Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 large navel oranges

1-1/2 tablespoons extra light olive oil

3 teaspoons jerk seasoning

1 pound boneless beef tri-tip steak, cut 1 inch thick

2 cups baby arugula

1 Fresh California Avocado, peeled, sliced

16 white corn tortillas (6-inch diameter), warmed

1/3 cup chopped salted cashews


1. Cut one orange in half; squeeze juice from one half to measure about 3 tablespoons. For dressing, combine juice, olive oil and 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning in small bowl. Mix well; set aside.

2. Rub beef steak on both sides with remaining jerk seasoning.

3. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; grill steak, covered, 10 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 10 to 14 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Carve steak diagonally into thin slices.

4. Meanwhile, peel remaining orange and orange half; cut into sections. Place in medium bowl with arugula and avocado. Add dressing; toss gently.

5. Stack two tortillas for each taco. Top one side of tortillas with beef slices, arugula-avocado mixture and cashews; fold in half. Serve immediately.
