Steak Street Tacos

What is so special about Tuesday that it is affectionately called 'Taco Tuesday'?! In my opinion, we would all be a whole lot happier if it were Taco Monday, Taco Tuesday, Taco Wednesday, Taco Thursday...you get the point. Tacos were made for any day, any meal!


The versatility of tacos is part of what makes them so enticing. You could pretty much come up with any combination and put it inside a delicious locally made shell and boom, it's a taco. Genius! They are also super easy to make and do not require hardly any prep. Also genius! Not to mention, who does NOT like tacos? No one. Also genius!

These ones are delicious with just the marinated flank steak, onions, cilantro & lime as they are with the pico and secret sauce. They are even more delightful when you put them in the crazy tasty local white corn tortillas and throw some cojita on there like my husband likes to do! The pictures below are the three ways we make these Steak Street Tacos depending on what we are in the mood for.

You will want to marinate the flank steak for at least 6 hours or up to 24. I always try for the 24 hour mark but sometimes life gets in the way and I end up only doing 6 hours. They are still super tasty!



Ingredients for Flank Steak Marinade:

  • 1-2lb flank steak

  • 1/4 cup orange juice

Process:

Place all ingredients in a ziplock baggie or bowl and marinate for 6-24hrs. Grill to desired temperature (we like medium rare). Let steak sit for 5-10 minutes before you cut into it. Cut against the grain and chop into small pieces. Serve with the following garnishes:
