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!
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?
