How to make it

  • Corn Tortillas
  • 1.Combine masa harina with water. Mix well until you get a smooth dough. Add water in tablespoon increments if necessary.
  • 2.Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Shape each part into a ball.
  • 3.Use a tortilla press to make tortillas. I find it works best to press the tortillas between two sheets of parchment paper (most instructions seem to recommend plastic foil but I find that too flimsy).
  • 4.Carefully peel each tortilla off the parchment paper.
  • 5.Place on ungreased hot cast iron griddle (or in a cast iron pan).
  • 6.Cook ca. 30s from one side, flip over, cook for 60s, flip back and cook for another 30s.
  • 7.Keep tortillas warm (in oven set to low temperature or wrapped in a clean kitchen towel)
  • 8.Repeat until all tortillas have been made
  • Steak, Vegetables and Assembling the Tortillas
  • 1.Sprinkle steak with freshly ground pepper and cumin.
  • 2.Place heavy fry pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Cook steak until done, ca. 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove steak from pan and set aside.
  • 3.Place heave saute pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and brown sugar. Cook until the sugar starts to darken.
  • 4.Add onion, cook until onion starts to brown. Add poblano and bell peppers, chopped tomato and ground cumin. Cook until the peppers start to soften, stir frequently.
  • 5.Add salt and white wine. Cook until liquid has mostly evaporated. Adjust seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • 6.Stir in chopped cilantro.
  • 7.Cut steak into thin slices. For all six tortillas, place steak and vegetable mix on one half of a tortilla. Fold over. Garnish with a few cilantro leaves. Serve.
  • I find freshly prepared corn tortillas to be a real treat. They are most easily shaped with a tortilla press. I have an 8in (ca. 20cm) press which is available from many sources for less than $20.
  • Yields 6 tortillas
