  • 1/2 teaspoon Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground black pepper

  1. FOR THE HERB PASTE: Pulse cilantro, garlic, scallions, jalapeño, and cumin in food processor until finely chopped, ten to twelve 1-second pulses, scraping down sides as necessary.
  2. Add oil and process until mixture is smooth and resembles pesto, about 15 seconds, scraping down sides of workbowl as necessary.
  3. Transfer 2 tablespoons herb paste to medium bowl; whisk in lime juice and set aside. FOR THE STEAK: Using dinner fork, poke each piece of steak 10 to 12 times on each side.
  4. Place in large baking dish; rub all sides of steak pieces evenly with salt and then coat with remaining herb paste.

  7. Place steak in skillet and cook until well browned, about 3 minutes.
  8. Flip steak and sear until second side is well browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Using tongs, stand each piece on a cut side and cook, turning as necessary, until all cut sides are well browned and internal temperature registers 125 to 130 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, 2 to 7 minutes.
  10. Transfer steak to cutting board and let rest 5 minutes. FOR THE TACOS: Using sharp chef’s knife or carving knife, slice steak pieces across grain into 1/8-inch-thick pieces.
  11. Transfer sliced steak to bowl with herb paste-lime juice mixture and toss to coat.
  12. Season with salt.
