Ingredients
  • 1 pound sirloin steak
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • chimichurri sauce (recipe below)
  • cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • sour cream
Instructions
  1. Add olive oil to a pan or cast iron skillet and warm over medium-high heat. Salt and pepper both sides of the steak. Once the pan is warm, add steak, and sear to get a good crust (3 - 5 minutes), flip and sear the other side. Continue cooking until desired doneness, then remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into thin strips.
  2. In the same pan, add a little more olive oil, and lightly fry the corn tortillas, cooking around 30 seconds a side. You want them to get warm and pliable, but not cook them so long it gets crunchy.
  3. To assemble: pile steak onto warm tortilla, and top it with a drizzle of chimichurri sauce, some cherry tomatoes and a spoonful of sour cream. Throw some chimichurri sauce into a cup on the side for dipping!
