Mediterranean Tacos with Honey & Spice Tahini

 Delicious gluten-free and grain-free Paleo Steak Tacos full of Mediterranean flavors with a kick-ass exotic sauce. Grab yourself a delicious flank steak from a local farmer or your nearest market. You’ll thank me later– the flank steak really brings all of the flavors together, and I don’t think it would be nearly the same with some ground beef or pulled pork.

Ingredients

  • 3 batches Stupid Easy Paleo's tortilla
  • 1 pound grass-fed flank steak
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup dried apricot diced
  • 1/2 cup raisins diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce/paste

Instructions

  • Head to Stupid Easy Paleo's website to make the tortillas first. After you make those, set them aside on a plate.
  • Set the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Marinate the flank steak in the lime juice, sea salt and black pepper. Make sure you give it a nice rub. Then, place it on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack. If you have a broiler pan, use that.
  • Cook on 4-5 minutes per side, until you cut through and it's a perfect medium rare.
  • Pull it out of the oven, cover it with some aluminum foil and let it rest for about 10 minutes before slicing into it. After 10 minutes, cut the flank steak into little cubes.
  • Heat up a large skillet on medium heat. Then, add in your ghee.
  • Throw in the yellow onions and cook for 4-5 minutes until they are translucent. Next, add in the apricot, raisins, nutmeg and cinnamon. Let this cook for another couple of minutes until everything has gotten soft to the touch.
  • Add in the cubed flank steak and lower the heat as low as possible. Just toss everything to combine and remove from heat.
  • Prepare the sauce, by mixing all of the ingredients in a small tupperware container (preferably one that is spill proof, you'll really want to shake this thing!) The sauce should thicken up.
  • Fill the tortillas with the taco filling and top off with the sauce, some goat cheese, and some fresh herbs.

Notes

Be careful with the sauce. It may have a bit of a kick to it.
