Cinco De Mayo & Mother’s Day Meal All in One

The first week of May in our house is a busy one. Not only is it Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day, it is also my husband’s birthday. So in honor of all three of those events, I am sharing the most delish take on a Taco. It is my husband’s most requested meal. If your tasters are anything like mine, you’ll want to make double the sauce.
Thai Steak Tacos
Serves 6
1 lb of flank steak, trimmed
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Cooking spray
1 cup cubed peeled cucumber
1/4 cup of cherry tomato halved
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 Tbs chopped fresh mint
1 Tbs chopped fresh basil (Although I have used dried basil in a pinch)
1 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbs  brown sugar
3 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
6 10″ flour tortillas
  1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper. Place steak on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
  3. Let the meat rest 5 minutes.
  4. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
  5. Combine slice steak, cucumber and the next 5 ingredients (through cilantro) in a large bowl.
  6. Combine sugar, soy sauce, lime juice, and crushed red pepper. Drizzle over steak mixture, toss well to coat.
  7. Warm tortillas according to package directions.
  8. Spoon steak mixture into tortilla, roll up and enjoy!
I usually serve along a fresh fruit salad. Hope all of you Moms are spoiled this weekend by your loved ones. Happy Mother’s Day!
