Steak Tacos

Happy Taco Tuesday! πŸ™‚ I was in the mood for steak tacos tonight so that’s exactly what I made. I bought flank steak to give it a try and I must admit its a tough piece of meat to cook. Seeing how its a tougher piece of meat to begin with if you don’t cook it just right (best served medium rare) you will be chewing on rubber. I was impressed that I didn’t ruin it but I will not be buying flank steak again I don’t think. It seems much easier to buy the cut of steak you prefer (a thicker cut) and then cut it into strips for your tacos. I made my usual guacamole because what’s a taco without guacamole? Boring! … I seasoned the steak on both sides with garlic, olive oil, salt & pepper, dry mustard, & a little brown sugar. Then place it in a hot pan with olive oil to sear on both sides for 2 to 3 minutes (each side). Then leave steak in pan on low or simmer setting for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and place steak on cutting board covered with foil for 10 minutes (it will continue to cook). Then cut steak diagonal into strips. I made a salsa with fresh corn shaved off the cob, cherry tomatoes cut in halves, diced jalapeno & onion and squeeze lime juice on top. Yes, I cheated and made spanish rice from the box with diced garlic tomatoes for a side and it was sooooo yummy! That’s it! Dress your tacos and serve with rice. ENJOY!
