Marinated Steak Tacos with Avocado

I try to incorporate ingredients outside of my comfort zone, not to punish my palate, but to expand my repertoire. I hope that be doing this I will be able to shed new light on an ingredient and shed new light on a dish. One ingredient my girlfriend has been pushing me to use is avocados. The avocado to me is an interesting fruit. Dry, thick skinned, and more buttery than sweet. So when I finally decided to agree to her request I figured I could incorporate it with a tasty steak. Lo and behold the combination of lime, cayenne and the buttery texture of the avocados made a surprisingly pleasant effect on the senses. So upon dining on this delectable twist on a traditional steak taco, I finally had to admit that she was right: Avocados can be delicious.

Ingredients:

Steak Marinade (Serves 2)

½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive oil

1 Lime, Juiced

2 Tbsp Worcestershire

½ Tbsp Liquid Smoke

2 tsp Cayenne Pepper, Ground

3 Garlic Cloves, Minced

1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard

½ Small Red Onion

 

1lb Flat Iron Steak or Skirt steak cut in ¼ inch thick slices

8 Flour Tortilla Shells, 5-6 inches

3 Ripe Avocados

 

Basil Lime Vinaigrette

¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 Limes, Juiced

1 tsp Kosher Salt

1 tsp Fresh Crushed Black Pepper

2 tsp White Sugar

½ oz Fresh Basil Leaves, minced

2 Garlic Cloves, Minced

 

In a small bowl add all of the ingredients starting with the olive oil, Worcestershire, and Liquid Smoke. I added the liquid smoke because I did not a wood fired grill for that nice smoky flavoring you gain. Just a ½ Tbsp of flavoring ads a nice wood smoked hint to your dish. After all the ingredients for the marinade are mixed, place in a 9x9 baking pan with the cut steak. Allow it to marinade in the refrigerator for 3-8 hours. If you are trying to do it quickly, allow it to marinade for at least 45 minutes to gain some of the flavor you need. While the steak is marinating, you may begin the vinaigrette.

 In a medium bowl, or with a stand mixer, whisk the olive oil with the lime juice until thoroughly incorporated. While whisking, add the salt, black pepper, sugar, basil leaves and garlic. Whisk the ingredients at a high speed until fully incorporated.

Now it’s time to eat! Over medium heat in a non-stick skillet, grill the steak to your desired temperature. Remember that the steaks are marinated so it will be difficult to visually see the difference. While the steaks are cooking, heat your tortilla shells, either in the oven or on a skillet. Once the steak is cooked, place on your tortillas, lay the avocados on top and drizzle with the lime vinaigrette.
