Flank steak is the star of this grilled steak fajitas recipe, and it’s packed with flavor from a simple steak fajitas marinade full of spices and lime juice. Yet even with the delicious steak, we can’t forget about the veggies! After all, this grilled steak fajitas veggie bowl totally hits over-achiever status with the whole “half your plate veggies” thing. 😉
Half of the veggie power in these grilled steak fajitas veggie bowls comes from the peppers and onions sliced and grilled in a foil packet with some fajita seasoning. Yup, the same seasonings used in the marinade are used on the veggies! The easiest way to make veggies taste good (and add more nutrients and antioxidants) is to add some spices!
The rest of the veggies come from my recent coconut cauliflower rice recipe. It’s SUCH a quick and easy healthy dinner recipe staple, and one of my favorite pairings for it so far are these grilled steak fajitas veggie bowls! It has a hint of creamy sweetness and it tastes so great with the fajita seasonings.

Grilled Steak Fajitas Veggie Bowl
Grilled Flank Steak & Marinade:
- 1 lb flank steak
- 2 tbsp avocado oil (or other high heat neutral oil)
- ¼ cup lime juice
- 1 ½ tsp cumin powder
- 1 ½ tsp paprika
- 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 ½ tsp black pepper
- 1 ½ tsp salt
Grilled Fajita Veggies
- 1 bell pepper sliced into thin strips
- 1 small red onion sliced into half-moon slices
- ¼ tsp cumin powder
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp avocado oil (or other high heat, neutral oil)
- 1 tbsp lime juice
Other Bowl Ingredients:
- 1 batch coconut cauliflower rice
- optional garnish: cilantro, lime wedges, avocado
- Combine flank steak and all marinade ingredients in an enclosed glass container or resealable bag. Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours. Prior to grilling, remove marinated steak from refrigerator and sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- Take two 16" pieces of aluminum foil, cross them, then pile sliced vegetables and seasonings in the center. Fold the aluminum foil over to fully cover and enclose the fajita vegetables in a packet.
- Preheat the grill. Once grill is hot, place flank steak and foil packet of fajita veggies on the grill grates. Grill steak approximately 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or according to personal done preference. Fajita vegetables cook for the whole time the steak is on the grill.
- If you don't already have a batch of coconut cauliflower rice prepared, start preparing that now (it takes around 10 minutes, which is approximately how long it takes the grilled steak fajitas and veggies to cook).
- Once steak is done, remove steak and veggie foil packet from the grill. Allow steak to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. When slicing, be sure to slice against the grain of the meat.
- Assemble grilled steak fajitas veggie bowls by adding coconut cauliflower rice, grilled fajita veggies, and sliced grilled fajita steaks in a bowl. Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.
