This recipe will help you deliver delicious steak tacos that will put smiles on the faces of your family or guests.

Ingredients:
1 pound top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
10-12 corn tortillas - 6-inch
1 small onion, diced
4 fresh jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
6 limes, cut into wedges
2 cups fresh cilantro, chopped
Favorite taco sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
If possible, grill the steak to medium rare, and slice it into thin strips. Squeeze juice from two limes onto meat and season with salt and pepper.

If you can't grill the steak, then heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the steak strips, stirring constantly, until meat is brown on the outside and cooked medium rare, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

Place tortillas on a plate, top with steak strips, squeeze a dash of lime, add onion, and cilantro. Top with your favorite taco sauce, wrap and eat.

Makes 10-12 tacos.
