Family Friendly: Steak Tacos

These steak tacos are a step above the rest thanks to a two-step cooking process. First, the steaks are sous vide to ensure a perfect temperature throughout. Then, the steaks are rubbed with a combination of cumin and chili powder, and seared until well browned and fragrant. The spices develop a crust on the exterior of the meat, giving the steak more texture. A simple lime crema, some chopped onion, and a little cilantro are all you need to finish off your street-style tacos.
