MEXICAN STREET TACOS

advertisement

Easy, quick, authentic carne asada street tacos you can now make right at home! Top with onion, cilantro + fresh lime juice! SO GOOD! You truly begin to miss things once they are gone. That’s not just a saying. It’s real life.
See, I lived a block away from a famous taco truck back in LA. And as much as I love street tacos, I only went there maybe four times a year.

And now that I’ve moved to Chicago, all I think about is the proximity of that taco truck back home in Los Angeles. If that taco truck were here in Chiberia, I would go four times a day!
But until I get back to LA, here is my rendition of my favorite street tacos that I miss so dearly. It’s a quick recipe using a simple marinade for your skirt steak. It just needs 1 hour of marinating before you throw it onto a skillet. From there, you can top off your tacos with diced onion, cilantro and fresh lime juice.

 

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
12 mini flour tortillas, warmed
3/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 lime, cut into wedges

 

DIRECTIONS

In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, 1 tablespoon canola oil, garlic, chili powder, cumin and oregano.
In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine soy sauce mixture and steak; marinate for at least 1 hour up to 4 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
Heat remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add steak and marinade, and cook, stirring often, until steak has browned and marinade has
reduced, about 5-6 minutes, or until desired doneness.
Serve steak in tortillas, topped with onion, cilantro and lime.
ENJOY !!
