We are a taco lovin' household for sure. Tell my son we are having steak tacos and he'll burn a trail to the dinner table. This recipe, found in Bon Appetit, was delicious. I loved the saucy steak and it made quite a mess while we were eating. The messiest tacos are always the best.
Steak Tacos (slightly modified from the BA recipe)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 skirt steak
1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced
3/4 cup canned diced tomatoes with green chiles
1/4 cup raisins
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground allspice
whole wheat & herb tortillas
fresh cilantro, chopped
Heat oil in large skillet. Sprinkle steak with salt & pepper. Add to skillet and saute 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate. In same skillet, add bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Add canned tomatoes, raisins, tomato paste, cumin and allspice. Simmer until sauce is thick, about 4 minutes. Season to taste wiht salt & pepper.
Cut steak into diagonal slices. Add steak and any juices to sauce. Toss to blend.
Heat tortillas and stuff with filling. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with homemade guac. Fresh, delicious and somewhat healthy! 1 large taco or 2 small corn tacos clocks in at 400 calories.
