The simplest but yummiest of snacks.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g thick rump steak
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
12 fresh flour tortillas, (see note)
1 bunch coriander, chopped
1/4 white onion, finely chopped
salsa of your choice

Method

  1. Season the steak with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy frying pan over a high heat. Cook the steak for 2–3 minutes on each side or until browned – the meat should still be juicy and pink in the middle when cut with a knife. Chop the steak into strips, set aside and keep warm.
  3. If using fresh tortillas, brush a little water over them and then wrap up a couple at a time in a clean tea towel. For store-bought tortillas, just wrap a couple at a time (with no water) in a clean tea towel. Place them in the microwave and cook on high (100%) for 30 seconds.
  4. To serve, place a tortilla on each plate, top with 2–3 strips of beef and scatter over the fresh coriander, onion and salsa.

Note

  • If making fresh tortillas (you can save time by using store-bought tortillas if you wish), place 300 g plain flour in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil or lard and combine with clean fingertips until a sand-like consistency is achieved. Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon salt in 125 ml warm water and add this to the flour. Work the dough with your hands, adding extra water if needed to form a smooth, non-sticky dough that is easy to handle. Divide into 6 equal portions. Form tortillas using a tortilla press or by rolling the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper with a rolling pin until very thin. Cook the tortillas in a lightly oiled frying pan over a high heat for about 1 minute on each side. Keep the tortillas warm by wrapping them in a clean tea towel.
