Mike's Flank Steak Fajitas

By Mike Thayer

Got a hankering for fajitas? Try this the next time you fix them


  • Two pounds of flank steak
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • The juice of a lime
  • 2 tablespoons of fajita seasoning


Mix the olive oil, tequila, lime juice and fajita seasoning in a measuring cup or small bowl.  Pour over the top of the flank steak in a zip lock bag or plastic container.  Marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.   Grill over high heat, about five minutes on each side (for a medium rare). Pull the steaks off the grill, let them rest for five minutes and slice across the grain.  If you're like me and want more spice, sprinkle some more of that fajita seasoning on those slices before you put them in the tortilla. Fantastic!

West Side Transport - Cedar Rapids

West Side TransportWest Side Transport is a medium sized company with a small company feel. We appreciate the drivers, mechanics and office staff who work so hard to make every day run as smooth as possible. The family atmosphere was established over 40 years ago when the Vogt family started the venture with only a couple of trucks. Now it has since grown to over 500 trucks with the same family attitude and appreciation. To this day you will still find the owner hauling freight to understand better what our drivers see out there daily. He does this to make any necessary changes to help our drivers. The West Side Transport leadership team is always reviewing and making changes to improve driver satisfaction while they are out driving on the road.
