Carne Asada Tacos
- Yields: 8 Servings
- Cook time: 12 minutes
- Prep time: 15 minutes
- 2 pounds flank steak
- 4 cloves garlic (minced)
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup lime juice (divided)
- ½ cup diced onion (divided)
- 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro (divided)
- 1 jalapeño (stem and seeds removed then finely diced)
- 16 corn tortillas
Place beef, garlic, soy sauce, 3 tbsp. lime juice, ¼ cup diced onion, chili powder, pepper, coriander, and 2 tbsp. cilantro in a large resealable bag, seal and shake to combine all of the ingredients. Refrigerate the beef for 2–4 hours to fully absorb the marinade.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining lime juice, onion and cilantro along with the diced jalapeño and blend well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Prepare grill for high heat cooking (approximately 450°F). Remove flank steak from the marinade and grill for approximately 5–6 per side until it reaches an internal temperature of 130°F for medium rare. Remove the flank steak from the grill and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain then cutting into bite sized pieces. As the steak rests, place the corn tortillas on the grill. Grill tortillas on one side for approximately 2 minutes until lightly toasted and fragrant.
Assemble each taco by placing grilled flank steak onto 2 stacked corn tortillas. Top with the onion, jalapeño and cilantro mixture then serve immediately.
