"This was really good! I also used sirloin steak, sliced thin. It had just the right amount of smoky flavor. My husband was grabbing the steak right out of the pan, didn't even wait for a tortilla. Will definitely make this again."

"Really good. Increased garlic pwr to 1/2 tea and sliced sirloin steak very thin. Had to laugh @ 5hungrykids, she always has leftover steak! Who has leftover steak? Not in my lifetime, to date!"

"This was so authentic tasting. I didn't have cumin so I used 1 tsp of Mexican chili powder gave it lost of flavor. Also, I used 1/2 cup fresh deli salsa which gave it some kick. the left over NY strip steak had been seasoned with Montreal steak seasoning. So good, this will now be my go to recipe for leftover steak."

"This was very good. I also make extra when I cook steak for tacos and such. I made the recipe as is, it was good. But, for our taste I added 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes for some heat. I will make this again!"

"Absolutely fabulous recipe! We always have leftover steak so this works great for me. My kids love these as well. A definite plus as they are very picky with "Mexican" food. Thanks for sharing."

"This was so super easy and tastes fantastic! Even my picky husband liked it and he didn't say I was wasting perfectly good (leftover) steak."

"I wish I could make an extra steak for this everynight. This was oh so yummy, but there's no way this feeds six in my family. I'd have to have at least 3 extra steaks on hand...we couldn't get enough of it. I will also try this recipe with leftover roast the next time I have some."

"Scrrrrrrrrumptious! Very, very good. I just used the steak that we had leftover from the previous dinner and it was just fine.

First I sautéed the onion in butter, then I put in the cooked steak until it was browned a little more. After all that, I just stuck to the recipe.
My husband really, really likes it (and he is a little picky), and would eat it again in a heartbeat... except he doesn't want to waste a fresh steak :D. We agree that this is the perfect recipe for leftover steaks."
