- 1 pound Sirloin Tip Steaks, cut 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick
- Pico de Gallo (recipe follows)
- 3 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
- 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced bell pepper, any color
- 1/2 medium white onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
- 1 medium jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced
- 8 small whole wheat tortillas (about 6-inch diameter), warmed
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground chipotle Chile pepper
- Pico de Gallo: Combine ¾ cup chopped tomatoes, ¼ cup chopped white onion, 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, 2 teaspoons minced jalapeño pepper, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice in a medium bowl. Season with salt, as desired.
- Prepare Pico de Gallo. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
- Stack beef Sirloin Tip Steaks; cut lengthwise in half and then crosswise into 1-inch wide strips. Combine beef and rub ingredients in a large bowl; toss to coat evenly.
- Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add bell pepper, onion, and jalapeño; stir-fry 5 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
- Remove from skillet; keep warm.
- Cook’s Tip: A twelve-inch cast iron pan may be substituted for the large nonstick skillet. Cooking times will remain the same.
- Heat 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet until hot. Add half of beef; stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until the outside surface is no longer pink. Do not overcook.
- Remove from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and beef.
- Return all beef and vegetables to skillet. Season with salt, as desired. Serve beef mixture in tortillas; top with Pico de Gallo.
- Test Kitchen Tips: Stir-Fry beef in ½ pound batches (do not overcrowd) continuously turning with a scooping motion for best browning.
