These tasty easy barbacoa beef steak tacos are a great bbq dish! Healthy as well as full of flavour, it's a recipe that's perfect for the bbq this summer.
When the weather is hot like it is right now, the only foods I really want to eat are salads and barbecue dishes. These barbacoa beef steak tacos are a great combination of the two as well as being an easy summer recipe. You can cook the beef on the bbq and then serve it with loads of salad for a healthy delicious meal.
I have to admit that I made these a couple of days ago when we couldn't have a bbq and the beef is so tasty even when cooked in a frying pan. I just know it would be a great recipe to remake this weekend when we do hope to do some cooking outside!
How to prepare the barbacoa beef steak tacos
Prepare all the toppings for the tacos first. I had salad leaves, tomatoes, radishes, sliced red chillies and red onion but you could also add avocado, sweet corn and spring onions. I topped with a little sour cream, lime juice and chopped fresh coriander but of course, you might want to add extra chilli sauce or guacamole. Even a little crumbled feta would be great. In our house we all like different toppings and this is the type of meal that can please everyone. My rather picky children can add as many or as few salad items as they want.
The beef is then so simple to cook. Just rub the seasoning in well and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Or a little longer for a well done steak.
For the steak rub I used the Santa Maria Argeninian Barbacoa Beef Steak rub from their new Latin American Kitchen range. The rub contains a mixture of seasonings including chilli pepper, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano and ginger. It gives the meat a lovely smoky flavour even if it isn't cooked on the bbq!
I'd definitely recommend it along with the other products in the Santa Maria Latin American Kitchen range. Sometimes life is busy and even if you want to cook from scratch, using a sauce or seasoning mix just gives you a little extra time on days when there are so many other things to do.

The Santa Maria Latin American Kitchen range includes seasoning mixes, sauces, rice, tortillas, toppings and sides. It's a "Mix and Match" range with everything designed to work together and above all, keep everyone in the family happy! We all enjoyed the coconut taste of the Mini Coconut and Black Pepper Tortillas. Also, after really enjoying the Cuban Chilli Sofrito sauce (see below) I'm now looking forward to trying the Caribbean Pineapple and Chilli Sticky Sauce as well as the Peruvian Garlic and Tomato Sauce. I'll be trying these soon on a busy weeknight.
Cuban chilli sofrito chicken stuffed marrow
So, what did I prepare with the Cuban Chilli Sofrito Sauce? Well, last week Master Spice and I went fruit and vegetable picking and came home with a marrow to cook. A few years ago I wouldn't have known what to do with it but having experimented with a few stuffed marrow recipes over the last few years I knew just how to serve it.
I halved the marrow, scooped out some of the seeds, seasoned it with a little black pepper and sprayed with olive oil. I then roasted it the oven. While it was cooking, I sliced up a couple of chicken breasts and cooked them in a saucepan. Then I added the Santa Maria Cuban Chilli Sofrito and simmered till the chicken was cooked through. I then filled the marrow halves with the chicken and sauce. It would have been lovely with rice or flatbreads but the marrow was a great alternative too. So if you're wondering what to do with a marrow...
