Steak Tacos

  • 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.

    Ingredients
    • 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

    Instructions
    1. Trim any fat from the steaks and place in a large ziploc bag.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Remove from grill and let rest for a couple of minutes.
    5. Slice into 1/2' wide strips.
    6. Fill tortilla with meat, avocado and pico de gallo.
    7. Makes about 12 tacos
