It’s not Tuesday, but I made tacos. My mom was planning on grilling eggplant so I decided, i’d go to the grocery store and buy steak. I haven’t had steak in a while and since the gril was going to be on, why not kill two birds with one stone.
Now, I’m no master at the grill and i’m definitely not a master at steak. I don’t know how to choose the right cut. I just choose what’s inexpensive. I’m not picky when it comes to meat. It all tastes the same to me. I apologize to all the steak connoisseurs out there.
At first, I was just going to grill a steak. But then I remembered that we had tortillas. You got to utilize what you have right? So the thought came to make steak tacos.
As far as the type of steak I bought, I chose beef chuck steak. It was about 1-inch thick and it was the least expensive. While at the grocery store, I also purchased a bunch of cilantro and pre-diced onions.
When I got home, I [garlic] salted the steak. While I let it sit for a while, I decided I didn’t want to grill outside. It was too hot and I didn’t want my mom to have to wait for me to finish or vice versa. So I ended up searing it in a pan. As I let the steak marinate, I heated and oiled up the pan. When it was hot enough, I seared each side for about 6 minutes and it came out medium rare, which is mostly how I like it!
When it was done, I sliced it up into pieces, placed it in my flour tortillas & topped with the diced onions and chopped cilantro. For some reason I had a tough time chopping cilantro. Hopefully, I’ll be better next time.
And then voila! I was done making dinner. I was too hungry to open up the store bought salsa, but the cilantro and onion gave it some flavor!
Cooking is all about experimenting and using things you have available.
If you think what I wrote sounds good, here are the ingredients I used:
- beef chuck steak
- garlic salt to season
- oil (I would’ve used olive oil, but I only had vegetable oil)
- diced onions
- chopped cilantro
- your choice of salsa
Obviously, you can add your favorite taco seasonings and toppings, but I wanted simplicity. But mostly, it was a last minute craving.
What did you have for dinner today?
