Sirloin Orange Tacos

Sirloin Orange Tacos

Sirloin Orange Tacos. Introduce some fragrant orange flavours to your succulent steak tacos. 

Serves 4

ground pepper and salt, to taste

3 oranges, zest

2 spring onions (scallions), chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

800g (1lb 10oz) sirloin steak

4 corn tortillas


To serve

1/2 white onion, chopped

50 g (2 oz) coriander (cilantro), chopped

add Salsa Verde or Salsa Roja


In a bowl mix together the pepper, salt, orange zest, spring onions and olive oil. Mix thoroughly and set

aside for 30 minutes.

On a hot grill, roast the sirloin until it is cooked to your liking.

Cook the sirloin on a hot grill or in a frypan. Brown on both sides and cook to your preference but we

recommend medium rare.

Remove the sirloin from the grill, pour over with orange zest mix and rest for 10 minutes.

Cut the sirloin into thick strips and serve over hot tortillas with onions, coriander and your favourite sauce.

Heat tortillas in the oven for 1–2 minutes. Alternatively, heat a frypan and add the tortillas, one at a time. Cook for 1–2 minutes each side. Keep warm while you heat the rest of the tortillas.

Serve the steak on the tortillas with selected sauce/s.
