Fajitas are a great vehicle for build-your-own formats and catering that are easy to execute.

Place beef in ziplock bag and add marinade ingredients. Shake well to coat beef. Marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Discard marinade, pat meat dry and season to taste.

Combine salsa ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat oil in pan and cook beef on medium high for 3-4 minutes each side for medium rare or until springy to the touch. Transfer to a board and let stand 5-10 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain.

While beef is resting, heat remaining oil in skillet or non-stick pan on high heat and stir-fry peppers and onion until soft and slightly caramelized, about 4-5 minutes. Add beef and toss just to heat through.

Fill warm tortillas with beef and vegetables and serve with salsa, lime and cilantro. Accompany with a bottle of Mexican beer!

To Serve: Add lime wedges and extra cilantro.
