Flat Iron Steak Crunch Wrap Burritos

Today I tried a new recipe that was shared with me by my “smoking friends” Adam and Laura from the Smoking Meats Forum. Adam and Laura’s recipe is their take on a fast food version of the Crunch Wrap Burritos.  I don’t usually eat at fast food establishments so when I saw Adam and Laura’s recipe I thought to myself, “this really looks like a tasty recipe I need to try.”  Checkout Adam and Laura’s version of this recipe http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/168635/taco-bells-crunch-wrapsThanks Adam and Laura for sharing your recipe – here’s my version of  “Crunch Wrap Burritos”

I started off with 1  1/2 lb. flat iron steak that I marinated overnight with the following ingredients:

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning

1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

1 teaspoon granulated onion

2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Mix all the marinating ingredients together. Place Flat Iron Steak in a glass dish and pour marinade over the steak. Cover with a lid (or plastic wrap) and refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor.


I roasted my bell peppers on the stove top using the following method;  I placed (1) green bell pepper and (1) red bell pepper on my stove burners.  I charred the peppers on all sides.  Then I removed them from the burners to a glass bowl, covered with plastic wrap and let the peppers sweat for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes I removed the peppers from the bowl and took off the charred skin, sliced and kept out what I needed for this recipe and stored the rest in a jar with olive oil for another use. I ALWAYS have roasted peppers on hand.


I sliced 1 medium sweet onions and sautéed it with a pinch of red pepper flakes, olive oil, and a dash of kosher salt.  Cook onions until softened and caramelized. Remove to a dish, cover and set aside until ready to use.

The next day I removed my Flat Iron Steak from the marinade and let it sit on a plate for 20 minutes before I added it to the grill.  I grilled it over high heat – 3 minutes per side.  I removed it to a plate and let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing it.

In the meantime, I prepared my corn tortillas;  I placed a cast iron frying pan over medium high heat and added enough peanut oil to coat the bottom of the pan.   I took 2 corn tortillas and cut them in half – placed in the hot frying pan and cooked until golden brown. Removed 1 tortilla to a wire rack until ready to use and I snacked on the other one!

I sliced my Flat Iron Steak into thin slices, added it to a pan along with, a splash of olive oil, sliced bell peppers, sautéed onions, and 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning (I make my own Taco Seasoning – you can use your favorite store purchased kind).  Toss steak and veggies in the pan just long enough to blend and warm thru.


Now it’s time to start building my Crunch Wrap Burritos.  I started with 2 High Fiber Low Carb Whole Wheat Tortilla Wraps, Sprinkled some Mexican 4 Cheeses on top and added the cooked corn tortilla chip to each.


Added my *Homemade Crème Fraiche, Sliced Flat Iron Steak, peppers/sautéed onions, salsa, and a second Whole Wheat Tortilla Wrap on top. Tuck the second tortilla wrap around the bottom tortilla tightly and place into a frying pan seamed side down.  I added just enough peanut oil to coat the bottom of my frying pan. Fry over medium high heat until golden brown, then flip over and fry the other side until golden brown.



 Remove from pan and serve immediately with your favorite salsa!


 *NOTE: If you don’t want to make your own Homemade Crème Fraiche, you can use store purchased sour cream…..if you must! I’m telling you –  Homemade Crème Fraiche taste so much better than sour cream.  Checkout my easy video on “Making Crème Fraiche” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKp3xDFfSBc – Once you make your first batch of Crème Fraiche you will be hooked and you will never buy sour cream again……
