Ingredient Substitution Guide


First, cut the steak into small cubes, add salt and pepper.

Then, take a pre-heated pan and pour 10 ml vegetable oil into it to saute the meat, until cooked.

In the meantime, peel the avocado and cut it into small cubes.

For the costra or cheese crust, put the shredded cheese on a pre-heated and non-stick pan, and place the soft corn tortilla on top. Once the cheese crust has hardened, flip it over, remove it from the pan, and place it on a plate (cheese crust facing down). Add the pan-fried ribeye on top, onion, coriander, and drizzle with a few drops of lime juice, and avocado and enjoy!

Remember to eat your taco the Mexican way - no cutlery, fold the taco and take a bite.
