- Prepare a cast iron skillet over medium heat with 3 tbsp of olive oil or your choice of cooking fat. When the oil comes up to temperature, swirl it to evenly coat the pan, then add the steak.
- Season the top side of the steak while it is cooking. Sear the first side for 4 minutes.
- Flip the steak, season the other side, and place a lid loosely over the top so that it retains some heat but does not steam the steak.
- While the steak is cooking, prepare the taco toppings. (slice, dice, all that jazz)
- After the steak has cooked for 8 minutes, allow it to rest 2 more minutes in the pan with the heat completely off.
- Slice the steak and assemble your tacos. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
