Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 large onions, thickly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 300g British beef rump steak, sliced into strips
  • Small bunch fresh coriander, stalks roughly chopped and leaves picked
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 100g chargrilled red peppers from a jar, cut into 1cm strips
  • 4 large tortillas, warmed
  • 240g mini pack Tex-Mex dips (such as soured cream, guacamole and tomato salsa)

To serve

  • Sliced jalapeño chillies and lime wedges (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat. Fry the onions for 3-4 minutes, then add the garlic and steak and fry for a minute more.
  2. Add the coriander stalks and spices, then stir-fry for another minute. Add the chargrilled peppers and cook until just warmed through, then scatter with the coriander leaves.
  3. Serve the steak with the warm tortillas and dips, along with jalapeños and lime wedges, if you like, so everyone can build their own fajita.
