This refreshing steak taco is best topped with guacamole, sour cream, and salsa verde. Paired with a good Mexican beer, it will make your evening. I prefer soft tortillas, but you can use hard tacos if you like.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Season the steak all over with adobo seasoning. Squeeze 1 lime half onto the steak and rub garlic all over it. Place on a dish and refrigerate, at least 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat oil in an ovenproof pan over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook until a crust forms, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook until crusty on the other side, about 5 minutes more.

  • Bake steak in the preheated oven until tender, about 30 minutes. Allow steak to cool, about 15 minutes. Slice against the grain.

  • Place tortillas on a plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Heat in the microwave until fluffy and warm, about 1 minute.

  • Place a portion of steak slices on a tortilla, top with sliced onion and cilantro. Squeeze remaining lime juice on top and add some salsa verde. Repeat with remaining tortillas, steak, onion, and cilantro.

In Canada this steak is called a blade steak I could not find them anywhere I used 2 eye of round steaks instead. My steaks were smallish so I reduced the cooking time 2 1/2 minutes each side in cast iron pan then 15 minutes in the oven. They were well done next time maybe pan only to make them more medium for my husband. The meat was very flavourful though and I would definitely use the method again I think on chicken would be good too. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #TacoLove #FacelessNoMore Read More
