Thinly slicing tougher cuts of meat, such as beef chuck eye steak, flank steak and skirt steak, ensures tenderness. Tip: Pop the steak in the freezer for about 20 minutes before slicing--it should be firm but not frozen. Hold a chef's knife at a 45-degree angle to the meat and thinly cut across the grain.


  • 3 tablespoons chili-lime hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
  • 1 green sweet peppers, cut into strips
  • 1/2 large red onion, sliced
  • 1 medium-size zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 8 ounces boneless beef chuck eye steak, cut into very thin slices
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
  • Sour cream, salsa and cilantro sprigs (optional)


  1. In a large shallow dish combine hot sauce, oil, and marjoram. Add beef, zucchini, sweet pepper, and red onion; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours tossing once. Drain.
  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, place beef and vegetables in a grill basket directly over medium-high heat. Cover and grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until meat is browned, stirring once . Remove basket from grill. Place tortillas on grill rack. Cover and grill for 1 minute, turning once.
  3. Divide beed and vegetables among tortillas. Sprinkle with cilantro and black pepper. Top with sour cream, salsa, and cilantro sprigs, if desired.


  • To thinly slice the beef, freeze beef for 20 minutes before slicing, or just until beef is firm but not frozen.
