Dinner Lunch

Quick Steak Tacos

“All you need is love and tacos.”

I made these last week and they tasted amazing! They were super quick, too. I made guacamole to go with, and it was a great dinner.

INGREDIENTS: (serves 2 generously – easy to modify for # of people)

  • 1 pound thin steak (you’ll cut it into slices, so aim for skirt steak or just a thin strip)
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • Sea salt/pepper
  • 6 corn tortillas (or more, your call!)
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 lime
  • Guac, pico de Gallo, maybe some dairy free cheese… whatever else you like!


  1. Cut the steak into strips. Then, throw it into a bowl with the chili powder, oregano, sugar, pinch of salt and some pepper. Mix it all together and let it sit while the stove heats up.
  2. Heat a frying pan/skillet to high heat and add the oil. Once the oil is hot, put the steak strips on with the ingredients in the bowl. They should cook for ~3 min on each side. (Keep stirring)
  3. Warm the tortillas in the microwave for a minute, and set up the rest of the ingredients buffet-style. The rest is up to you! I liked my tacos with a scoop of guacamole, a few chopped onions, a few steak strips, and some lime juice squeezed on top. Enjoy!

About The Dairy QueenThe Dairy Queen

Just a New England gal stuck in rural Virginia. Can be found avoiding dairy at all costs. Talents include speed reading ingredient labels and enjoying ice cream via smell. If I could major in Spotify playlist construction and dairy free cooking, I would.

I have been blessed with a dairy allergy and have not touched a cheesy piece of pizza in years. Thus, here we are. I hope you find these recipes simple, inexpensive, and delicious. I have years of experience avoiding dairy, so hopefully my adventures can help you out.
