Carne Asada Tacos

Like I've said before, Albany doesn't have a lot of mexican restaurants to choose from.  With Cinco de Mayo being last Saturday, I was craving tacos and guacamole.  I fulfilled my taco craving but I'm still waiting for my avocados to soften to make the guac.  I found this recipe on allrecipes.  The marinade is full of flavor and spices.  It satisfied my craving for good tacos and made my husband happy.  He loves steak.  Muy bueno!

Carne Asada

  • 3 pounds flank steak
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
Place steak in a shallow dish or ziploc bag.  Mix all ingredients then pour over steak.  Marinate for 4 to 8 hours or overnight.  Cook on grill or grill pan.  Cut into thin slices.  Serve as tacos with pico de gallo, cheese and guacamole.
