CARNE ASADA STREET TACOS #dinner #simplysteak

Road tacos are dependably a most loved of mine. Any assortment – fish, chicken, steak, or pork – is fine by me. These Carne Asada Street Tacos are easy to make and never baffle.

"Carne Asada" is basically steak (typically skirt, flank, or fold) that has been marinated in a blend of juice, garlic, herbs and zest, at that point barbecued to bestow a great singed season. When the meat is cooked, it's cut slim and served.

Except if you're one of those individuals who like their steak cooked well and can't eat it some other way, you should cook the steak close to medium uncommon. It's juicier that route and since you're not putting any extra sauce on these Carne Asada Street Tacos, you'll need them succulent. Regardless i'm getting use to cooking on an electric stove and cooked a portion of these unreasonably long for my enjoying. They were as yet wonderful and the marinade is delectable! I trust out them an attempt.

  • 12 corn tortillas

For the Marinade

  • 5-6 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ tsp. salt
  • several grinds of fresh black pepper
  • ¾ C. chopped fresh cilantro (about a large handful)

Garnish - choose what you like

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl and mix well.
  2. Put steak and marinade in zip lock bag and let steak marinate for a few hours.
  3. Remove steak from marinade. Grill steak to desired doneness (preferably medium rare).
  4. Remove from grill and let steak rest a bit, then slice against grain into thin strips.
  5. Fill warmed corn tortillas (use two per taco) with some steak, top with additional cilantro, onions and squeeze of lime.

*I bought "carne asada" steak at a local Mexican market. It's sliced very thin and cooks up quick! You can use flank or skirt steak. Adjust cooking time according to thickness of steak.

For a more non-traditional street taco add other toppings like avocado, cheese or pico de gallo. If you want more spice top with your favorite hot sauce.
