At Mexican restaurants, we always order at least one steak taco—we just can’t resist the tender seared meat piled in warm tortillas with plenty of salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. In this Encore Recipe, Chef Michelle recreates the favorite dish with steak marinated in cumin, chipotle, oregano, and lime juice, then seared until smoky and medium rare. Complete with lime crema, sliced avocado, and jalapeño-studded pico de gallo, these tacos will add a touch of summery warmth to cold winter nights.
