Venison Fajitas August 19, 2008

I’ve never made fajitas before, but when I got three bring green bell peppers and a couple onions on our box, I figured I’d best give it a shot. I came across this simple recipe and substituted steak for the venison in my freezer. I took a lot of short cuts since I didn’t have time to marinade, but I thought it tasted great anyway.

  • 1/2 pound venison (or steak)
  • 2 small onions – sliced
  • 2 green peppers – sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 t. cumin
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup cilantro – chopped
  • Salt/Pepper

In a little oil, saute sliced venison until nearly cooked through. Set aside. In same pan, toss in onion and pepper. Saute for 10 minutes until nice and soft. I let mine start to caramelize a bit, because it tastes good. Toss in garlic, cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper along with the venison. Stir several minutes. Toss in the cilantro just before eating. Wrap in your favorite tortilla and enjoy.

Notes: As I said, I took short cuts. I imagine the marinade would make things taste even better. As it was, it was a fast and easy meal that was very tasty indeed.

Servings: Two dinner servings with some left over onion/pepper.
