Quick Carne Asada

As a working family, with a daughter who has boat-loads of homework, we are always looking for quick weeknight meals.

This meat was cooked so quickly, that it is perfect for any night of the week. You cam serve it as a main dish, or as a side.
I had some tortillas left over so decided to make steak tacos out of it.

Learn from me....soft corn tortillas do not make for awesome tacos. The taste is yum, but they broke apart all over the place. Daughter and hubby went back for seconds...and a fork and knife! They just piled everything on and ate it as is. Whatever works!

1 Lb flank steak
Red, green, or yellow peppers
1 Onion
1 Tbsp oil
¼ Tsp salt
¼ Tsp pepper

1. Slice steak into ½ inch strips, cutting against the grain
2. Slice peppers and onions
3. Heat oil in frying pan and begin to cook meat
4. Season with salt and pepper
5. Add in peppers and onions and cover for 5 minutes
6. Stir occasionally
7. Cook until juices have reduced and meat is cooked through

Basic ingredients. I did add a bit of garlic powder while it was cooking

Yes, I ambushed him in the kitchen. Thankfully he is a patient man.
