Tonight we tried the new MorningStar Farms Meal Starters 'Steak' Strips, in a fajita recipe, found on the MorningStar Farms site. It was pretty good!! They had a decent texture and were nice and peppery. I'm a little more picky with my fake-meat products, so I would probably never eat them on their own, but they do taste good in this recipe. Tomorrow night we're trying the chicken-strips in a chicken pot pie recipe.

Here is the fajita recipe, c/o MorningStar Farms.

Sizzling Steak Fajitas
2 cups (8 oz) Morningstar Farms® Meal Starters™ Steak Strips
3 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 cups fajita vegetable mix (red peppers, onions, etc)
1 tablespoon lemon juice or lime juice
4 flour tortillas, warmed
Salsa, fat-free sour cream and/or shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1. In large nonstick frypan coated with cooking spray, cook and stir steak strips over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until hot. Remove from frypan.
2. Add oil to frypan. Add vegetables. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in steak strips. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
3. Spoon onto tortillas. Wrap up. Serve immediately with salsa, sour cream and/or cheese.
