I learned how to make these tacos while a man from Oaxaca, Mexico lived with my family. They are traditional Mexican tacos and one of the best things I know how to make.
INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):
- 2 pounds top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 18 (6 inch) corn tortillas
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 4 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
- 4 limes, cut into wedges
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the steak strips, stirring constantly, until browned on the outside and cooked through, but not too firm, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
Heat the oil in the skillet, and quickly fry each tortilla on both sides, until lightly browned and flexible. Set aside, and keep warm.
Place tortillas on a plate, and top with steak strips, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro to taste. Squeeze lime juice over. Wrap and eat.
