Grilled Steak Tacos

Taco Tuesday is my favorite non-weekend day! I just love tacos.  Any kind of tacos, any toppings, any meat, any tortilla it fine. I would eat tacos every single day for every meal if I had a choice.  Unfortunately, I don’t do that. However, I do eat tacos probably more then the average person. I wonder how many tacos I’ve eaten over my life time.  Probably too many!

I’ve been trying to be healthy and lose weight so when I have that craving for tacos the best thing for me to do is make it at home. I then have complete control over what I put into the dish and I make it as guilt free as possible.

My favorite tacos, are steak! No question about it. Check out my steak street tacos recipe below.

1/2- Cup Oil
2T- Red Wine Vinegar
4- Garlic Cloves, grated
3- bunches fresh cilantro, chopped
2 limes, juiced
1/2 T garlic powder

6 street taco tortilla, corn or flour

Directions: Whisk together all marinade ingredients then add in flat iron steak. Marinade for at least 2 hours, turning a few times.

Remove from marinade and let excess oil drip off. Grill the steak over medium heat until cooked to your liking. Cut steak into pieces.  Add the meat to heated tortillas and add your preferred toppings.  I use chopped onion, cilantro and queso fresco and sometimes sour cream or guacamole.

These will be your go to steak tacos recipe. It’s much healthier then take out and taste just as good.

Take a look at the pictures below.
