Meal Prep: Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas

  • 4 cups cooked brown rice or quinoa


  1. Preheat baking sheet pan under the broiler on an oven rack set in the top position.
  2. Combine oil, cumin, ½ teaspoon salt, chile powder, and black pepper in a bowl; stir with a whisk.
  3. Place steak in a separate bowl; add half the oil mixture and toss to coat.
  4. Place bell peppers and onions in a separate bowl; add half the oil mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Carefully remove baking sheet from oven; coat with cooking spray. Spread pepper mixture onto pan.
  6. Broil until almost tender, about 10 minutes. Remove sheet pan from oven.
  7. Arrange pepper mixture to the sides of the pan. Place steak in center of sheet pan.
  8. Broil until steak reaches desired doneness, about 3 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and sprinkle cilantro over meat and vegetables.
  10. Divide quinoa or brown rice, steak, and pepper mixture between 4 airtight meal containers; refrigerate for up to 4 days.
Mealthy tip:

For speedy cleanup, cover the sheet pan with non-stick foil. That way at the end of the meal you can just wrap it up and toss it out! A quick rinse and the dishes are done.

You had me at "sheet pan". These fajitas were so easy to make and really great, even as leftovers. I like to go to Mexican restaurants for fajitas, but this recipe will have me staying home a lot more often.

These sheet pan fajitas are ridiculously easy and very delicious. They're so flavorful you could really eat them without any sides. If I want something a little more filling, I make it with rice and beans. This recipe is also great for meal prepping.

These sheet pan fajitas area really good. When they come out the oven I just eat them right off the sheet pan. They're really quick and easy, which is also a plus.
