Do I have to use Flank Steak for the Beef Fajita Meat?
That’s the type of steak I recommend for the fajitas, but if your store doesn’t have it, you can substitute with another kind of steak like skirt steak. You just have to be able to slice it in strips and hopefully it won’t have much fat. If it does, you’ll want to trim that off as well.
I ended up not able to find Flank Steak on my last grocery run and I used a really thin cut. It ended up almost too thin, as the meat fell apart really fast, but it was still really tasty!

What Toppings Do You Recommend for Steak Fajitas Salad?
- Sour Cream
- Pico de Gallo
- Black Olives
- Bell Peppers (red pepper or green)
- Lime Juice
- Jalapeno Peppers
What kind of salsa is the best?
Really, any kind of delicious salsa will work. I love making homemade salsa and using that. It adds a freshness to the recipe that can’t be beat.
If you want to go with a canned salsa, really anything will do – even a tomatillo base!
Will This Instant Pot Steak Fajitas Salad Work for a Keto Diet?
When I first made this recipe, it was one of the first ones I was doing while on Keto. Keep in mind, on Keto, you can only have 20 net carbs per day. If you were to break this recipe up into 8 servings, it would work on Keto, as it only has 6 net carbs. You would need to be careful about the extra toppings to make sure that they remained in your Keto range. It’s definitely delicious and something you’ll want to consider if you’re on a keto or low carb diet. So yummy!
Can I Make Steak Fajitas Salad for the Slow Cooker, instead?
Yes! I love making fajitas in the slow cooker, too. If you do, I would wait until the last hour or two before you add the peppers and onions, otherwise they’ll be super soggy. You should be able to cook these on low for about 6 hours, or high for 3-4 hours. Check out my Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas Recipe for a variation.
