  • 2 lbs beef cut into strips, typically flank steak is used but can use other cuts
  • 2 bell peppers I use 1/2 of 4 different colors, sliced
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 3 limes
  • 1 pkg fajita seasoning or marinade beef in homemade fajita marinade, link above recipe card


  • Marinade your thinly sliced beef overnight (link to the best beef marinade is above recipe card) 
  • Slice onion and bell peppers, add into pressure cooker with beef.
  • Squeeze 3 fresh limes into the pot ensuring no seeds land inside. Sprinkle packet of fajita seasoning over everything if you are adding that rather than previously marinading your beef.
  • Mix all ingredients so everything is mixed and/or coated well.
  • Close lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 18 minutes. (time will vary depending on thickness of meat pieces and how much meat you are using, this worked well for 2 lbs. cut into med. size strips)
  • Do a quick release.
  • Serve inside small tortillas topped with fresh cilantro, salsa, sour cream, avocado, or any other fajita toppings.
