Usually one of the most popular dishes at any good Tex Mex restaurant or Roadhouse are those wonderful sizzling trays of Fajitas. Here’s a very easy way you can prepare a simple sheet tray fajita meal for four in the comfort of your own kitchen. And, if you’re feeling very industrious and want to cut out some calories, swap out brown rice for Cauliflower Rice.
Sheet tray meals have become a favourite at my house and are a Veteran Move unto themselves. They are dead easy to prepare, clean up is kept to a minimum and also tend to make balancing the meal with delicious, nutritious and above all else HEALTHY ingredients a snap! You’ll see a lot of sheet tray selections in this blog as a result.
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 ½ cup water
- 1 lb flank steak, thinly sliced
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced lengthwise
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ¾ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 1 lime, cut into wedges
Preheat oven to 450˚F.
If you’re using it, place the rice in a sieve and rinse it under cold water to remove excess starch. Transfer it to a small pot with salt and water as directed above and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer, put a lid on, and cook until water is absorbed, about 45 minutes.
Or, prepare rice in much the same way but, in a rice cooker!
