Preparation Instructions

 

Thaw the Reuven Fully Cooked Beef Strips for at least 30 minutes and pat dry.


Marinate the beef strips: Mix all marinade ingredients. Coat the beef with the marinade and let it sit for an hour.


Before you warm the meat, wipe off most of the marinade and sprinkle with salt.


Sear the beef on both sides: Set a large cast iron pan or griddle over high heat and let this heat up for 1-2 minutes. Add the tablespoon of oil to the pan and let this heat up for 1 minute. Add the beef strips, frying on each side for 1 minute, or to desired brownness.


Remove from pan and let sit for 5 minutes.


Cook the vegetables while the meat is resting. Add a little more oil to the pan if necessary, then add the onions and bell peppers. Let these sear for 1 minute before stirring, then stir every 90 seconds or so as the veggies sear. Cook for 5-6 minutes total.

 

Add beef strips back to veggies and stir for 1 minute. Serve immediately with shredded cheese, salsa, shredded iceberg lettuce, sour cream, avocado and warm flour tortillas. (Hint for warming tortillas - put in microwave over a paper towel for 20 seconds on high heat.)
