Sizzling Steak Fajitas ALA Bear

-ingredients-
1 lb. Flank steak
2 tea. ground cumin
2 tea. chili powder
1/4 tea. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. red pepper
3 cloves minced garlic
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
2 c. sliced onion
1/2 of a red bell pepper cut into strips
1/2 of a yellow bell pepper cut into strips
1/2 of a green bell pepper cut into strips
1/2 lime
liquid smoke (just a couple of shakes)


-directions-

Slice steak diagonally across the grain into thin strips. Combine steak and next 6 ingredients in a zip-top bag and shake well to coat. Heat enough oil in nonstick pan to coat bottom on medium-high heat. Add steak, liquid smoke, onion, and bell peppers. Sauté about 6 min. or until steak is done.
Remove from heat and squeeze lime juice over fajitas. Divide fajitas among warm tortillas roll up and serve with Mexican rice. Now I know it's hard to find a 1 lb. Flank steak so if you have one 2 or 3 pounds just double up your ingredients accordingly. They make great leftovers.
