Baja Steak

There is very little take-away food that my husband can safely eat without having to worry about sulphites, in particular.  A while ago we did have a Baja Steak bowl from a mexican take-away shop.  We now make our own version of this at home.

My husband BBQ’s the steak which we then slice thinly and add over rice with lime juice & coriander, served with tomato, capsicum, onion & lettuce.  Not quite like the original shop bought version but close enough & yummy.
