Now Let's get this meal ready.
What Do I Need?
- A heavy bottomed or cast iron pan and one flat pan for flatbreads or roti
- A drop or 2 of oil (or beef tallow is even better)
- Salt, Pepper
Simple, fresh and delicious, here's how to prepare your guac:
Step 1: Remove the skin and stone for your avocado, chop into chunks and grind it up in a pestle and mortar
Step 2: Dice your onion and tomato into small pieces, add them to the avocado
Step 3: Chop your coriander, stem included, and add to your mixture
Step 4: Roll your lime so that you get more juice from it, slice in half, and then squeeze into your guac. Add a pinch of salt, and your carne asada seasoning
Optional: Your dried ancho chilli can be added to the guacamole to give it some extra oomph. Grind it with the avocado.
Cook your Wagyu Bavette Steak
We're going for a medium-rare finish on the steak which will take approx 10 minutes. If you prefer medium to medium well, add an additional minute cooking time. You'll need your heavy bottomed pan for this.
Step 1: Remove the wagyu steak from it's packaging. If it was frozen, defrost in the fridge first overnight
Step 2: Season liberally with the Carne Asada seasoning
Step 3: Bring the pan up to a very high heat (try sprinkling a few drops of water, they should bounce off the pan and sizzle). Add a couple of drops of oil. Once the oil starts to smoke, reduce the heat by a notch or two. You're good to get cooking
Step 4: Get your timer ready! Place the steak into the pan
Step 5: After 5 minutes - flip the steak, you should have a gorgeous crust. Let it cook for another 4-5mins. If you want it cooked beyond medium rare, flip the burger after the 4mins and continue cooking for another minute
Final Step: Remove the steak from the pan and let it rest! It's tempting to dive straight in but it is paramount you let the steak rest for 10 minutes, either on a board or warm plate.This will ensure that the juices get re-absorbed leaving you with a perfectly tender steak to enjoy. While your steak is resting - get your tortillas toasted.
Toast your tortilla
You'll need your flat-bread/roti pan for this step.
- Corn tortillas are the base of every taco, get your pan at a medium low heat with oil or beef tallow. You need to hydrate your tortillas with the fat, and toasted. This should take 1min per tortilla per side, but every pan and stove is different so please use your own judgement as well.
- As you cook your tortillas you will need to keep adding more oil/tallow, do not deep or shallow fry!
- Wrap the tortillas in a cloth and put them aside
Dress those Tacos
The trick here is to not overload them - get a good tablespoon of guacamole onto your tortilla, with a slice or two of steak and dig in! Feel free to mix it up, add some crispy onions, maybe some jalapeños or a bit of sour cream. Your taco, your toppings.
