4 servings

  • Mexican Tortillas (makes 12 x 20 cm diameter tortillas):
  • 420 g ordinary flour.
  • 1 teaspoon (3 g) baking powder.
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) salt
  • 70 ml grape seed oil.
  • 250 ml warm water. ‘Warm’ is 35-40 degrees Celsius

  • For the Steak:
  • 3 New York steaks, totaling 750 grams
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon (30 ml) olive oil

  • Side Dishes
  • 1 Red onions, about 170 g
  • 90 ml apple cider vinegar
  • 40 g sugar
  • ½ – 1 teaspoon (3 g) salt
  • 180 g lettuce
  • 12 slices cheese
  • 60 ml tomato ketchup

Pickle the Onion : Peel the onion and slice as thin as possible. ake a suitably sized jar, pour in the apple cider vinegar, sugar and salt, and stir quickly so the sugar and salt dissolve completely. Put the onion slices into the jar and pickle for 2 hours.

Make the Tortillas Add the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl of your mixer, and whisk to combine. The moisture content of tortilla dough is relatively high, so it’s very sticky to handle. It’s best to let your mixer or bread machine do the work.

Slowly pour in the grape seed oil while stirring. After all the grape seed oil is poured in, the flour should resemble bread crumbs.

Crush out any lumps with your hand. Next, slowly pour in the warm water, while stirring quickly.

Attach your dough hook, and mix the dough on low speed. This should not take long, mix only until the dough is smooth and even,

Sprinkle some flour on a chopping board to prevent the dough sticking. Using a silicone scraper or other tool, remove the dough from the mixer bowl and form into one shape on the chopping board. Cut into 12 equal sized portions.

Knead each portion by hand into a sphere and put them into a non-stick pot or a baking pan (the diameter of the baking dish below is 24 cm, perfect for 12 portions). Cover with plastic wrap and leave them to relax for 30 minutes.

The relaxation time can be longer, and it is perfectly fine to put the dough into the fridge overnight and cook them the next day.

Place a portion of dough on a floured surface and press it into a round shape. Gently roll it out thin (after relaxing the dough, it will be very soft, so rolling will not take much effort). While rolling the dough, you will need to constantly turn the tortilla to achieve a uniform thickness. If the dough is sticky, sprinkle some more flour on the rolling surface.

Always roll the tortilla to about 22 cm diameter to allow for shrinkage when it is cooked.

The tortilla should color and blister within 30 seconds if not, the pan temperature is too low. If the pan is not hot enough, the tortillas will dry out due to prolonged heat, and the flavor will not be as nice.

Cook the Steak Take the steak out of the refrigerator half an hour before you intend to cook it, so it returns to room temperature. If it is frozen, thaw the steak in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

13 )
Sprinkle the salt and black pepper evenly on both sides of the steak. Drizzle some olive oil over the surface of the steak and gently massage in with your hands. This will combine the salt and pepper and result in better flavor.

Preheat a 26 cm heavy based stainless steel pan for 3 minutes, and quickly put the steak into the pan. You will not need any extra oil since the steak has oil rubbed all over it. When you first put the steak on the bottom of the pan, place one end in and lie it down in the direction away from you to avoid splashing yourself with oil. Fry the steak for one minute and flip over. Doing this five times is equivalent to frying each side once for 3 minutes.

Use the tongs to sit the steak on its sides and fry each for 30 seconds.

Place the fried steak on a plate and cover with aluminum foil for 5 minutes. If the room temperature is low, or it is winter, you may need to heat the plate a little, to maintain the steak’s temperature.

Using a very sharp knife, cut the steak into thin slices. The slices need to be thin, so they are easy to bite into once the tortilla is rolled up.

18 )
Take a tortilla and spread some tomato ketchup on top, then add some lettuce, marinated purple onion, shredded cheese, and of course, steak slices. Roll it up and take a big bite! Yeah!
