Marinated Steak Tacos

This week, my boyfriend, Stephen, and I went to Las Vegas. We left really early Monday morning and got back really late last night. We had such a great time, and we stayed in this amazing new hotel, Vdara. We did not want to come back to reality in Dallas yesterday, and it certainly didn't help that we had to sit on the plane in Vegas for over 2 and a half hours before taking off.

Marinated Steak Tacos

1 lb. sirloin steak
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
2 t. red wine vinegar
1 t. extra virgin olive oil
2 t. chili powder
1 t. ground red pepper
1 t. cumin
2 t. onion powder
1 t. garlic powder
Salt and pepper
Corn tortillas
Tomato slices
Queso fresco

In a large skillet, caramelize onions on medium heat, stirring frequently, for about 30 minutes. Whisk together, vinegar, oil, chili powder, ground red pepper, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Marinate steak for 1 hour. Wrap tortillas in foil. Warm them in a 200 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until warm and pliable. In skillet over medium high heat, sear steak for 4-5 minutes per side. Let steak rest for 10 minutes, then slice thinly. Top steak with onions, tomato and queso fresco. Serve with black beans and brown rice.
