Recipe: Taco Night

Since  coming back to the US, it is hard to get back into the swing of things. Call me crazy, but after laying around for a week I become so lazy it’s almost embarrassing.  I finally got off my butt the other day to make some delicious and simple (read: cheap) tacos for myself, The Russian, and my best friend (who is also of Russian decent, hope you’re sensing a theme here).


The best thing about these tacos aside from being easy to make and super filling is that you can add ingredients, take away ingredients, or switch ingredients and still end up with a easy dinner that can be pulled together by the most challenged of chefs (read: super easy).


Steak [$6]

small flour or corn tortillas [$2.50]

package of taco seasoning [$1]

limes [$2]

guacamole or salsa [around $5, I got mine for free from my job]


The most important part of this recipe is the seasoning on the steak.

I marinated the steak in vegetable oil, worshtshire sauce, salt, the taco seasoning, garlic powder, and the juice of half a lime.

Place the steak in a hot pan to cook, about 3-4 minutes per side for med. rare. Let rest on a plate or cutting board.


In the meantime, warm tortillas in a pan or oven.  slice steak and top tortillas. Add salsa and guac, a squeeze of lime and eat!

If you don’t have guac in your house already and don’t want to spend a lot, you can just buy and avocado for a dollar or so and slice it up on top.  I also suggest adding cheese, sour cream, or cilantro for an extra kick.  Personally, sometimes I like an uncomplicated steak taco so I can taste all the delicious flavors of the meat itself. This meal is super–easy finger food that can be made anytime you’re too busy to stand over a stove for hours!
