Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

We love a Cabernet or Bordeaux –they both go great with grilled steak and cool tacos.

Lager. Period. Red or amber for these tacos.

TK Table Talk:

If you could time travel, where and when would you go first? Why?

What To Do:

1. Prep Jalapeno and Lime: Finely mince jalapeno. Zest half of the lime. Cut lime in half.

2. Make Steak Rub: In a small bowl, stir together 1 teaspoon oil, half of the brown sugar, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper and ½ teaspoon of the the minced jalapeno. Rub mixture over steak.

3. Heat a lightly oiled grill pan to high.

4. Cook Steak: Place steak on hot grill and grill turning once, until cooked through (about 3-4 minutes per side). Remove to a plate to rest while making the slaw. Slice against the grain when ready to serve.

5. Mix Slaw: In a medium bowl, toss together cabbage, fennel root, remaining brown sugar, sour cream, lime zest, juice from half the lime, as much of the remaining jalapenos as you can handle, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

6. Char Tortillas: Heat tortillas by placing directly over a gas burner, grill 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.

To Serve: Top each tortilla with sliced steak and fennel slaw. Squeeze with remaining lime.
