Beef Tacos are delicious and easy to prepare.
Prep time: 10 mins (plus an hour marinating time)
Cooking time: 5-10 mins
3 lbs of flank or round steak (tenderized)
1/3 cup of fresh lemon or lime juice (preferably fresh squeezed)
1 large white onion, thinly sliced
3 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp finely ground oregano
salt and pepper
1 dozen corn tortillas
- Place the 3lbs of flank or round steak on a plate or in a bowl. Add pepper, oregano and garlic powder evenly over the meat. Pour lemon or lime juice over the meat and add sliced onions, be sure to mix. Let the meat marinate for at least an hour. The longer you leave it to marinate the better.
- Place the meat on a griddle over medium to high heat. Once meat is evenly heated on both sides chop into small pieces.
- Heat the corn tortillas. Once the tortillas are heated assemble the tacos by placing the meat on the tortillas. Add cilantro, onions and salsa.
