METHOD

1 Make the fajita spice mix: during a small bowl combine kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and flavorer.
2 Make the vegetable foil pack: Fold an outsized piece of foil in half so you’ve got a double layer. Add the sliced peppers and onions. Season the vegetables with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning.

Fold the edges of the foil up and crimp it tightly on top to form a packet.
3 Season the steak: Season the steak liberally with the seasoning mix (about 3/4 teaspoon per side).
4 Preheat your grill to 450°F for top heat grilling.
5 Grill the packet and therefore the steak: Once the grill is hot, transfer the veggie packet and therefore the steak to the grill. Grill over steak over high, direct heat. After 4 minutes, flip the steak and grill for five to 7 additional minutes.

This will finish cooking the steak to a few media to medium-rare temperature and soften the veggies. Remove both the foil packet and therefore the steak from the grill and let cool for a couple of minutes.
6 Make the Dad Add Lime soured cream (optional): during a small bowl, combine soured cream, zest, the juice from 1 lime, cumin, and salt. Serve alongside the fajitas.
7 Slice the steak: Slice the steak thinly against the grain.
8 Serve: you’ll add the steak to the veggies and serve the fajitas right out of the foil packet alongside a stack of flour tortillas. The foil should be strong enough, but if yours seems unstable, you’ll also transfer the ingredients to a serving platter.
