- 1 pound beef top sirloin, 3/4 thick*
- 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 6 flour tortillas (low-fat), 6 to 8 inches in diameter**
- 1 cup sour cream (fat-free)
- 1 tablespoon horseradish, prepared
- 6 cups lettuce, shredded
- 1/2 large red onion, chopped***
- 1 large tomato, chopped***
Preheat broiler in oven and set rack about 3 to 4 inches below heating elements.
Cut all visible fat from sirloin steak. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, oregano, and cumin. Rub the spice mixture over both sides of the beef and let stand for 15 minutes at room temperature.
Heat broiler; broil steak approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side or until done to your preference using a meat thermometer.
When the steaks are done to your liking, remove from oven, let sit 15 minutes before serving (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the oven). Slice steak across grain into 1/8-inch slices.
Warm tortillas according to package directions.
In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and horseradish. Spread 3 tablespoons of the sour cream mixture over the top of each tortilla. Top each tortilla with 1 cup of lettuce; sprinkle with chopped red onion and tomatoes. Divide beef into equal portions and top each tortilla with beef.
Fold one end of a tortilla up about 1 inch over filling then fold the left and right sides over the folded end, overlapping and serve.

I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen Thermometer. Originally designed for professional use, the Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer is used by chefs all over the world. I only endorse a few products, on my web site, that I like and use regularly.
