Aaaahhh mexican food. It is one of my favorite foods. These steak tacos are quick and easy- and they don’t heat up the house!! Just grill up some steak and add your favorite toppings. I love easy, especially when you have to take care of a newborn. Yep we had our little girl at the end of May and she is so precious. So I don’t want to spend a lot of time slaving in the kitchen when I could be holding my little one. They get so big so fast. I like to top these tacos with pico de gallo and avocado but feel free to use whatever toppings you like best. Add a side of rice and you have it made.
- 2 lbs beef steak of choice
- 1/2 c. lime juice
- 2 TBSP oil
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tsp salt
- Flour tortillas
- Avocado slices
- pico de gallo
Trim any fat from the steaks and place in a large ziploc bag.
For the marinade combine lime juice, oil, chili powder, garlic and salt. Pour over meat and seal. Let marinade for at least 4 hours in the refreigerator.
Preheat grill and grill steaks over medium to medium high heat until desired doneness. I cooked ours about 4 minutes total. This will vary greatly depending on the cut and thickness and how well done you want your steak.
Remove from grill and let rest for a couple of minutes.
Slice into 1/2' wide strips.
Fill tortilla with meat, avocado and pico de gallo.
Makes about 12 tacos
