  • 1 pound skirt steak
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Eight 6-inch corn tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • Sour cream, guacamole, salsa and shredded Mexican-blend cheese, for serving


Cut the steak along the grain into 3-inch pieces, then slice each piece across the grain into 1/3-inch-thick strips. Toss the steak in a medium bowl with the chili powder, oregano, sugar, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Meanwhile, wrap the tortillas in a clean dishtowel, and microwave at 100 percent for 1 minute. Let sit, wrapped in the dishtowel, until ready to serve.

When the skillet is hot, add the oil. Add the seasoned steak in an even layer. Don't stir for 2 minutes, then give the steak a good stir and let cook until browned, about 1 1/2 minutes more. Transfer the steak to a medium bowl. Immediately add the onions to the skillet, and stir until brown and slightly softened, about 1 1/2 minutes; transfer to the bowl with the steak, and stir to combine.

Set up a taco bar with the steak and onions, wrapped tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, salsa and cheese.
