    Classic Mexican Steak Tacos (Gluten-Free)

    Jefferson Adams


    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Few foods bring me as much joy as a good taco. Simple, cheap, versatile and oh, so tasty, a good taco is one of the staples that can nurse me through a time-pressured lunch and keep a smile on my face all day long.

    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.
