Ingredients

  • 2

    lb beef flank steak (or skirt steak if

  • cheaper)

  • Salt and pepper - to taste

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil - divided

  • 4

    cloves garlic - minced

  • 1

    onion - sliced very thin

  • 2

    tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1

    cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 10

    small flour tortillas

  • Sour cream - for serving

  • Salsa - for serving

Directions

1) Salt and pepper flank steak on both sides to taste. Place steak, 2 T of olive oil, and garlic in a large ziploc bag. Massage oil and garlic into meat for about 3 minutes. Turn oven to high broil. Place meat in a large baking dish. Place oven rack on highest notch. With oven door open, broil steak for 4 - 5 minutes on each side - depending on how well done you want it. When done, set aside and turn oven to 350. 2) While meat is broiling, heat 1 T of olive oil in a medium size skillet. Keep fire on low to medium heat. Once oil is heated, add onions and stir. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes and add brown sugar. Continue cooking and stirring until onions are clear and look carmelized, about 3 - 4 more minutes. Remove from heat when done. 3) Slice steak in thin strips across the grain. Cut slices into bite size pieces in the other direction. 4) Assemble quesadillas on a large baking sheet. Brush olive oil onto 1 side of flour tortilla and lay oiled side on pan. Distribute steak, onions, and cheddar evenly over 5 brushed tortillas. Place remaining tortillas over filling and brush the side that is up lightly with olive oil. Place in preheated oven and bake for 3 - 4 minutes on each side. *Don't forget to move your rack back to the middle.* 5) Serve with salsa and sour cream.
