Skirt Steak Quesadillas

  • Author: Misfits Market
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • ½ pound skirt steak
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 5 scallions
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup Havarti cheese, shredded
  • For serving: guacamole, sour cream, hot sauce


  1. Season steak with olive oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, and cumin. Cook on high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let the steak rest for 5 minutes. Then, slice steak into strips or cubes.
  2. Meanwhile, in the same pan, char scallions over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until scallions become browned. Transfer to a cutting board and roughly chop.
  3. In a clean pan over medium heat, lay down 1 tortilla and spread a generous layer of cheese over half of the surface. Arrange steak and scallions over the cheese, then fold the other side of the tortilla over the cheesy side to form a half-moon shape. Cook, pressing down gently on the surface, until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Repeat and make three more quesadillas.
  4. Cut each quesadilla in half and serve with guacamole, sour cream, and hot sauce.
