Steak Tacos

This is a family favorite.  The original recipe came from Bon Appetit but has evolved over the years to suit our taste.  It is a great weeknight meal because it doesn’t require any marinading time and once you have the steak sliced it cooks fairly quickly.  I serve these tacos with all the usual things like shredded cheese, sour cream, lettuce and whatever else suits my mood, but, to tell you the truth, they are so nicely seasoned you easily could serve them without all that stuff.  In fact, when my son was still living at home, I had to watch the pan closely or he would eat half of it before it got to the table! ( I always let him have a few bites before I “notice” so he could think he was mister sneaky! ).
