Carne Asada tacos are one of my favorite street foods I like to eat when I go to Mexico. I used to work in a catering job that sold tacos, and I can remember selling over 200 tacos in an hour using this recipe. Huge lines of people waiting to make their order. I always enjoyed hearing the compliments from the customers how delicious the tacos were. I like to focus on the meat before making a taco. I want to make sure the meat is nice and flavorful, so when you add your condiments, it is a bonus of flavor. Also, my preferred method to cook carne asada, is grilled over Mesquite lump charcoal. It adds a nice smokey flavor and has always been my favorite way of cooking it.
This recipe can be reduced in half, the marinade is measured for 4lbs of meat.
Ingredients: 4 lbs Flap meat or skirt steak 1/4 cup soy sauce 1 orange squeezed 1 lime squeezed 1 tbsp garlic powder 1 tsp oregano crushed 1 sliced onion 1 cup cilantro chopped 1 tsp kosher salt 1 tsp black pepper 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Green or red salsa
Lime or lemon
Or any of your favorite things you like to put in your tacos.
I like to let carne asada marinade for at least 24 hours. But if your tight on time, 4 hours is enough time to marinate your beef.
Cook your beef to your preference and enjoy your carne asada tacos!
