Tacos ***My Way!

by Michelle on February 4, 2009

It was the Friday before Christmas and I was doing some last minute grocery shopping. I had had my fill of holiday appetizers, brunches, alcohol and spicy dips and was not in the mood for cooking or even eating. As I was browsing through the aisles of my local market, I came upon some Thin-sliced Round Steak. As soon as I saw the thin steak I knew immediately what I was going to make….Tacos! But not just any old taco, it had to simple, tasty and fast with minimal cleanup.

I picked up the packet of Thin-cut Round Steak, a carton of Guacamole and packet of Flour Tortillas. I had canned some Salsa the previous summer so had it ready and waiting on my pantry shelf. And this was all I needed to make a wonderful dinner. I served the strips of steak, tortillas, salsa and guacamole so we could Make-it and Eat-it. I had my tacos with just steak and guacamole but of course my husband had his piled high with salsa. Any which way, the tacos were delicious!

And to make this meal sweeter, I finally found a use for the divided dish I bought some 25 years ago!

Tacos **My Way
Recipe developed by Big-Black-Dog

Packet of Flour Tortillas
1-2 lbs of thin-sliced Round steak
Guacamole
Salsa
1 TBL butter
2 TBL EVOO
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Cut the thin round steak into 1/2″ strips. In a frying pan melt butter and add EVOO. When oil is hot add the strips of round steak and saute until browned. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove steak to a paper towel and drain for a minute. Warm the tortillas in the microwave and you’re good to go!

Note: When you saute the steak strips you can season with garlic or any herb or spice that you wish. Or you could marinate the meat overnight in EVOO, a little balsamic vinegar, red wine, garlic and any herb of your choice.

    The tacos tasted so good! Joe ate like 8 tacos! I’ve made it once since Christmas week and the tacos tasted just as good the second time. Round steak is one of my favorites because it has such a good beef flavor. I don’t know why I did not think of this before.
