Although "al carbon" means to cook over charcoal, bring this dish indoors by sautéing steak, onions, and peppers to make a one-pan taco filling reminiscent of fajitas. The piquant flavors of lime and garlic in the dressing enhance almost anything, so feel free to substitute chicken, lamb, or shrimp for the beef.
