Carne Asada Tacos


There was a point last week that I ate Mexican food 3 days in a row…not mad about it, even a little bit. Day 3 happened to be these Carne Asada Tacos. And let me tell you…if there had been leftovers, I would’ve had them the next day and made it 4 days in a row!

The best part was how simple they were to make. Mixed up the marinade late afternoon, tossed the steak on the BBQ a few hours later, chopped a couple ingredients and piled them on a tortilla. Done!

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl and whisk together. Put steak in a zip lock bag, pour marinade over the top of the steak. Close zip lock bag and allow steak to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  2. Prepare a grill to medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade and grill to desired doneness, approximately 8 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  3. Remove steak from grill and let rest for 10 minutes, the slice steak against the grain into thin slices.
