Flatiron Steak and Caramelized Onion Tacos with Chipotle Crema

Flatiron Steak and Caramelized Onion Tacos with Chipotle Crema

Serves 8


1 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon kosher salt
½ tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chile powder
2 pounds flatiron steak, in 1 piece
2 tablespoons corn oil
2 red onions, thinly sliced
16 to 24 tortillas
Fresh chopped cilantro


Put the paprika, salt, pepper, bay leaves, cumin and chile powder in a bowl and mix together. Rub it on the steak. Cover with plastic and let rest in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours.

Warm the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onions over medium high heat until light golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the pan and add the beef. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes per side until medium rare, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Cut into thin slices. Add it back into the pan with the onions for 30 seconds.

In the meantime, warm the tortillas. Top the tortillas with the steak and onions and top with the chipotle crema. Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately.
