Very lightly salt and pepper the steak, mix well, and let stand fifteen minutes.

Onion:

Peel and rough chop the onion.

Mix:

Place steak, sesame seed, and onion into the marinade and mix well. Add a small amount of water if needed to thin the marinade enough to mix.

Let stand 2 hours.

Cook

Place meat mixture into a heated pan over medium high heat.

Stir fry for three to four minutes until meat is browned.

Remove pan from heat and transfer meat to a bowl or platter.

Heat tortilla and place equal amounts of meat on each.

Top with cheese and any optional ingredients.

Dress with sriracha or chipotle sauce and serve.

Tip:

Partially freezing the beef makes it much easier to slice.
