Chili's Style Grilled Beef Fajitas


1. Whisk together the lime juice, 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2 minced garlic cloves, soy sauce, liquid smoke, cumin, cayenne and chili powder. Place the steak in a large bowl, pour the marinade on top and cover. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or even overnight.
2. Heat the grill to medium high. Grill the steak for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through (or 150°F with a meat thermometer).
3. While the steak is cooking, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium high. Add the remaining garlic and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes, until slightly softened. Add the onion and peppers and continue cooking for 6 to 8 minutes, or until crisp tender.
4. Add 2 tablespoons water, salt and the sweet vermouth (if desired). Continue cooking until the onions and peppers are soft and slightly caramelized.
5. Tuck meat into tortillas with onions and peppers and serve with salsa.
