My local grocery store did not have flank or skirt steak so I used round steak and it turned out really tough. The salsa was excellent. Next time I will try a different cut of beef and marinade it longer.
Delicious with queso fresco! The cut of steak I used was a bit thicker so it required more than the suggested time and I used two avocados as well as red onion in the salsa. I served it with rice and beans and my family loved it!
Make the salsa Made these for dinner very tasty. The salsa is quite good; obviously you must make it with good tomatoes. Mine were grape tomatoes packed with sweet flavor. I ended up marinating for 48 hours and also I used steak already sliced up. Next time I'll try just doing the whole steak then slicing after broiling since mine was a bit overdone. Used mild feta since I couldn't find cojita. Yummy! Pros: Tasty easy Cons: requires time to marinate
Incredible I've never posted a recipe review before online but this one was just so good and easy to make I had to. The combination of the flavors was as good as any of those trendy taco joints. Marinated the flank steak for about 20hrs and cooked it over a hot grill till my thermapen read 120F in the thickest part and let sit for 5 mins before cutting thin. Though the meat tasted a bit salty by itself once combined with the salsa it just popped. The only changes I made were to the cooking using white flour fajita size tortillas adding shredded romaine lettuce and using monterey jack cheese as my local grocer didn't carry cojita.
So much amazing flavor This was one of the best recipes I've made from eatingwell.com. I actually used chicken breast instead of the steak b/c it was what I had in the fridge but everything still turned out fantastic! The other reviewers are right about the salt - I read those before hand so I didn't actually end up using any salt and it was just fine. The salsa is so simple and delicious and I made a big batch which lasted for 3 days. Next time I will definitely pick up some steak to make this. Pros: Tangy spice freshness Cons: A bit salty
Awesome flavor! We made the tacos as stated but instead of the salsa because I have picky kiddos we used sauteed green pepper and onions. The marinade was a bit salty but over all amazing flavor. Will try with salsa when the picky ones are out of the home... Pros: a bit salty
Perfect Tacos:) This was a great recipe for tacos. My boyfriend and I even made our own corn tortilla chips to go with! The only complaint is that the salsa just called for too much salt - it is overpowering...so maybe only using a half a tablespoon of salt would be better. Pros: Healthy Not too Spicy Quick Cons: Too Much Salt
I thought it would be good but it was AMAZING spectacular and PERFECT!!!!!!! I used beef tender loin instead of flank steak it is just my preference. This recipe is easy to make and is so delicious the combination of flavors was genius!!!!! I will make this again and again. My husband said that it was by far the best thing you have ever made! I have been cooking 3 meals a day for him for 15 years so that is a HUGE endorsement!!!! I used far free shredded cheddar for myself and Kraft mexican four cheese blend for my family. LOVED this so much!!!!!!! Pros: Easy to make item were all easy to find at the store amazing taste!!!! Cons: You must remember to marinate the steak.
Another great taco recipe from Eating Well! The combination of flavors in this was spectacular. Our standard family taco recipe we use for taco night is also from Eating Well. Now I am town which tacos to make. I love this version - I used multigrain tortillas which added even more the dish. I probably could have used less meat than the recipe called for. But the flavors are fantastic. Pros: Easy to make - just don't forget to start the meat marinating.
