There are a lot of reasons why I love Mexicans. The taco is one of them.
You know I'm cheap. Make that frugal. Well, when it comes to beef, cheap cuts usually mean tough. That's why these tacos are perfect-- the "toughness" doesn't matter.
Not only that, but these are fresh and healthy. Do not read: low fat. They are not the same for me. Whoever said healthy can only mean low-fat was probably a shrewd, miserable person whose taste-buds fell off. I think that, in a day, you need to keep your fat intake moderate and that you should strive to make those healthy fats whenever possible. But never eating fat is as extreme as it is boring.
It's all about balance and moderation.
Hey, can you hand me the rest of those Skittles? I dropped them on my ice cream filled chocolate cake. Thanks.
Anyway, to make these, here's what you need:
Meg's Sirloin Tacos
- sirloin or flank steak
- fresh tomatoes
- fresh white onion
- fresh avocado
- corn tortillas
- seasoning (i like cumin, oregano, and a little chili powder, but taco seasoning works too)
- salt n' peppa
Get your pan HOT. Stainless steel is really best for this. No oil.
Sear the outside VERY quickly and then turn it down to med/med low and finish cooking with the lid on and a little liquid of some sort (just a little) to keep it from drying out. With flank steaks, you really probably want the middle pink; they're tough enough as it is.
While they meat is searing, season it up.
When the meat is done, dice up the tomatoes, onions, and avocados and mix together. Shred some cheese. I go light on the cheese with these, unless I use chicken.
Toast the tortillas in a pan before serving.
