Chimichurri Steak Tacos with Creamy Chipotle Slaw (Whole30 Modification Too!)

Chimichurri Steak Tacos with Creamy Chipotle Slaw

These tacos are simplicity at it's finest, however, they're 10000% delicious. Taco Tuesday is a day we'll celebrate anytime. Especially living in Austin, Texas, the unofficial taco capital of the US. 

These tacos get a serious flavor punch from a little magical sauce called Chimichurri. Chimi-whatee? Say this: chimmy-churry. Simplicity. Just olive oil, fresh parsley, garlic, chilies, vinegar, and salt. Boom. You get all of that freshness in each little drizzle of this sauce. Our Chimichurri of choice is Elvio's Argentinian Chimichurri. 

Chimichurri is made for protein. Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, venison, eggs, beans, you name it. Everything goes well with this versatile condiment. Does whatever you're cooking taste better with garlic and parsley? Then drizzle this stuff on! Plus, it's Whole30 compliant, and can be found in our Whole 30 Collection with our favorite approved and friendly condiments. 

So grab a good slice of grass fed beef, some yummy sauce, and let's go!

Here's how to make them

Serves 2

You'll need:

4-6 tortillas (make a batch of Otto's Cassava Flour tortillas using the recipe on the back of the bag) *omit if Whole30

Argentinian Chimichurri Sauce by Elvio's  

 1/2 - 1 lb beef (we used a fajita steak cut) 

2 cups cabbage or slaw mix

1-2 Tbsp Chipotle Lime Mayo by Primal Kitchen Foods

1 Tbsp ghee 

1 tsp vinegar of choice

salt and pepper to taste

Lettuce cups *if Whole30ing 

Start by mixing vinegar and mayo to create a thick but somewhat pour-able sauce. 

Pour over cabbage/slaw mix in a small bowl and coat the mixture with the sauce. Set aside.

Prepare the tortillas according to the recipe and set aside.

Slice steak into thin strips and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In a hot skillet, head ghee until fluid, and hot, then add steak. Bring heat up, cooking the steak quickly. Cook steak to desired temperature/color then remove and add to a large bowl. 

Drizzle a teaspoon of Chimichurri over the steak and toss with tongs to coat. Continue to add sauce until desired amount on the steak is achieved. 

Add steak to the tacos, top with slaw mixture, and dig in! If you're on a Whole30, use lettuce cups in place or tortillas.
