Adobo Lime Steak Tacos


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.

  • 1 pound flat iron steak, or to taste

  • 2 teaspoons adobo seasoning

  • 2 limes, cut into wedges, divided

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 (8 ounce) package small soft tortillas

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped

  • 1 (7 ounce) can salsa verde


  1. 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.

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

  3. 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.

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

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

  6. 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.
