Steak Tostadas/Tacos

Meat Preparation

1.5 pounds of Grassfed Top Sirloin Steak cut into thin strips

1/2 tsp ground cumin

4 cloves garlic crushed

2 TBSP organic lime juice

1/4 cup of unfiltered organic olive oil

1 tsp Hungarian Paprika 

1 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

1.5 TBSP chopped fresh cilantro

Combine marindade ingredients and add beef, coating evenly.  Marinate in Fridge for 24 hours using a glass or ceramic container.



2 organic medium bell peppers finely diced

1 medium organic red onion finely diced

1 small organic zucchini finely diced

1/2 cup of organic fires roasted corn (optional)

1 clove fresh garlic

1 TBSP chopped fresh cilantro

(you can chop this a day ahead and store in the fridge)



1 to cups chopped organic romaine or bib lettuce

2 organic roma tomatoes finely chopped (roma have better consistency for this )

Salsa of your choice

Lime wedges


In a wok, extra large fry pan or skillet or on a griddle place half of meat an vegetables onto the cooking surface.  My griddle is set for 350 degrees.  You can add extra olive oil or a bit of coconut oil, but I found I did not need anything else.  When meat is browned flip it.  Flip vegetables as they become browned.  When meat is almost done I use my large metal spatula to cut the steak into smaller pieces. You can also do this easily in a Wok.  If you don’t want this step then when you initially prepare the steak, chop it into smaller pieces before you marinate.  


Serve on a tostada, corn tortilla, hard corn shell, on a grain free cassava tortilla or over lettuce.  Top with chopped tomato, lettuce and salsa.  You can also use shredded cheese (I prefer to be dairy free)
