Servings 2


  • 2 sirloin steaks (or other thin steaks)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 10 flour or corn tortillas
  • Butter and/or olive oil for cooking the steak (optional)


  • 1 shallot chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped finely
  • Little tomatoes (grape/cherry) to taste
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • Arugula to taste
  • Lettuce (I used butter leaf) to taste
  • Sour cream to taste
  • 1 lime quartered


  • Pre-heat oven to 350F to warm the tortillas. Wrap them in foil and place them in the oven.
  • Season both sides of the steaks with salt & pepper.
  • Prepare the toppings: chop the shallot and herbs, and slice the avocado and tomatoes into smaller pieces.
  • Cook the steak. Either fry it (I used a cast iron pan with a bit of butter and olive oil) or grill them (I like to brush on the mixture of olive oil and butter). A mixture of 1 tablespoon each butter and olive oil is a good starting point for either method.
  • Serve tacos with all the garnishes. Either top them all or let people pick what toppings they want. Finish with a squeeze of lime juice.
