Carne Asada Tacos

Ready to eat Carne Asada Taco

Carne asada is simply Mexican beef steak, its most often thin cuts of beef such as flank, skirt and hanger steak. I like to make a quick marinade with salt, pepper, chili powder and fresh lime juice, after a brief period to let the meat absorb the marinade flavors its on to a hot grill to quickly cook, when done it comes off the heat and rests for a few minutes. When cutting its best to have thin slices cut across the grain, next the meat is piled into a waiting warm tortilla. Mine will always have plenty of Guacamole and hot sauce. Now wheres the cold beers?
