Steak Tacos Recipe

Steak Tacos
If you like steak, peppers and onions you will love steak tacos. I have wanted to make steak tacos for along time and tonight I finally went through with it. I got this recipe from Cooking Light and once I saw the ingredients I had a feeling it was going to be good. I was surprised at how little time I actually took to make them. Just a little time for prep work, a little sautéing and they are on table. The vegetables are first stir fried, then the steak is sautéed for a few minutes and then tossed with a few amazing ingredients. The major flavor enhancers in this recipe are the lime juice and fresh garlic. If you don’t like steak feel free to try this recipe with shrimp instead. I serve these tacos with a side dish of flavored rice.

    These look really good. I made some a couple of weeks ago – our family loves taco and burritos.

    Try serving with a tastey tahini/yoghurt sauce or yooghurt/cucumber sauce or even a sour cream sauce. Wow did a real sauce make this steak taco sing!

    Wow, just finished these for dinner, I modified the recipe as I didn’t have lime or lemon juice, flour tortillas, and parsley substituted for parsely. This is a keeper, can’t wait to try it again with all the ingredients.
