Rib-Eye Pincho Morunos

Ingredients – Serves 4:

  • – 4x rib eye steak
  • – 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • – 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • – 1 tablespoon sweet Spanish paprika
  • – 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • – 1 teaspoon oregano
  • – ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • – ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • – 1 teaspoon salt
  • – 5 minced garlic cloves
  • – ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • – 1x lemon zest
  • – Lemon wedges (for serving), herb alioli
  • – seasoning


  1. Mix all spices, olive oil, seasoning and lemon zest in a bowl and then pour over the steaks, rub in well.
  3. Leave marinating ideally overnight.
  5. Remove the marinated steaks and scrape excess marinade off.
  7. Grill on a high heat until browned on the outside to desired temperature.
  9. Don’t forget to rest the meat.

Fresh Tacos

Prepare the Dough:

Makes about 16 small tacos – we will make about 4 to 8 during the class, you can save the remaining dough in a bowl covered in cling film or roll the ball of dough in cling.

Ingredients – Serves 2:

  • – 185g plain or 00 flour – plus extra for dusting
  • – 20 ml of olive oil
  • – 80ml water
  • – 0.5tsp of baking powder


  1. Add the flour, baking powder, olive oil & 80ml water to the mixing bowl, stir all together using a wooden spoon…once it all combines, take the dough with your hand until it becomes a springy dough.   If your dough is too sticky, add a little more flour..if too crumbly, add a little more water.
  3. Set Aside – it doesn’t need to rest for long, but you can wait until you need to cook.  Then split into 3 – you will make your tacos, burritos and quesadilla later.


  1. Split dough into 8 balls, heat frying pan to high heat, while the temperature builds, sprinkle flour on clean work surface or board, and some on your rolling pin.
  3. Take a ball of dough, flatten into rough circle with your hand then roll until thin, keep turning and flipping over.
  5. Add 2 -3 tacos to your pan at a time and cook until you see the taco blister and char.
  7. Once both sides cooked, keep wrapped in tea towel – this softens the taco.
  9. Cook all your tacos and then you are ready to serve.

Elote (Mexican Grilled Corn)

  3. To make the harissa paste. Run the food processor, and while it’s running, drizzle the extra virgin olive oil from the top opening.
