My friends at O-Live & Co. and I are partnering to share these epic Mexican inspired sheet pan steak fajitas made with their Robust oil.

Your new favorite sheet pan dinner
Allow me to introduce you to your new favorite go-to dinner. Whether it’s a weeknight meal or something to share with friends when hosting, this sheet pan dinner is a crowd pleaser.
Most of us love sheet pan meals for their simplicity. All the ingredients get cooked in one central spot and clean up is usually pretty minimal.
My favorite part? Serving the final dish.
There’s something ridiculously fun about taking a sizzling hot pan straight from the oven to the table, where everyone can grab a tortilla and dig in.
What you need
Another awesome aspect of this sheet pan meal is the ingredient list.
When everything gets cooked together, you don’t need too many ingredients to get impressive flavors.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Steak - I like using top sirloin but any lean cut of steak will work. If you’re using several cuts, make sure that they are relatively close in size so they cook evenly.
- O-Live & Co. Robust Oil - my personal favorite of the O-Live & Co. line, the Robust flavor is the perfect oil to marry everything together when broiled in the oven.
- Veggies - an onion, some bell peppers and a jalapeno if you like a little spice. Don’t forget some limes and fresh cilantro to garnish!
- Spices - some cumin, chili powder, garlic, paprika and brown sugar for good measure. These steaks are anything but bland.
- Tortillas - corn or flour both work, but something about a flour tortilla fajita just makes sense to me.

Cooking steak with your broiler
This little cooking hack is one that will change your life. At least, it changed mine 😅.
Cooking steak with your broiler seems weird at first, until you remember the broiler is just a giant flame. And steak and fire go together exceptionally well.
The broil setting on your oven is actually perfect for cooking so many different things.
The trick? Keeping a close eye on whatever you’ve got cooking.
Your onions, bell peppers and jalapenos are all going to cook fairly fast, thanks to the olive oil. From there, you’ll add the steak to the pan, broil, flip and broil on the other side.
The broiler makes this process super straightforward as you can physically see the browning happening (as opposed to when you’re searing steak in a pan.)
You can use a thermometer to make sure it’s at your desired level of well done.
Here’s a quick guide:
- Rare - medium rare: 130℉ - 145℉
- Medium - done: 145℉ - 165℉
- Well done: 165℉ and up
Just like any other steak recipe, letting it rest after cooking is essential. I recommend 5-7 minutes of rest time.
Finally, you’re ready to cut into your steak, add some fresh cilantro, limes, warm tortillas and serve up your fajitas right off the sheet pan!
