This is one of those meals where you don't need to know anything about cooking to make this. It's foolproof, I promise. It's also cheap to make, has less than 10 ingredients, isn't bad for you and will be done in less than 30 minutes. That all adds up to a great weeknight meal, don't you think?
My notes: I do everything the recipe says but add cilantro. I just wish I could go to the grocery store and only get like 2-3 sprigs of cilantro instead of a whole bunch. I just don't need or want that much cilantro and I hate wasting the money. So, add it if you want but you won't necessarily miss the flavor if you don't add it. Enjoy!

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute 3 minutes, until soft. Add roast beef slices and saute 3 to 5 minutes, until browned on all sides, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes, jalapenos, lime juice, and cumin and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes, to heat through and reduce slightly.
