Place meat in fridge and let marinade for 4 hours to 24 hours.
Remove meat from marinade and grill or cook in a cast iron skillet over medium heat until meat reaches desired internal temperature.

Cut meat into strips, stir back in veggies.
Serve in a rice bowl, as a fajita, in a taco shell or on a salad.
