Steak fajitas with oven roasted tomato and onion

Steak fajitas are a staple in our house, but for the first time, when I made them the other night, instead of sautéing the onions on the stove-top and dicing raw tomatoes to sprinkle on top, I oven roasted the onion and tomato.

The tomato and onions we so flavorful, oven roasting them actually changed the flavor profile of the fajitas. It’s amazing such a small change can have such a big impact.

I don’t know if it was because I hadn’t served our favorite fajitas in a while, or that the oven roasting really made that big of a difference, but everyone agreed they were the best fajitas every.

I sliced one large onion and tossed in one pint of grape tomatoes.

Add a pinch of kosher salt and pepper. Next add the sugar,  grapeseed oil and balsamic vinegar.

Toss to coat.

Layer on to a sheet and run into a preheated oven at 450′ for 20-30 minutes.


Layer on grilled steak, sour cream, salsa, lettuce and sharp cheddar cheese. Fold and enjoy.

    Hi Carol,
    You’ve got a good eye, spotting that chicken-pot-pie! Here’s a quick version of CPP, it’s not as tasty as the slow cook method, but not bad at all if you’re in a hurry. Thanks for reminding me that I need to post a recipe for the good old fashioned version.
