  1. In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 7 to 9 minutes or until crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to small bowl; set aside. Reserve skillet with bacon drippings.

Expert Tips

  • Add even more steakhouse wedge flavor to your Steakhouse Tacos by topping with crumbled blue cheese.
  • Grocery stores vary in the different cuts of rib eye steak they carry. If you can only find larger steaks, you can still make these Steakhouse Tacos. Purchase a thick (1.5-lb) steak and cut it in half to create the 2 (12-oz) steaks called for in the recipe.
  • If desired, you can substitute hearty, flavorful baby spinach in place of the iceberg lettuce.
