Turn the script on #tacotuesday with these EASY beef street tacos!

Toasted corn tortillas are filled with tender and perfectly skilled skirt steak and easy toppings like: great deals of dice white onion and a lot more cilantro. Street tacos aren’t expected to be made complex. You can add tomato, lettuce … whatever. I choose mine with just onion and cilantro with a drizzle of hot sauce or salsa.

The simpler the much better.

To Make These Beef Street Tacos You Will Need:

  • olive oil — I like additional light. Something that has a high smoke point and is light in taste.
  • skirt steak — or attempt flank steak!
  • yellow onion
  • ground chipotle powder
  • chili powder
  • cumin— toasted (if you can discover it)
  • kosher salt
  • white corn tortillas
  • white onion
  • cilantro
  • hot sauce or salsa
  • diced tomato, optional

Start by carefully mincing 1-1/4 pounds skirt (or flank) steak. A sharp knife will make this task so a lot easier.

Drizzle 2 teaspoons olive oil into a 12- inch deep sided frying pan and heat on medium high heat. As soon as hot, include the minced skirt steak and 1 small finely diced yellow onion.

Stir, cook and till the pink is nearly all traces of pink are gone. Measure and add in the 3/4 teaspoon ground chipotle powder, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon cumin and 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste.

Stir and cook till the steak is no longer pink.

This meat is so tender and very tasty. You might use it in a lot of ways; on nachos, in a salad or stuffed into tacos.

While the meat is cooking, I rapidly toast the shells in a dry frying pan over medium-high heat.

Fill with a couple of spoonfuls of the meat mix and top with great deals of diced white onion and cilantro. From here on out, you can top with whatever your heart desires.
