OK, we may be getting a little cheeky with this one, but we know Nonna is all about bringing people around the table to enjoy a meal of wonderful flavours. So when tender herby beef strips, creamy pesto and caramelised onion come together in DIY tacos, we think Nonna would approve.

In a medium frying pan, heat a good drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the balsamic glaze and simmer until dark and slightly sticky, 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.

In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, add 1/2 the beef strips and cook until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and repeat with remaining beef. TIP: Cooking the beef strips in batches on a high heat prevents the meat from stewing and ensures a tender result.
