Tortilla

homemade tortillas

Flour tortillas are used in this steak burrito recipe because they give the dish a soft yet chewy texture. You can easily use store-bought flour tortillas or make your own homemade ones. Making your own homemade flour tortillas is a great way to add a unique flavor and freshness to the burritos. The recipe for making homemade flour tortillas is provided below, but you can also take some shortcuts and buy pre-made ones from the grocery store if desired. No matter what type of tortilla you choose, it will be sure to provide an amazing base for these delicious steak burritos! Recipe for homemade tortillas.

Rice

Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro lime rice is the perfect choice for steak burritos because its zesty and refreshing flavor complements the richness of the steak.  Adding cilantro lime rice to these burritos adds an extra layer of texture and depth as well, which is sure to be appreciated by everyone who tries them. Plus, making this type of rice at home is incredibly easy (the recipe is provided below) so it won’t take long to prepare it before adding it to your burrito. Not only does cilantro lime rice make these steak burritos even tastier, but it also adds vibrant colors that make the dish look even more appetizing. Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe

Steak

Sirloin steak

This steak burrito recipe uses top sirloin steak, which is a lean cut of beef that has an amazing flavor and is usually budget-friendly. It’s the perfect choice for this dish because it cooks quickly and easily while still providing plenty of flavor. Additionally, because top sirloin is so lean it won’t make your burritos greasy or heavy. Other types of steak can also be used in this recipe such as flank steak, skirt steak, or even ribeye if desired. However, these cuts may take longer to cook than top sirloin and could result in a different texture and taste than what is expected from this delicious dish. 

Vegetables

For this steak burrito recipe a combination of white onion, red bell peppers, and green bell peppers add an amazing flavor to the dish. These vegetables provide a great balance of sweetness and crunchiness while also adding texture and color contrast to the burritos. Additionally, these vegetables are easy to prepare ahead of time if desired which can save you time in the kitchen. Plus, they are all very affordable ingredients so this recipe won’t break your budget! If you’re looking for some other vegetable options for your steak burritos feel free to experiment with different colors or types such as jalapenos, poblanos or mushrooms. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to making delicious steak burritos at home!

Toppings

Cotija cheese, sour cream, and guacamole are all essential toppings for steak burritos. Cotija cheese is a salty and crumbly cheese that adds a great texture to the burrito. It also has a bit of tanginess which helps to offset the richness of the steak. Sour cream is a classic topping that not only adds flavor but also has a rich creaminess. Lastly, guacamole brings out the bright colors in this recipe while its creamy texture adds depth to each bite. Additionally, other popular toppings such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, or salsa can be used to add more freshness and crunchy texture to your steak burritos. For an extra kick of flavor, you could also add some hot sauce or pickled jalapenos on top!

FAQ

What type of steak is best for this recipe?

Sirloin Steak is a lean and budget friendly which makes it a great choice but another great option is flank steak.
