  • 1 tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1.5 pound Steak Flank, Sirloin or Skirt steak, Thinly sliced into 1/2 inch strips
  • 2 tsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Onion powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch
  • Salt To taste
  • Black pepper To taste
  • 1/2 cup Red pepper Sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup Green pepper Sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup Onion Sliced into thin strips
  • 1-2 tsp Lemon juice Or lime juice


  • Heat butter and oil in a nonstick pot or pan over medium-high heat. 
  • Add steak and sprinkle chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic, cayenne pepper, cumin powder, cornstarch, salt, pepper and mix everything together.
  • Saute for about 2 minutes or until steak slices are slightly brown and no longer pink and raw on the outside. It won't be fully cooked through! 
  • Add red pepper, green pepper, onion and saute everything until steak is cooked through and vegetables are tender. 
  • Turn off heat. Pour lemon juice and toss everything together.
  • Garnish with cilantro, if you like. Serve in hard or soft tacos and enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
