DIRECTIONS

  • Cut steak into 6 equal portions. Pound portions until they are as thin as possible and coat with lime juice.
  • Sprinkle steaks evenly with garlic and press in pequin or crushed red pepper flakes. (Pequin is intensely hot: 2 teaspoons will be fiery, 1 teaspoon will get your attention, 1/2 a teaspoon will still have a kick).
  • Stack steaks and let stand for about 30 minutes at room temperature. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
  • Place a large cast iron skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke.
  • While skillet is heating, stack the tortillas and wrap in foil, and place in the oven along with 4 to 6 dinner plates.
  • Add oil and quickly sear the meat on both sides. Add brandy to the hot skillet. Flame the meat by touching the brandy with a lighted match and let the flames burn down. (If the flames get too high you can cover the pan with the lid.)You can do this table-side if you are careful!
  • Place all the items on the table along with the steak. Guests can pick which items to add to their tortillas. Simply fill, roll and eat.
