I made steak fajitas for my roommate

If you saw my video from yesterday, there was a piece of steak I was saving to make beef fajitas, so here it is. For the marinade, I mixed half a cup of olive oil, a tablespoon of oregano and paprika, 2 tablespoons of chili powder and cumin, 4 minced garlic cloves, the juice from 1 lime, 2 oranges, and chopped cilantro. I mixed it all up and added it to a ziplock bag with the steak. I let that marinate for about 4 hours. I prepped the beef fajitas by cutting up some bell peppers. Did I have to google how to cut bell peppers? Yes, yes I did. I wanted it to be colorful so I got yellow, orange, green and red peppers.

Then I sliced up a yellow onion. To a hot cast iron skillet, I added the steak. Cooked each side for 2 minutes, flipping every minute. While I let the steak rest, I heated up another pan and added the onions and bell peppers. I seasoned them with salt and pepper. I had my roommate heat up the tortillas as I cut the steak. It was rare but it was fine because I was adding them to the pan with the peppers. Then, we added the peppers, steak, store bought salsa, cilantro, and lime juice to the tortillas. These definitely hit the spot and they get points for being easy to make.
