Steak Tacos

We often make tacos when we have leftover meat.  We just season, reheat and build the tacos.  Unless you have a good source for corn tortillas, it’s definitely worthwhile to make your own.

Flatiron Steak with Herb Butter

Flatiron Steak with Melted Herb Butter

Flatiron Steak with Melted Herb Butter

Adapted from Bouchon by Thomas Keller

I’ve made a number of dishes from Thomas Keller’s Bouchon cookbook.  So far this is one of the most simple I’ve made.  I’ve halved the recipe here, but you can easily double it.  If doubling, use 2 skillets and cook with them simultaneously.  Flatiron steaks are called for, which sometimes can be difficult to find.  Call your butcher ahead of time or use a hanger steak or top sirloin steak.  The compound herb butter (recipe at the bottom) can be made a couple days ahead.  Make sure the butter is at room temperature before adding in the herbs and lemon juice.
