Since we started receiving our meat from Butcher Box back in January, we’ve eaten more steak than I think I have ever eaten in my entire life. This is not something we’re complaining about! I usually receive four 10 ounce steaks in each shipment and we cook two for a meal. That means two steak meals in one month, which feels totally indulgent.
One night, I was really craving my AIP tortillas, but I had steaks thawed out for that night’s dinner. So what else could I do but make steak tacos?
I’ve been buying one new vegetable or fruit each week just to expand our palates a bit and it just so happened that I had a jicama in the fridge, which I thought would be perfect as a topping for our tacos. If you’ve never tried jicama, I highly recommend it. The texture is like an apple and it’s slightly sweet, but mostly just refreshing and crunchy. It’s perfect for a snack or as part of a salad.
So all of this just sort of fell together and the result was amazing. If you make the tortillas ahead of time, this meal comes together pretty fast. The tortillas are delicious and you REALLY CAN pick them up and they will stay together, but they’re a tiny bit fussy. I did make a video showing you the process. It’s not hard, just fussy. That’s why I usually double the recipe. And they reheat really well!
I hope you make this recipe the next time you have steak on hand. The tacos are delicious and really special.
