Easy Beef Burrito Recipe

Fresh and Fast – Beef Burrito


Easy Beef Burrito Recipe


This is a recipe I made pre-children. I used to marinate the steak in vodka and lime before cooking but I don’t do that these days as obviously it would not be very child friendly!  This is a Fresh and Fast Friday Recipe, very quick to make.

  • Serves: 4
  • Preparation time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 11 minutes


Salsa Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado diced into small cubes
  • 1 punnet of cherry tomatoes diced into small pieces
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped (leave out for the kids)
  • 1 bunch of coriander – leaves removed and chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 capsicum diced into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • sqeeze of lime juice
  • salt and pepper

Sauce Ingredients:

  • Juice of 1 lime (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 4 tablespoons of natural yoghurt
  • 1 pack of Tortillas or flat bread wraps of choice
  • Rump Steak – 400 grams – very finely sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon of cooking oil
  • handful of baby spinach leaves 



  1. Combine all of the salsa ingredients and set aside
  2. Heat the oven to 160 degrees and add the tortillas wrapped in foil to warm for 10 minutes. Turn off the oven
  3. Mix the sauce ingredients together and set aside
  4. Heat a pan and cook the sliced steak for a minute remove from the heat
  5. To assemble spread the sauce on the tortilla, add the steak and salsa and spinach leaves
  6. Fold the tortilla to encase the mixture and serve

Hints and Tips:

  • Make up tortillas as required and leave those yet to be made covered in the warm oven (turned off)
  • If you have some extra time the salsa has a great kick if you make it early and let it marinate with the chilli

    We are big mexican fans in this house, particularly if it’s wrapped in a tortilla. Got a recipe for fresh tortillas, if you’re interested. Easy, cheap, and can’t compare them to bought!

      Thanks Linda, that would be great! Yes please I would like to try. They would make a good alternative to bread for lunch I think too.If the recipe is short and easy feel free to post here via the comments
