I used red, green, yellow, and orange bell peppers because they are so pretty and delicious.

I couldn't keep my husband out of this meat! The marinade is wonderful and so tasty.

Fajita marinade
¼ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

1. Mix all ingredients in a oven-safe 9 by 13-inch pan.

Fajita marinade
1 ½ pound beef, (I make it with chicken or pork too)
Flour tortillas
2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 medium green or red bell peppers cut into ¼-inch strips
Shredded cheese
Sour cream

1. make fajita marinade.
2. Remove fat from beef. Cut in strips and marinate with the fajita marinade for 8 hours, but not longer then 24 hours, (I put the beef in the pan with the marinade that is going to go in the oven).
3. Set oven control to broil.
4. Place pan in oven about 3 inches from heat about 8 minutes. Turn; broil for 3 more minute or until is cook to taste.
5. While beef is broiling, heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions and bell peppers in oil 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender.
6. Serve.
