>Tasty Tuesdays: Steak Soft Tacos


5314edLately i’ve found that some of the simplest recipes tend to produce the tastiest meals. The less ingredients the better. Or maybe its more about choosing a few powerful yet complementary flavors and letting them be the star of the show.

I have a fondness for cilantro, lime, and onions. These three flavors emote feelings of freshness and summer. Throw them together and you’ve got yourself a crave worthy feast. Unless of course you’re one of those people who thinks cilantro tastes like soap. In that case, you probably need a hug. Tragic i say.

For today’s post i’m not going to be linking to a full step by step recipe. I personally don’t think its something you’ll need to print out. You more than likely already make a version of these tacos yourself. If not, this is so simple you should give it a whirl!

All you need is the following;
  • Steak. (Husby and i like to get the precut stewing steak from our local grocery store. Its already cut into small bite size pieces and also has almost all of the fat trimmed off.It also tends to be extremely cheap in our neck of the woods.)
  • Tortillas. (Flour or corn. Corn is my favorite but all we had at the moment were flour.)
  • Limes. Cut into wedges.
  • Cilantro. Cut or pulled apart for easy toppings.
  • An onion. Diced.
  • Seasonings. (Such as salt, pepper, Mrs. Dash, Vegeta, etc.)
  • Oil. (optional)

That’s it!


First you heat up a tablespoon of oil over medium heat in a skillet. Personally i think you could skip the oil all together. Husby says you need it. I say you be the judge of that.

Then once the oil / pan is hot, carefully add in your precut meat. Add in seasonings to taste. We prefer a mixture of pepper, Mrs. Dash, and a bit of Vegeta. Have fun with it just don’t go crazy. Remember, simple = better here.

Stir occasionally. If your meat mixture seems to be too watery, drain as needed. While that is cooking, cut up your onion, limes, and cilantro. Easy peasy.

Husby and i like our steak meat (in taco form) browned and cooked thoroughly. No gray meat ya’ll! Nice and brown. Maybe even a little charred. 

Once your meat is cooked to your preference, scoop into tortillas (double up if corn since they will be fragile, or you can fry them up into shells, but we enjoy them as is.)

Add onions and cilantro, and squeeze some fresh lime juice to top it off.

You can also of course top them with cheese, sour cream, etc. I did one taco with the additional toppings and one without, and i must say, i totally preferred the one without cheese and sour cream. 


Husby began questioning who i was since i’ve never turned down cheese on a taco before. Poor thing.

Take my word for it, simple = win.
