Instructions:

  1. Season the thinly sliced flank steak with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the steak until browned on both sides. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Sauté the sliced onions and bell peppers until softened and caramelized.
  4. Combine the cooked steak with the sautéed vegetables in the skillet, mixing well.
  5. In a separate pan or griddle, melt a bit of butter over medium heat.
  6. Place a flour tortilla on the pan, add a layer of the steak and vegetable mixture, and sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
  7. Top with another tortilla and cook until the bottom is golden brown.
  8. Flip the quesadilla and cook until the other side is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  9. Repeat the process for the remaining tortillas and filling.

Notes:

  • Customize with your favorite cheese blend or add mushrooms for an extra layer of flavor.
  • Serve with a side of salsa, guacamole, or sour cream for dipping.
