Fun and quick dinner for the entire family.


681 gm New York striploin, steak (medium to large sized filet)
2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (or to taste)
1/4 tsp Black pepper (or to taste)
8 small tortilla(s) Tortilla, corn (organic)
2 cup slices Avocado
1 fruit Lime (quartered)
2 tbsp Cilantro (coriander) (minced)


1. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.


2. For the steak: in a glass bowl or dish add olive oil, salt and pepper to the steak fillet, turning until the entire steak is covered. Add steak to the pan and cook approximately 5 minutes each side. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Slice the cooled steak.


3. For the tortillas: to the hot pan, add the corn tortillas to warm slightly, approximately 30 seconds each side. Wrap the warm tortillas in a clean dish towel until we are ready to plate.


4. To plate: place two tortillas on each plate. Divide the steak onto each tortilla. Divide avocado slices between the tortillas and a sprinkle of cilantro. Squeeze some lime juice.


5. Optional: serve with guacamole, pico de gallo and fresh salsa's for an authentic taco experience. See notes.


Quick Tips:

This recipe does not rate very high on the health rating, but when you add fresh pico de gallo, salsa and/or guacamole you improve the health rating.

A great healthy compliment to this dish would be a fresh garden salad.

For tortillas
