Ingredients

How to make it

  • Lay the flank steak in a large glass baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce, 4 cloves of garlic, juice of two limes, and olive oil. Season with salt, black pepper, white pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, oregano, cumin and paprika. Whisk until well blended, then pour over the steak in the dish. Turn over once to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap, and marinate for 1 to 8 hours.
  • In a small bowl, stir together 1 chopped white onion, cilantro, and the juice of 1 lime. Set aside to use as a relish for the tacos.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Toast Chile pods in the skillet for a few minutes, then remove to a bowl of water to soak for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  • Place the tomatoes, 1 onion, jalapenos, and 4 cloves of garlic onto a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, until toasted but not burnt. Place the roasted vegetables, and soaked Chile pods into a blender or food processor, along with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut the marinated flank steak into cubes or strips. Cook, stirring constantly, until the meat is cooked through and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Warm the tortillas in a skillet for about a minute on each side to make them pliable. Tortillas may also be warmed in a microwave oven. Arrange two or three tortillas on a plate, and lay a generous amount of beef over them. Top with a sprinkle of the onion relish and a large spoonful of the pureed salsa. Add as much cheese as you like. Garnish with lime wedges, and serve.

    I thought I made good carne asada- well I do, but I am going to have to encorporate some of your methods. However,I too prefer skirt steak. Youre salsa sounds especially good too.

    You can also try it with skirt steak that would be the authentic meat. It has its own taste that is unique when grilled on flat skillet or over flame.
    Overall This is a awesome recipe!

    Unless it was you who posted the recipe over a year ago, this recipe was ripped from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Taqueria-Style-Tacos---Carne-Asada/Detail.aspx
    You should probably reference the URL that you got the recipe from instead of taking all the credit.

    I only made the steak portion of this meal (not the sauce/salsa), but it was absolutely delicious! My husband and I ate it for days on end. It makes awesome quesadillas!

    Made this last night and I'm looking forward to left overs tonight. = ) I did not have any corn tortillas, but I make flour ones and it worked perfectly.

    Although this recipe calls for it to be cooked in a skillet it's even better when grilled. Just make sure it's a hot grill and the meat cooks quickly.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I love it but have never tried to make it before. Your recipe, as usual, looks like the real deal.
