A recipe that was in my TOH magazine (by Lisa Huff) that I saved to try, but haven't yet. It sounds like a great thing to make for snacking while football is on or for a great lunch/dinner. I would saute the onions and peppers in a small bit of butter or oil while the steak is marinading, til softened. You can use whatever cheese makes you happy and I put the pineapple as optional, as I wouldn't use it.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients; set aside 3 tablespoons for filling. Pour remaining mixture into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the steak; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Drain steak and discard marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 8-11 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  3. Remove steak from the grill and cool slightly; cut into bite-size pieces. In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, red onion, green pepper and beef.
  4. Sprinkle half of the cheese over three tortillas. Using a slotted spoon, top with beef mixture. Drizzle with reserved soy mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; top with remaining tortillas.
  5. Grill over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted. Cut each into six wedges; serve immediately.
