Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 25 min.
Total Time: 45 min.


3 bell peppers, cut into strips
1 red onion, sliced
3 tablespoons olive or avocado oil, divided
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste
1.5 lbs. flank steak, skirt steak or carne asada

Preheat the oven to 425F and line two a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the vegetables in a large bowl. Add 2 tbsp olive oil and all seasonings, massage to combine.

Spread the vegetables among the baking trays and roast for 30 minutes.

While the vegetables are roasting, prepare your steak by seasoning with salt and pepper.
