Paleo Steak Tostadas

As a food blogger, I’m at the store on the daily stocking up on fresh produce and other goodies in order to keep creating delicious heathy recipes for you! That’s why I was super excited when I found out about the new Market 5-ONE-5 opening up in my neighborhood last month! I’ve teamed up with them to bring you these delicious grain-free, dairy-free Paleo Steak Tostadas made with real food ingredients found in their market.

I try to buy fresh, organic and local produce as much as possible, so when I heard about Market 5-ONE-5’s new store concept I was instantly smitten! Their goal is simply to make healthy eating easy! The ONE in their name stands for Organics, Nutrition, and Education, and they give back to local charities in the community, which I absolutely love! They are also dedicated to helping others understand that REAL FOOD influences wellbeing.

I was invited to attend the pre-grand opening of their store located at 915 R street in the historic R Street corridor of Downtown Sacramento and let me tell you, it is beautiful! As soon as I saw all of the amazing Paleo products they carry along with organic grass-fed pasture raised meats, organic fruits and veggies and sustainable wild-caught seafood I was in absolute heaven!

It’s like walking into an indoor farmer’s market, or your old neighborhood market with a more modern feel. The inside is beautiful with not only a rainbow of organic produce once you first set foot through the doors, but historic artifacts special to the area and reclaimed wood on the outside and inside of the building! They offer wellness specialists to help you with all your questions, a hot bar and my favorite…bulk bins!

The prices were also really competitive and I spotted so many of my most favorite products like Siete grain-free tortillas, Kite Hill dairy-free almond based cheeses, Diestel Lunch meat, GT kombucha and healthy elixirs like Rebbl drinks bubbling with maca and ashwaganda. So many good reasons to check out this store!

As soon as I saw the grain-free tortillas and flank steak, I knew I wanted to make an easy tostada recipe that you guys could whip up in your own kitchens! I love how all of the ingredients come together to bring you a healthier version of a classic that doesn’t skimp on flavor!

I highly suggest using my Easy Peasy Guacamole recipe to help you achieve tostada nirvana! It really is a staple in our household and well probably every household in California. It seems like the perfect topping for almost all of our real food meals! I hope you enjoy the recipe and check out Market 5-ONE-5 if you’re local to the area or if you’re ever passing through. You’ll probably catch me in the cafe sipping on healthy drink. If so, please come say hi!

Paleo Steak Tostadas

Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Yield: 4

Serving Size: 4-6

Ingredients

  • 1 lb flank steak
    For The Marinade:
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tbs avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • salt & pepper to taste
    For the Fajitas:
  • 2 large bell peppers, sliced into 1/4 inch strips
  • 1 large onion, sliced into 1/4 inch strips
  • 1 tbsp of a high heat oil like avocado
  • 1 pkg of 8 Siete grain-free tortillas, almond or cassava
  • 1 pkg Kite Hill almond milk ricotta cheese

Instructions

  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in large resealable food bag. Pierce flank steak with a fork all over and add to the bag. Tightly seal and turn several times to mix up marinade and coat steak well. Place bag into another container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hrs. Make sure to turn occasionally.
  2. Once steak is marinated, set oven to your broiler's highest setting. Add steak to a lined roasting pan or on top of a wire rack on a lined baking sheet. Place oven rack a few inches below the broiler and broil flank steak on each side for 4-6 mins. (8-12 total mins.) depending on how rare you like your meat. Check meat for doneness, outside edges should be crispy and little charred. Once done, let rest for 5 mins.
  3. While meat is resting, heat 1 tablespoon oil in skillet; add sliced bell pepper and onion. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent and bell peppers are tender enough for you (6 to 10 minutes).
  4. While fajita mix is cooking, turn oven down to 375 degrees. Add tortillas to a lined pan and cook for 5-10 mins., until golden and crispy. Set aside to cool.
  5. Place steak onto cutting board; slice across grain into 1/4-inch slices. Layer all toppings on top of your crispy tostadas and serve immediately!
