Each month I receive Easy Food- A brilliant Irish food magazine that's packed with a vast variety of lovely recipes. I keep my back dated issues together on a shelf and I regularly refer to them.
To buy from a newsagent this magazine is fantastic value at 3 euros, however I get the magazine renewed through my Tesco vouchers and it only costs 1 euro per issue- Simply unbelievable value as it is also delivered to my door for this price.
This month I am testing a recipe for the Easy Food Magazine and these Steak Tacos is that recipe. I enjoy this sort of dining as one can have bowls of salad, grated cheese, guacamole etc all ready for serving in the fridge, then when guests arrive the meat can quickly be fried. I would advice to have the tortillas hot and possibly sprinkle each with a little cheese before taking off the pan. The steak that I use for these would be the end pieces of fillet steak, as my butcher charges the same price for these as sirloin steak and it is so deliciously tender the fillet is perfect for quick frying. The meat also needs to be sizzling hot when serving because once you add the salads etc the wrap cools down considerably. The taco can be served with chips, some boiled rice or a little salad.
