Steak Tacos with Avocado Tomato Salsa
STEAK TACOS With Avocado Tomato Salsa
Mexican Restaurant Recipe
3 medium tomatoes, halved and cored
1 fresh Serrano chili, stemmed
1 pound flank steak
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons finely diced red onion
3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
2 large ripe avocados, halved and pitted
2 limes, cut into wedges
8 fresh corn tortillas
Place tomatoes and chili on a roasting tray and set under the broiler. Roast, turning once, until charred all over, about 12 minutes total. Place charred tomatoes and chili in a food processor and pulse until a coarse salsa forms, about 1 minute. Season with salt to taste. Set aside. Season steak with salt. Set a grill pan over high heat. Once pan is very hot, swirl in oil. Lay in steak and sear until charred and medium rare 3-5 minutes per side. Remove steak from heat and set aside.
In a small bowl, toss onions with cilantro and a pinch of salt. In another small bowl, make guacamole: Mash avocado with a fork. Season to taste with juice from a few lime wedges and salt.
Set a stove top burner to high. Using tongs, hold each tortilla over burner until soft and charred in spots, less than 1 minute per side. Slice steak thinly against the grain.
Serve: Smear guacamole over tortillas. Top with sliced steak and onion-cilantro mixture. Serve with salsa and remaining lime wedges on the side
