Hellooo Taco Tuesday.
Not like I really need Tuesday as an excuse to eat tacos, but hey, if society will accept it, then I say indulge. Every. Damn. Tuesday.
We just recently started doing 'Family Dinner' once a week which is basically me just cooking for all of my friends and they pay for it. But it's a great excuse to have some weeknight fun and spend some time together. And I honestly LOVE cooking for other people, and being 22 and unmarried/childless (not complaining), I don't get to do that very often. So they pay, I cook, my roommate cleans (God bless her), and #TuckThePuppy gets an insane amount of love. It's a win-win for everyone.
This week we opted for Adobo Steak Tacos. It's another One Pan Weeknight Dinner, because honestly- who wants to take on a huge ordeal when you have guests over? This was quick to throw together. I was able to do the prep in advance, throw it all in one pan, and hang out with my friends until dinner was ready.
Abodo Steak Tacos with Peppers and Onions
1 (1.5 -lb.) flank steak
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp. ground cumin, divided
3 tablespoon plus 1 tsp. adobo sauce, divided
4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 lb. Tomatillos, husk removed & quartered
1 onion, cut into large slices
2 Bell Peppers (any color- I used red & yellow)
1. Place flank steak in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Stir together lime juice, next 2 ingredients, 1 Tbsp. cumin, 3 Tbsp. adobo sauce, and 2 tsp. kosher salt in a small bowl. Whisk in 1/4 cup olive oil, and pour over flank steak. Seal bag, and turn to coat. Chill 1 to 12 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 450°. Cut tomatillos into quarters. Stir together onion, bell peppers, tomatillos, and remaining 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. adobo sauce, 2 tsp. salt, and 2 Tbsp. oil in a large bowl. Spread sweet potato mixture in an even layer in a heavy-duty aluminum foil-lined sheet pan.
3. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and move veggie mixture to outer edges of pan. Place flank steak in center of pan. Increase oven temperature to broil.
4. Broil 6 minutes. Turn steak over, and broil 6 minutes more. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak across the grain, and drizzle with pan drippings.
Serve with Flour/Corn tortillas, sour cream, fresh cilantro & lime wedges
