Ingredients

  • sirloin steak 1 (about 200g), fat trimmed
  • ground cumin 1 tsp
  • smoked paprika a large pinch
  • lime 1, juiced
  • red pepper 1 small, sliced into strips
  • yellow pepper 1 small, sliced into strips
  • onion 1, halved and thinly sliced
  • olive oil 2 tsp
  • baby plum tomatoes 10, halved
  • coriander ½ a small bunch, roughly chopped
  • small corn tortillas 4, warmed

CORIANDER YOGURT SAUCE

  • low-fat natural yogurt 100ml
  • garlic ½ clove, crushed
  • green chilli 1, chopped
  • coriander ½ a small bunch, roughly chopped

Method

  • Step 1

    Put the steak in a plastic food bag then bash a few times with a rolling pin to flatten it a little. Open the bag and sprinkle over the cumin, paprika and lime juice, and season well. Smoosh everything together and leave to marinate while you make the other fillings.

  • Step 2

    Whizz together the yogurt, garlic, chilli and coriander in a small blender until just smooth.

  • Step 3

    Put the peppers, onion and olive oil in a bowl, and toss with seasoning. Heat a non-stick frying pan until hot then tip in the pepper mix and fry until softened and golden at the edges.

  • Step 4

    Heat a griddle to really hot then sear the steak for 2 minutes on each side. Put on a plate to rest for 5 minutes, then slice.

  • Step 5

    Add the tomatoes to the pepper pan and give it another blast of heat until the tomatoes soften. Toss in the steak and coriander. Serve in the tortillas with a spoonful of the sauce.
