The secret to the incredible flavor of these Steak Street Tacos lies in the homemade taco seasoning. With a combination of chili powder, cumin, coriander, garlic powder, and other spices, this seasoning blend elevates the taste of the steak to new heights. The recipe includes time-saving tips, encouraging you to make extra taco seasoning batches to have on hand for future Mexican or Tex-Mex dishes.

To achieve a perfect texture and taste, it is essential to broil the steak whole and slice it against the grain into thin pieces after allowing it to rest. This technique ensures that every bite of the steak is tender and succulent, tantalizing your palate with its rich flavors.

While the steak cooks under the broiler, take a moment to warm the mini corn tortillas. Placing them in a hot skillet for a short time will enhance their flavor and give them a touch of color. By wrapping them in foil, you can keep them warm while you prepare the rest of the dish.

To accompany the savory steak, we have a tangy and creamy sour cream and mayonnaise mixture seasoned with the homemade taco seasoning. This delightful concoction adds a burst of flavor to the tacos, complementing the other toppings beautifully.

Speaking of toppings, the possibilities are endless. The recipe suggests a variety of options such as sliced radishes, crumbled Cojita cheese, diced avocado, and chopped cilantro. These toppings bring a vibrant freshness to the tacos, but feel free to personalize them according to your preferences. Pico de gallo, salsa, and guacamole are fantastic alternatives that will enhance the overall taste.

Once everything is ready, it’s time to assemble your Steak Street Tacos. Layer two tortillas together, creating a sturdy base for the flavorful ingredients. Add a generous portion of the seasoned steak and top it off with your favorite toppings. Finish each taco with a dollop of the seasoned sour cream mixture and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. The combination of textures and flavors will explode in your mouth, leaving you craving more.

These Steak Street Tacos are not just a meal; they are an experience. Whether you’re hosting a gathering, enjoying a family dinner, or simply indulging in a satisfying meal for one, these tacos will transport you to the vibrant streets of Mexico.

  • ½ c. sour cream

  • ½ c. mayonnaise

  • 3 T. taco seasoning, divided

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil

  • Toppings
  • Shown: Sliced radishes, Cojita cheese, diced avocado, and/or chopped cilantro.

  • Pico de gallo, salsa, and/or guacamole would be delicious alternatives, as well


  • Prepare the taco seasoning by combining all ingredients in a small bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • Place the top oven rack in the second position from top and pre-heat broiler to “High.” Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  • Place a large 12” cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, and one tablespoon taco seasoning together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Place the flank steak on the prepared baking sheet and evenly brush the olive oil over both sides. Evenly sprinkle one tablespoon taco seasoning over the steak. Generously season with sea salt before turning. Repeat on the other side with the remaining taco seasoning and a little more salt.
  • Place the steak under the broiler for 5-7 minutes, turning once halfway through, or until it reaches the desired level of doneness.
  • While the steak is broiling, add two corn tortillas to the hot skillet. Heat until they are warmed through and develop a bit of color, approximately 30 seconds to one minute. Flip with tongs and repeat on the remaining side. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a large sheet of aluminum foil (or a tortilla warmer, if you have one). 
  • Repeat Step 7 with the remaining tortillas. Wrap the tortillas in the aluminum foil while working on the rest to keep warm.
  • When ready, remove the steak from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting against the grain into thin slices. Transfer the steak to a medium bowl and toss with the fresh lime juice. Set aside.

    Tip: Continue warming the rest of the tortillas while the steak rests
  • To serve, layer two tortillas together, as shown, and add some of the seasoned steak and your choice of toppings, such as sliced radishes, crumbled Cojita cheese, diced avocado, or fresh cilantro. Top each taco with a dollop of the seasoned sour cream mixture and serve immediately with additional lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
