This week we are making Steak Quesadillas!
- 1 – 1 1/2 pound beef sirloin steak
- 1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning
- 2 tablespoons canola or avocado oil (plus extra for drizzling)
- 2 green bell peppers, seeded and diced
- 1 white onion, diced
- 8 flour tortillas
- 12 ounces (about 2 cups) freshly grated Monterrey Jack Cheese
Cutting against the grain, slice the steak with a very sharp knife into thin strips, no more than a 1/4″ thick. Transfer to a mixing bowl, along with the taco seasoning. Massage the taco seasoning into the beef until evenly coated and set aside.
Add oil to a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated through, spread the steak strips evenly across the skillet and allow to sear for 1 1/2 minute. Do not jostle or move strips around. Turn the steak strips over and cook 1-2 minutes.
If the pan is dry, add another 1-2 tablespoons of oil. Add the diced peppers and onion and sauté 5-7 minutes, stirring often, until softened. Transfer the vegetables to a small bowl and set aside.
Wipe the pan clean and place over medium-low heat. Add a light drizzle of oil to the pan and allow to come to temperature.
Carefully, place 1 flour tortilla on the pan and scatter about a 1/4 cup of shredded cheese over the entire tortilla. Then, to only one half of the tortilla, add steak strips and a scatter of the onion and pepper mixture.
Once the cheese starts to melt (about 1 minute), use a spatula to fold the side with cheese only over the steak side. Hold the quesadilla down with your spatula until the filling has melded together, about 30 seconds to 1 minute more.
Repeat with the remaining tortillas, adding an additional light drizzle of oil to the pan as needed. Cut in halves or quarters, serve and enjoy!
