 inches long.
  2. Seed the bell peppers and slice into thin strips. Trim the ends of the asparagus so that the tops are about the same length as the bell peppers. Discard the ends. Peel the onion and cut into thin wedges. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Once hot, work in batches to blister the peppers, asparagus, and onions in a dry pan. Leave them in only 1-2 minutes per batch, to create char marks. Then remove.
  3. Lower the heat to medium-high. Lay several pepper strips, asparagus spears, and onion wedges across each flank steak strip, creating a cross pattern. Wrap the ends of the flank steak tightly around the veggies and secure the ends with a toothpick.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Once hot, add 6 rolls to the skillet. Sear 1-2 minutes per side, rotating to sear all sides. Cook the rolls approximately 5-6 minutes total, for medium-rare steak. Remove the rolls and repeat with the remaining oil and rolls.  Serve warm drizzled with Old El Paso Taco Sauce.
