Steak Tacos with Mango Salsa

For our birthdays this year, my hubby’s grandparents sent us some Omaha Steaks.  We’ve received these tasty steaks before and absolutely love them!  Since my hubby and I both love Mexican food, we decided to grill our filet mignons and make steak tacos with them.  I had a mango that was starting to go soft as well, so I decided to make fresh mango salsa.  This mango salsa is especially delicious for any grilled meats including fish and pork.  This meal was incredible and so easy to prepare – it was the perfect way to end a great weekend!

Do you have a favorite salsa that you like to make?  Do share!



Ingredients:

  • 4 filet mignons
  • sea salt and pepper to season
  • 1 green pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 jalapeno, finely diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • sea salt and pepper to season
  • Whole wheat tortillas
  • Monterrey Jack cheese for sprinkling

Directions:

  1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Season both sides of filet mignons with salt and pepper and place on top of hot grill pan.  Cook steaks on each side for 4 minutes or until desired doneness and set aside.
  3. Add pepper and onions to grill pan and allow to grill until soft, about 5 minutes.
  4. In a small bow, mix mango, red onion, jalapeno and cilantro.  Add lime juice and mix to combine.  Season with cumin, sea salt, and pepper.
  5. After allowing cooked steaks to sit, slice into thin pieces.
  6. Assemble tortillas with steak, onions, and peppers and top with mango salsa and shredded cheese.
