Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas
- Pre-cook your potatoes, either by boiling them for 15 minutes, or by poking holes in the skins with a fork and microwaving for 7 - 10 minutes. Slice cooked potatoes in half, and place cut side down on sheet pan.
- In a large bowl, toss broccoli with 2 tbs soy sauce and 1 tbs olive oil. Spread onto your sheet pan.
- Slice peppers and arrange on sheet pan. Spray lightly with oil.
- Arrange mushrooms on sheet pan, spray lightly with oil and then sprinkle with seasoned salt.
- Arrange onion slices on sheet pan, spray lightly with oil and season with seasoned salt.
- Slice your steak into small slices. In a large bowl toss with 1 tbs olive oil, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp minced garlic (about 1 clove), 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp salt. Spread onto your sheet pan in a single layer.
- Cook under a high broiler for 5-7 minutes, then flip steak and onions. Cook another 5-7 minutes or just until meat is cooked.
- Line the pan with foil before you begin, and cleanup will be a breeze!Pay attention to where your broiler is Mine is always hottest in the center, so I put more hearty items in the center of the pan.
