  • 600 g beef strips
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 small red onion, shredded
  • 1 small red capsicum, shredded
  • 1 small green capsicum, shredded
  • 1 small lime
  • tortillas, sour cream, grated cheese and lettuce to serve


  1. Coat the beef strips with oil, sprinkle with ground cumin and sweet paprika and season with salt and pepper. Preheat a nonstick pan to moderately-hot. Keep the heat at moderately-high.
  2. Cook the beef in three batches. Remove each batch and set it aside.
  3. Add onion and capsicum to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Return beef to pan, stir to warm and squeeze the juice from a fresh lime over the beef. Remove beef from pan immediately.
  4. Serve beef with warm tortillas, sour cream, grated cheese and lettuce.


  • Coat the meat in oil instead of adding oil to the pan or wok (you use less oil this way). You can also add ingredients like a little soy or grated ginger for extra flavour.
