Carne Asada Tacos

January/February 2012

Your rating: None Average: 4 (54 votes)

These flank-steak soft tacos are so tasty and easy, they should be in everyone’s repertoire. Plus they’re made with fresh corn tortillas (not fried) and topped with a quick homemade salsa made with avocado, tomato, onion and a bright squeeze of lime.

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.

Tangy, spice, freshness

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...

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.

The salsa calls for only 3/4

The salsa calls for only 3/4 tsp of salt - half as much as the half od tbs you mentioned (1/2 tbs = 1.5 tsp). The other 2 tsp of salt went into the marinade. How much salt did you put in the salsa?
