How to make it

  • In a skillet over med heat, roast mustard, cumino, coriander and fennel seeds. apprx 4-5min, stirring constantly.

  • onion powder, oregano, black pepper, salt and paprika. mix well with other ingredients in the skillet.

  • add pureed ingredients to the skillet and mix well.
  • marinate steak for 1 hr.
  • remove steak from the marinade. set aside and fire up the grill.
  • pour remaining marinade back into the skillet and bring to a full boil. you can now use this as a mopping sauce for the steak as it grills.
  • grill on high heat for a couple of minutes each side. use mopping sauce as desired.
  • let the steak rest for 10 min before slicing in strips across the grain.
  • serve with grilled onions, bell peppers and pico de gallo on flour tortillas.
  • i like to set aside a few Tbsp of the marinade to use on the onions and bell peppers. just saute until soft using extra olive oil as needed.

    Zapata is one of the most revered national heroes of Mexico: to many Mexicans, specifically the peasant and indigenous citizens, Zapata was a practical revolutionary who sought the implementation of liberties and agrarian rights. He was a realist with the goal of achieving political and economic emancipation of the peasants in southern Mexico, and leading them out of severe poverty. He was a leading figure in the Mexican Revolution 1910-1920

    Oops, chose Zapata because it is a border town on Falcon lake. the mexican food there is a bit different than the standard tex-mex we have in austin.
