TK Table Talk:

If the POTUS was coming to your home for dinner, what would you serve?

What To Do:

Mojo Tacos - Step 1

1. Sauté Onions: In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, onions and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until onions just become limp. Remove from heat and add to a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.

2. Cook Steak: Lightly coat a grill pan with oil and place over high heat. In a small mixing bowl, stir together ½ of the cumin, ½ of the garlic, ½ the oregano, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Rub mixture over both sides of steak. Add steak to the hot grill pan and cook 4 minutes per side, turning once. Remove to plate and allow to rest.

3. While Steak is Cooking, Make Mojo: Roughly chop the cilantro and add 2/3 of it (reserve the rest for a garnish) to the mixing bowl with the onions. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, remaining cumin, crushed red pepper, oregano, remaining garlic, juice from lime, honey and ¼ teaspoon salt. Stir together.

4. Char Tortillas: Heat tortillas by placing directly over a gas burner or under a broiler until blackened in places on both sides. PLEASE don’t skip this step, you’ll be missing out on big flavor.

5. Chop Steak: Thinly slice steak and chop into small pieces. Add the chopped steak and all its juices to the Mojo Sauce. Toss to coat.

To Serve: Divide steak mixture between charred tortillas and garnish with remaining cilantro.

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos. #tklife
