Thanks again to the Idaho Beef Council for helping us pay for the Beef which was prepared at our picnic! Here is a beef recipe you may enjoy:
Steak Street Tacos with Spicy Pico de Gallo
3 beef Flat Iron Steaks (about 1-1/2 pounds)
12 flour tortillas (5-inch diameter)
Spicy Pico de Gallo (recipe follows)
1 package (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend
1/2 cup prepared Italian dressing
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
Cut beef steaks lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/4-inch strips; set aside. Combine marinade ingredients in medium bowl. Place beef and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to 2 hours. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Preheat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add 1/2 of beef; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. (Do not overcook.) Repeat with remaining beef. Evenly divide beef strips over tortillas. Top with 1 tablespoon Spicy Pico de Gallo and 1 tablespoon cheese.
Spicy Pico de Gallo: Combine 1-1/2 cups chopped tomato, 1/2 cup finely chopped onion, 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro and 1 tablespoon minced jalapeño pepper in large bowl. Stir in 1/4 cup hot picante sauce or salsa and 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour to let flavors blend.
