Steak Taco Salad Bowls

  Steak Taco Salad Bowls recipe pictures

A month or so ago my work sent every employee a box of freezer-packed Omaha steaks. There were burgers, filet, sirloin and I think strip too. I can’t remember exactly which cuts we got because I don’t typically eat red meat. I know these were good steaks and that we definitely needed to come up with a fun recipe.

I am not the type to cook a steak and just eat it as is. I know…feel free to call me crazy. It’s just not my thing. But steak seasoned and tossed together with other ingredients, now we’re onto something. We decided to give the steak a kick then toss it together with other ingredients and transform a filet into a Steak Taco Salad. Wow it was so good!!

For the Marinade
  1. 1 teaspoon chili powder
  2. 1 teaspoon cumin
  3. ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  4. ½ teaspoon salt
  5. ¼ teaspoon pepper
  6. juice of 1 lime
  7. 3 tablespoon olive oil
For the Dressing
  1. ½ cup Greek Yogurt (we use 0% fat)
  2. ¼ cup salsa
  3. 1 tablespoon dry ranch dressing mix
  4. couple dashes hot sauce
For the Salad
  1. 2 4-ounce steaks (we used filet because it's what we had on hand)
  2. 5 cups romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
  3. ½ cup Colby Jack cheese, shredded
  4. ½ cup grape tomatoes, halved
  5. ¼ cup black olives, sliced
  6. 6 tortillas
  7. olive oil
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Whisk in the juice of 1 lime and olive oil. Submerge the steaks in the marinade and let sit for 15-30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a cupcake pan with cooking spray. Take 6 corn tortillas and gently press each one into the hole of a standard cupcake pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until tops become golden and crisp. Remove the 'bowls' from the oven and flip them upside down onto a cookie sheet. Bake for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  3. To make the dressing, stir together Greek yogurt, salsa, and Ranch dry mix. Add a couple dashes of hot sauce, stir to combine and set aside.
  4. While the tortillas bake, pop the steaks on a medium-high grill. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from grill, let sit for 5 minutes then cut the steak into thin pieces.
  5. Toss together the lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and olives. Add the steak too then place a heaping spoonful into each corn tortilla bowl. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.
