Mexican Steak

With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, we asked Emma what she likes to cook to celebrate. Why steak and tequila of course! She let us in on her recipe below. It’s sure to create a muy bien esta!


Serves 2

  • 1/2 cup white onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 pieces of steak, or 1 lb
  • dried oregano
  • salt & pepper
  • dried red pepper


Sauté white onion and cilantro in Worcestershire sauce with 1 oz of water on low heat for several minutes.

Add steak and cook for about 3 minutes each side (depending on the thickness of steak).

As you’re cooking, season both sides of the steak with the cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, and red pepper to taste.

Once your steak is done, add any Mexican side dish you like— such as sliced avocado, rice, or grilled vegetables. Pour some tequila and salud!
