Recipe Notes

  • Use skirt steak or flank steak for this easy recipe, and allow at least one hour to marinate the meat.
  • To make this meal gluten-free, use corn tortillas.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a plastic food storage bag. Add the steak and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 5 hours.
  2. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a skillet. Remove the steak from the marinade and cook it in the hot skillet until desired doneness. Remove the steak from the pan and allow it to rest while you make the peppers and onions.
  3. Add the peppers and onion to the pan and cook until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Slice the steak against the grain and serve with the peppers and onions in warmed tortillas with desired toppings.
