Everyone loves steak and potatoes and everyone loves tacos! Here is a winning combo of two favorites. This recipe is also a great use for leftover baked potatoes; just slice the baked potatoes and steak, then add to the sautéed onions and poblano chilies and cook until reheated.

Photography By: Julia Vandenoever.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 poblano chilies, stemmed, seeded, sliced
  • 12 ounces yellow potatoes, quartered lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 (12-ounce) flank steak
  • Garlic powder
  • Chili powder
  • 12 corn tortillas (6-inch)
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Purchased Pico de Gallo Salsa and/or Hot Sauce


  1. Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in heavy large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and chilies and sauté until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer onion mixture to bowl (do not wash skillet).
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and sauté until golden brown and tender, about 12 minutes.
  3. Return onion mixture to skillet with potatoes and keep warm.
  4. Meanwhile, sprinkle both sides of steak generously with garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. Heat remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook until browned on both sides, turning once, about 8 minutes total for medium-rare. Transfer steak to cutting board; let rest 5 minutes.
  5. While steak rests, heat tortillas on griddle or over gas flame until warm, turning frequently with tongs.
  6. Thinly slice steak. Top tortillas with steak and potato mixture; sprinkle with cilantro. Serve passing pico de gallo and/or hot sauce separately.
