Peppered Steak and Caramelized Onion Tacos
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 2-3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1.5 pounds flank steak/top round steak/whatever cut you like, sliced thinly
  • 2-3 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 5 or 6 6-inch flour tortillas
  • crumbled queso fresco, for topping (or another cheese)
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Toss the steak with the black pepper and add to the hot skillet. Cook for 2 minutes or so, until just browned (do NOT overcook) and place on a baking sheet and/or wire rack and cover with foil to keep warm.
  2. Add in the onion and lower the heat to medium. Cook until golden, about 8-10 minutes. Add in the garlic and saute for another minute or so, until fragrant. Add in the steak pieces again and cook until heated through, about another minute or so.
  3. Heat your flour tortillas in the oven or in a dry frying pan, then top with the steak and onion mixture. Sprinkle crumbled queso fresco or another cheese over the taco and serve. Serves 4.
