Steak Fajitas

This recipe is so flavorful.  I like to make my own flour tortillas for it.  It only makes it better.  This marinate is also good for chicken fajitas.  You can add guacamole to it if you like.  I like my steak medium rare.  Cook yours to your liking.

(makes 8)

*1 pound sirloin, flank or strip steak
*1 orange, juiced
*1 lime, juice
*1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
*1/3 cup olive oil
*2 garlic cloves, finely minced
*1 teaspoon cumin
*2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (or 1 teaspoon of dried cilantro)
*1/2 teaspoon chili powder
*1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
*1 teaspoon salt
*1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
*1 large onion, sliced
*1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
*1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
*1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
*1 tablespoon olive oil
*1 tablespoon olive oil
*8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
*Sour Cream for topping (optional)
*Shredded Cheese for topping (optional)
*Salsa for topping (optional)
*Fresh Cilantro for topping (optional)
*Shredded lettuce for topping (optional)
*Chopped fresh tomato for topping (optional)

~In a gallon size zip-loc bag or a dish,  mix orange juice, lime juice, worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup olive oil, garlic, cumin, cilantro, chili powder, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper & sugar.
~Pour half of the marinate into another zip-lock bag.
~Place steak into on of the bags and let marinate in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
~In the second bag place sliced red pepper, green pepper, orange pepper & onion and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
~In a heavy skillet or indoor grill (I use my cast-iron) over medium-high heat, drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil.
~Remove steak from marinate.
~Cook steak for 3-6 minutes per side depending on how done you like your steak (I cook mine about 3-4 minutes per side).
~Remove from pan allow steak to rest.
~Drizzle another tablespoon of olive oil on grill/pan.
~Remove veggies from marinate.
~Place veggies on hot grill and grill until slightly firm, 6-8 minutes.
~Remove and place on a plate.
~Slice steak lengthwise against the grain of the steak.
~While the veggies are grilling, heat up tortillas and store inside of a clean dishcloth to keep them warm. Do this either my microwave, frying pan or place tortilla over a flame of a gas grill until slightly charred.
~Place steak on tortilla, top with grilled veggies and toppings of choice.
