Fajita Marinated Steak Tips

Well, I was going to go all ‘Denise-crazy’ on you guys and make the tortillas I posted two weeks ago and cashew sour cream (since I don’t have commercially available safe products) and make fajitas that looked all pretty, but my mom is visiting and I’m exhausted from pruning the rhododendrons in the front yard. And hey, sometimes a simple dinner is good. You can marinate these ahead of time and then throw them on the grill or broil them in your oven in a few minutes, and have a yummy dinner in no time. You can eat them by themselves with a nuked baked potato and veg, or you can slice them and throw them on a salad, or slice them and make fajitas.  The pictures show me making only a pound, because my mother won’t eat anything spicy (sacrilege, I know), and half were being saved out for her dinner.
