Authentic Steak Tacos

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds top sirloin steak cut into small chunks or thin slices (you can also use leftover steak)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • minced garlic to taste
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 16-20 corn tortillas
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 4 fresh jalapeno peppers or other hot peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 3-5 limes
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • Squeeze the juice of 3 limes onto your chopped meat, and let the meat marinade for at least one hour.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the steak chunks & minced garlic, stirring constantly, until browned on the outside and cooked through – about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  • Heat the oil in the skillet, and quickly fry each tortilla on both sides, until lightly browned and flexible. Set aside, and keep warm. Don’t over fry – they only need about a minute or less on each side.
  • Top corn tortillas with steak, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro to taste. Squeeze lime juice over. Wrap and eat.
