Sirloin Tip Tacos (serves 4, 2 tacos per person)

  • 2 pounds Sirloin Tip steak
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • kosher salt 
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • Corn Taco Tortillas
  • Your Favorite Taco Toppings


  1. In a mortar and pestle (if you don't have this appliance then a food processor is perfect), mash together the garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, salt, and pepper to make a paste. Put the paste in a glass jar or plastic container. Add the lime juice, orange juice, vinegar, and oil. Shake it really well to combine. 
  2. Lay the sirloin tip steak in a large baking dish and pour the marinade over it. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-8 hours.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill. Brush the grates with a little oil to prevent the meat from sticking. Pull the steak out of the marinade and season the steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for 7 to 10 minutes per side, turning once, until medium-rare.  Remove the steak to cutting board and let it rest for 5 minutes to allow the juices to settle. Thinly slice the steak across the grain on a diagonal. 
  4. Warm the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side on the grill, until toasty. 
  5. To make the tacos, stack up 2 of the warm tortillas, lay about 4 ounces of beef down on the center, and sprinkle with your favorite taco toppings.
