Steak Street Tacos

Here we are again with another taco recipe – we all know my love (and slight obsession) with tacos. This recipe is probably my best yet though. It’s easy and the closest I have gotten to authentic street tacos that I crave on a regular basis. It is also probably the fewest ingredients I have ever used in a taco seasoning recipe – but I think that is why they are so good.. less is more here! My go to toppings are pretty basic – diced onions, crema, red and green salsas, and sometimes cheese if I’m feeling fun! The key here is to dice the steak fairly small to replicate those street taco ~vibes~. Also make sure you slice the steak before you marinate it, it’s much easier to deal with and then you can just dump it in a pan from the bowl you use to marinate it! Let me know what you think of this taco recipe and which one is your favorite.

  • 1.5lbs Flank Steak
  • 1 Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 4 Tbsp Cumin
  • 2 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp Adobo Pepper, Sauce Only (from the can)
  • 3 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • 3 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 12 Street Taco Tortillas
  • Optional Toppings: Diced Onions, Jalapenos, Cheese, Salsa, Avocado, Guacamole, Sour Cream, Lime Crema, Cilantro
  • Makes: ~12 Tacos
  • Prep Time: 30-60 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 Minutes
  • Total Time: 50-80 Minutes

To Make:

  1. Slice the steak in to ~1/4th inch cubes – you want them to be fairly small to mimic authentic street tacos.
  2. In a large bowl, add the steak, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic, lime juice and adobo sauce. Set aside and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes – the longer the better to let the steak absorb all the flavors. I let mine marinate for about 2 hours prior to cooking. While its marinating, prep all the other ingredients and toppings you want to use.
  3. When the steak has been marinating and you are ready to cook, heat a large pan over medium heat and add in the olive oil.
  4. Once hot, add in the diced onion and cook for 3-5 minutes until they start to soften.
  5. Next add in the steak and cook for another 8-10 minutes until the steak is cooked through.
  6. Now its time for assembly! Add the steak on top of the tortillas and add your favorite toppings. *I served mine family style – so I prepped all the ingredients and let each person grab their own plate and pile on whatever toppings they wanted, makes it much more fun.*
