Here we are again with another taco recipe – we all know my love (and slight obsession) with tacos. This recipe is probably my best yet though. It’s easy and the closest I have gotten to authentic street tacos that I crave on a regular basis. It is also probably the fewest ingredients I have ever used in a taco seasoning recipe – but I think that is why they are so good.. less is more here! My go to toppings are pretty basic – diced onions, crema, red and green salsas, and sometimes cheese if I’m feeling fun! The key here is to dice the steak fairly small to replicate those street taco ~vibes~. Also make sure you slice the steak before you marinate it, it’s much easier to deal with and then you can just dump it in a pan from the bowl you use to marinate it! Let me know what you think of this taco recipe and which one is your favorite.
- 1.5lbs Flank Steak
- 1 Yellow Onion, Diced
- 4 Tbsp Cumin
- 2 Tbsp Chili Powder
- 2 Tbsp Salt
- 1 Tbsp Pepper
- 3 Tbsp Adobo Pepper, Sauce Only (from the can)
- 3 Tbsp Lime Juice
- 3 Tbsp Minced Garlic
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 12 Street Taco Tortillas
- Optional Toppings: Diced Onions, Jalapenos, Cheese, Salsa, Avocado, Guacamole, Sour Cream, Lime Crema, Cilantro
- Makes: ~12 Tacos
- Prep Time: 30-60 Minutes
- Cook Time: 20 Minutes
- Total Time: 50-80 Minutes
- Slice the steak in to ~1/4th inch cubes – you want them to be fairly small to mimic authentic street tacos.
- In a large bowl, add the steak, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic, lime juice and adobo sauce. Set aside and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes – the longer the better to let the steak absorb all the flavors. I let mine marinate for about 2 hours prior to cooking. While its marinating, prep all the other ingredients and toppings you want to use.
- When the steak has been marinating and you are ready to cook, heat a large pan over medium heat and add in the olive oil.
- Once hot, add in the diced onion and cook for 3-5 minutes until they start to soften.
- Next add in the steak and cook for another 8-10 minutes until the steak is cooked through.
- Now its time for assembly! Add the steak on top of the tortillas and add your favorite toppings. *I served mine family style – so I prepped all the ingredients and let each person grab their own plate and pile on whatever toppings they wanted, makes it much more fun.*
