Steak Tacos with Boston Lettuce

Guess what?  I just signed for my first 5K Mud Run.  I am so excited!  I have been wanting to do one of these for a while, but like most things, I wanted a buddie to run with.  Well, a buddie found me and now me and Mike are officially signed up to run in just a few short weeks.  I can’t wait, but also a little nervous because I am not a runner.  Well, let me clarify, I’m not fond of running unless its after a ball of some sort.  I don’t like to run for the sake of running.  So this should be interesting, but at least I can say I did a MUD RUN! 🙂

Mike and I have been on a Taco kick lately, and with all the working out and eating well lately these Paleo Skirt Steak Tacos fit right in.  Instead of the typical tortilla you would use for a taco, just substitute Boston Lettuce leaves.  It’s such a simple switch but so much better for you! These Steak tacos are perfect, although they can get a little messy.  But let me assure you, the mess is so worth it.  They will definitely be on the regular rotation in our house!

How to Make these Healthy Tacos

To get started, heat grill to medium high heat.  Season a room temperature skirt steak with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper. {for a tender piece of steak, have the butcher tenderize it}  Place on grill and grill each side for 4-5 minutes.
