1 flank steak

Salsa Roja
  • 400g cherry tomatoes
  • 1-2 Serrano chili pepper(s)
  • 1 red onion
  • 20g fresh cilantro (you can use more, according to taste)
  • 2 tablespoonfuls lime juice
  • Salt
Pickled Red Onion
  • 1 red onion
  • 100ml white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoonful coarse salt
  • 3 tablespoonfuls sugar
Corn Tortilla
  • 230g nixtamalized corn flour
  • 400ml tepid water


Step 1. Salsa Roja

  1. Preheat the grill and put the tomatoes and Serrano chili peppers into an oven dish.
  2. Roast them until they turn black in places, for about 5 minutes. Turn over the tomatillos. Continue to roast them for about 4 minutes. Tip the onion, cilantro, garlic, salt and 2 tablespoonfuls of lime juice into a blender or food processor.
  3. Add the roast tomatoes and chili peppers to the food processor, then mix until a smooth texture is obtained, taking care to scrape the sides from time to time.
  4. Correct the seasoning with salt and lime juice.

Step 2. Pickled Red Onion

  1. Peel and thinly slice the red onion. Put the salt, sugar and vinegar into a saucepan and bring to the boil, then turn off the heat.
  2. Next put the onions into a 250ml-jar and add the tepid vinegar, then wait 24h before using them.

Step 3. Corn Tortilla

  1. Mix the corn flour and water in a bowl. Knead until a homogeneous ball is obtained.
  2. Cover with a damp cloth. Preheat a hotplate to medium heat.
  3. Using a tortilla press or a dish, place a dough ball approximately 4cm in diameter between the two plastic disks and press on them to form a round tortilla approximately 15cm in size.
  4. Put the tortilla onto the hotplate and cook for 45 sec. The edge should start to dry slightly.
  5. Turn it over and continue to cook for 1 min until small brown marks form. Turn it over again and leave to cook for another 15 sec.

Step 4. Plating-Up

Add salt and pepper to the flank steak, and cook it in a hot, oiled frying pan for 2 min on each side. Slice it and put a few slices on the tortillas, then top with salsa and add a few pickled onions and your choice of shoots.
