  • 8 oz Butcher Box sirloin steak fat trimmed and sliced into thin pieces
  • 1/2 cup red onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup tomatoes chopped
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat Mexican cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsp crema or sour cream
  • 6 tbsp authentic salsa one tablespoon per taco
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • Trader Joe's Taco Seasoning to taste
  • McCormick's Grill Mates Steak Rub and pepper to taste


  • Turn the Instant Pot on the saute' function. When the pot displays "Hot" add the olive oil to the pot.
  • Season the Butcher Box steak with the seasonings. Add the steak to the pot. 
  • Cook both sides of the steak for 2-3 minutes until the steak turns brown.
  • Remove the steak from the pot. Top the steak with cheese immediately if you prefer melted cheese on your tacos.
  • Turn the oven on Broil. When heated, add the corn tortillas to the oven. Place the tortillas directly on an oven rack. Allow the tortillas to warm for a couple of minutes.
  • Remove the tortillas and add the steak, crema, salsa, and tomatoes. Sprinkle the cilantro throughout.


Add a teaspoon of Liquid Smoke for a smoky, grilled taste.
For shredded tacos use a roast instead of sirloin and the Stew Meat pressure cooker setting after sauteeing the meat.
