  1. Make the marinade in a large baking dish: lime juice from 1 lime, garlic cloves, 1/4 cup onions, orange juice, olive oil, cilantro leaves, chopped onions and 1/2 tsp salt.
  2. Add the beef to the marinade and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
  3. Take the strips out of the mojo marinade.
  4. If using a grill outside, sear the strips over direct heat for 2 minutes per side (you will know the grill is hot enough when you can only hold your hand 5 inches above the grill grate for no more than 3 seconds). When using an indoor grill, once you see steam rising off the skillet, you are ready to grease it with a little fat and begin searing.
  5. Sear the strips over direct heat for 2 minutes per side, then move them off the heat, cover, and cook and extra 4 minutes (or until desired doneness).
  6. Once cooked, leave the strips to rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Now make the lime yogurt side. Zest the second lime and then cut in half. Juice half the lime and cut the other half into wedges. In a small bowl stir together yogurt, lime zest and 1 TB lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Separate and wash the romaine lettuce leaves.
  9. Warm the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side in a dry skillet until toasty.
  10. Set out the tortillas, romaine leaves, steak, 1/4 cup of onions, lime yogurt, lime wedges and mexican cheese blend. Let guests assemble their own fajitas.
