Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound flap meat, top sirloin or rib eye steak
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 12-inch size flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar

For the Pico de Gallo

  • 1/2 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 tablespoons onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, stemmed and chopped
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Season beef with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a wide heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat, add oil and swirl to cover the bottom of the pan. Heat until hot. 
  • Add flap steak in a single layer and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes or until medium done. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  • In a bowl, combine eggs and milk. Whisk until well-blended with no streaks of the white. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a nonstick skillet over low to medium-low heat, melt butter and swirl around to coat bottom of the pan.
  • When butter is barely bubbling, add beaten eggs and allow to cook for about 20 to 30 seconds or just until they start to set. Using a spatula, swipe around the edges of the pan to create large soft curds. Don’t flip the curds over. Continue to gently push and fold the eggs to form curds for about 2 to 3 minutes or just until they're set and still slightly wet. Remove from heat immediately and let stand to warm.
  • With a knife, chop the flap steak.
  • In a large ungreased nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, warm flour tortilla, turning as needed, for about 20 to 30 seconds or until soft and pliable.
  • Place warm tortilla in a flat, clean surface. Spoon scrambled eggs and spread horizontally in the middle of the tortilla.
  • Place steak on top of eggs.
  • Spoon pico de gallo on top of the steak.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese.
  • Pull the bottom half of the burrito over to meet the top half and then pull the filling back to form a roll.
  • Fold both sides in and roll the burrito into a tight log. Transfer to a platter with seam side down and repeat the process with the remaining filling and tortilla. 
  • In a wide ungreased nonstick skillet over medium heat, place burritos with seam side down. Heat for about 1 to 2 minutes and turn to another side. Continue to heat for another 1 to 2 minutes or until tortilla is lightly browned and slightly crisp.
  • Remove from pan and cut each burrito into halves. Serve hot.

For the Pico de Gallo

  • In a bowl, combine tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, cilantro, and lime juice. Season with salt to taste. Stir to combine.
