Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 35 mins
To prepare the marinade; mix all the ingredients together (except the peppers, onions and tortillas).
Transfer half the marinade into a double-lined plastic food bag. Add the beef, seal and marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or if time allows overnight. Toss the vegetables in the remaining marinade, transfer to a second plastic food bag, seal and chill until required.
To prepare the pico de gallo; in a bowl mix all the ingredients together, cover and set aside.
Heat a non-stick griddle pan until hot. Cook the steak for 4-5 minutes on each side (for medium). Transfer to a large plate, cover with foil and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes. Warm the tortillas.
Remove the vegetables from the marinade and cook in batches in the griddle pan for 5-6 minutes until the vegetables start to lightly char. Transfer to a large plate with any juices from the pan.
Slice the steak across the grain and serve with the peppers, tortillas, garnishes and the pico de gallo.
