Mexican Steak Burritos

 

These burritos are very yummy and use pretty much whatever cheap cut of beef you want for your steak. The marinade for the steak is easy and helps tenderize whatever cut of beef you decide to use for your steak. This steak I purchased was around $2 and is classified as “family steak” at my grocery store – whatever that means. So feel free to shop your clearance section to make these as pocket friendly as possible!

Ingredients:

  • Steak for burrito
  • Italian dressing
  • Lime juice from 1 lime
  • Fajita seasoning
  • Toppings for burrito like grilled veggies, cilantro lime rice, refried black beans, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, etc! 
  • Tortillas

1. Take a large ziploc bag and place your steak in there and give it a few big squeezes of Italian dressing, the juice of one lime, and several dashes of fajita seasoning. Then allow the marinade to work for a minimum of four hours or even overnight.

  

2. If you’re planning on veggies, I used two sweet onions and ten of those sweet mini peppers sautéed with two tablespoons of butter, a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. I cooked them for fifteen minutes over medium high heat, then added one chopped garlic clove and cooked for an additional five minutes.

   

  

3. For the steak, you can go outside and grill your steak, or if you live somewhere that going outside is terrible (like where I live), just cook your steak in your cast iron skillet inside. Drizzle a little oil in the pan, turn the heat up fairly high, and cook your steak to desired doneness. Personally, I like mine more of the rare end. That’s the beauty of cooking your own burritos!

 

  

 

4. Now start stuffing your burritos! I used whole wheat tortillas, refried black beans, cilantro lime rice,  lettuce, tomatoes, grilled veggies, and sour cream. So delicious!!!
