Flank steak is soaked in a garlicky marinade before being grilled along with onions and bell peppers, and then served in a fajita.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • SEPARATE garlic bulb into cloves; peel and crush cloves.
  • COMBINE garlic and next 6 ingredients in a shallow dish or large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add steak. Cover or seal, and chill 4 hours, turning occasionally.
