Sapo’s Carne Asada Tacos
For this recipe you can use any cut of beef you would use for a fajita: Rump, skirt or flank steak are the best in terms of size, shape, and fat content.
Grab a knife and slice it into thin strips – carefully slice parallel to the cutting board to achieve your desired thinness.
Next up, time to marinate the meat! Use a 1:1 mix of lime juice and olive oil, with 1-2 Tbsp of your favorite Fajita seasoning, and 1 Tbsp minced garlic. Mix well.
Then place the strips of meat into a ziploc bag, and pour the marinade until fully covered. Seal the bag and move it around to coat the meat. Let the meat marinate for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
When it’s time to cook, fire up your pit – 1 full charcoal chimney will do for a charcoal grill.
Place the meat strips on the grill, directly above the heat source. Close the lid, and let it cook. Check back regularly, and flip once in a while for even cooking.
Once ready, it’s time to assemble our tacos! Heat up the tortilla, throw on the meat, and garnish with cilantro, onion, and serrano salsa.
