  • 4 People


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Knorr® Beef flavor Bouillon or 1 Knorr® Beef flavor Bouillon Cube, crumbled, divided
  • 1 lb. beef top round steak or or your favorite cut of beef, pounded 1/4-inch thick, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 poblano pepper, roasted, peeled and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 (10-in.) burrito size flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  1. Evenly sprinkle 1 tablespoon Knorr® Beef flavor Bouillon (or 1/2 crumbled Bouillon cube*) over steak.

  2. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in large skillet over high heat and cook steak, in batches, turning once, until desired doneness, about 1 minute. (Be sure not to overcook so steak stays juicy.) Remove steak and set aside.

  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet over medium-high heat and cook onions, stirring occasionally, until very soft and golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in poblano pepper and garlic and cook about 1 minute.

  4. Stir in water, cilantro and remaining 1/2 tablespoon Bouillon (or 1/2 crumbled Bouillon cube) and cook about 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside.

  5. Slice steak. Heat 1 tortilla in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 1 minute. Place 1/4 of the sliced steak, then 1/4 of the onion mixture and 1/4 of the cheese on one half of the tortilla. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling.

  6. Cook over medium-high heat, pressing down with a spatula, until bottom is lightly browned. Carefully turn quesadilla and cook until lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Remove quesadilla and keep warm. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

  7. To serve, cut each quesadilla into wedges.
