Angie Horkan from the Wisconsin Beef Council stopped by News 8 This Morning and shared a few taco recipes:

Skirt Steak Street Tacos

Total Recipe Time: 25 minutes

Makes 6 tacos


1 Skirt Steak, cut into 4 to 6-inch portions (1-1/2 to 2 pounds), sliced across the grain into thin strips OR 1 Flank Steak (1-1/2 to 2 pounds), sliced across the grain into thin strips
12 six-inch corn tortillas
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon oil
1 cup diced onion
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage

Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette:

3/4 cup cilantro leaves
Juice from 2 limes
1/3 cup olive oil
4 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup white vinegar
4 teaspoons sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream


Heat oil over medium heat. Season sliced steak with salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Add steak to pan and sauté until cooked through (about 8-10 minutes). Add garlic and sauté 1-2 minutes longer until garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat and dice steak. Whisk together all ingredients for vinaigrette. Add mixture to a blender and pulse 1-2 minutes until smooth. Add ¼-1/3 cup steak to each tortilla (hot tip: if you microwave them for 30-45 seconds they’ll be easier to handle and super delicious!) top steak with cabbage, onions, and chopped cilantro. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
