Cooking Directions
  1. Combine the olive oil, chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, lime juice and salt + pepper in a gallon sized zip lock bag. Add the steak and rub the marinade into the steak, making sure the steak has been well covered all over. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour to overnight (the longer you marinate the steak, the more flavor intensifies).
  2. Combine all ingredients for the chimichurri in a bowl and toss to combine well. Season with salt, taste and adjust as needed. Cover and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  3. For the cucumber salsa, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and toss to combine. Cover and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  4. When ready to cook the steak, heat a large cast iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil. When hot, add the peppers and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir-fry the peppers for 3-4 minutes. Remove the peppers from the pan. Return the pan to medium-high heat. Sear the steak for 3-4 minutes and then flip and continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes or until the steak reaches your desired doneness. Cooking times will vary depending on the size and thickness of your steak. Remove from the heat and allow to rest 5-10 minutes, then slice against the grain.
  5. To serve, divide the steak and peppers among warm tortillas and drizzle with chimichurri. Top with salsa and cheese.
