Steak Enchiladas by Willy

About once a week or so Willy likes to cook a flat iron steak. It is really a cheaper cut of steak but if you can get one with a little fat (excuse Willy) I mean marbling then it cooks up real nice. It has a thin end that can easily be cooked to medium to well and leave the other end cooked like it should be - medium rare. Many times Willy has some of this left over and is always looking for ways to use the steak. Well here is another. Try it out! 10-4 Willy

1 lb. steak
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 chili peppers, chopped
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 tomato, chopped
1 doz. corn tortillas
American or mozzarella cheese, optional (try the Mexican Blend)

Cut steak into thin strips. Cook in skillet with small amount oil until done. Add onion, garlic and peppers, cumin, tomato, and black pepper. Add a little water and cook for 15 minutes. Fry tortillas in a little cooking oil. Place steak mixture on tortillas and roll up. Add cheese if you wish.

Salt and pepper
1/3 cup coarsely chopped honey roasted peanuts
Green onion flower and chopped honey roasted peanuts (optional)

1 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
