Steak fajitas are the perfect combination for a fun Mexican meal. These Amazing Steak Fajitas or these Grilled Steak Fajita Skewers with Avocado Chimichurri have the same homemade fajita seasoning that is mouth-watering, good! I also love this quick air fryer version of my Chicken Fajitas, it’s so quick and full of amazing flavor!

Steak Fajitas Roll Ups

Sizzle your way into this steak fajita recipe! These roll ups are just perfect for a light meal or a quick. I love how easily these are made and come together so quickly on a busy night. They seriously take less than 20 minutes! The best part is, you get SO much flavor packed in this meal without tortillas or even guacamole (although you can totally add those, they are amazing with this too!)

This recipe is so simple I wouldn’t be surprised if it became your new favorite! I added my favorite homemade fajita seasoning, which is super easy to whip up and is made from spices you probably already have in your pantry. You will use a flank steak, which is already thin but pounding it to be a bit thinner helps it cook evenly in the skillet. These fajita roll ups are the perfect dinner completing it with some white or Mexican Rice! Your family will absolutely love these and beg for more.

How to Eat Steak Fajita Roll Ups

If this is your first time eating steak fajita roll ups, I have some tips! Honestly, I was a little hesitant at first trying to figure out the best way to eat them. I finally just grabbed one a took a bite out of it, oh my goodness amazing! I do have some tips for how to enjoy them in different ways that everyone loved!

  • Taco Style: Looking for something to hold onto while eating? Grab a corn tortilla and warm it up on a skillet with some oil. Then pop one of these roll ups in there with some fresh pico de gallo and you have the ultimate street food.
  • Grab a Fork and Knife: Keep it classy (and low carb) by eating it with a fork and knife! It’s really great and lower in carbs when eaten this way. You could also make a great cilantro ranch dressing to pour over the top to add more flavor to the mix.
  • Stuff a Burrito: One of my kids really wanted to make a burrito, so we grabbed our flour tortillas and made a few. Let me tell you, they were incredible! We added some rice and refried beans to make it official. It was such a hit!
