INSTRUCTIONS FOR COOKING:
Rub steaks with olive oil, Salt and Pepper. Grill as desired.
Grill peppers by laying over grill and turn once when tender, making sure there is grill marks. Remove from grill and slice into strips. Keep warm in a side dish – reserve for tacos.
Mix olive oil, chili powder, lime juice and garlic together. Spread this mixture over the steaks as they grill. Save a little of this mixture for after steak is cooked to your liking. We are using it for the corn.
Remove steaks from grill and let set for about 10 minutes. Then, slice steak into strips and toss in a bowl with remaining lime juice and spice mixture.
Add sliced steak to each tortilla, and top with cucumber, avocado, baby greens, tomatoes, cilantro and sliced grilled peppers.
Steamed or Grilled. Take remaining chili-lime and spice mixture and blend with some softened butter. Mix well and paint over the corn on the cob as it’s removed from grill. Serve with tacos!
