Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This simple, flavorful recipe is made almost completely on the grill. Even the tortillas are warmed on your barbecue. There's so much natural flavor, there's no need for cheese or sour cream! But we won't fault you if you serve a dairy-free dollop on the side.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 pound lean, hormone-free ribeye steak (strip, sirloin or flank)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into fourths lengthwise
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into fourths lengthwise
  • 1 medium-hot Poblano pepper, seeded and cut into fourths lengthwise
  • 1 medium yellow or purple onion, horizontally sliced (rings kept intact)
  • 8 small tortillas (gluten-free or flour)
  • Pico de gallo or salsa, for serving
  • Guacamole, for serving
  1. Dust the steak with the black pepper, cumin, and chili powder, and refrigerate for 2 or more hours.
  2. When ready to cook, place the peppers and onion slices on the grill over medium heat. Turn frequently until the vegetables are covered with dark spots, but not burnt. Remove from the grill and cool for about 4 minutes.
  3. Pull the skins off the peppers and slice into strips. Break the onion slices into rings and toss with the peppers in a serving bowl.
  4. Place the steak on the grill. Cook, turning frequently, until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Remove from the grill and cut diagonally into thin slices.
  5. Warm and soften the tortillas on the edge of the grill, away from direct heat.
  6. Roll the steak, pepper, and onion slices into the tortillas.
  7. Serve with pico de gallo or salsa and guacamole.
