street tacos

13 Jun

Our AC went out. If you happen to live anywhere near us (south Texas), you know that AC is imperative to survival during our blistering summers. So here I sit, in my bathing suit, chugging ice water and sitting directly under the ceiling fan…waiting for help to arrive! Seriously, our house feels like the fires of Hell.

Needless to say, cooking last night was absolutely miserable. I vaguely remember telling Charlie that I wanted to kill him with my bare, sweaty hands. Luckily, these tacos came out amazing and were totally worth it!

    Street Tacos

1.5 lbs of skirt or flank steak
1 cup of orange juice
1/2 Tbs minced garlic
Adobo seasoning
sea salt and pepper
tortillas (most people like corn, I personally despise corn tortillas. I used flour)

Topping:
chopped onion
chopped cilantro
crumbled queso fresca
sliced avocado
fresh squeezed lime juice

First let me say, the traditional way to make these is on the grill. However, it’s the NBA finals, and we don’t have an outdoor TV…so…

Cut the steak into thin strips. Place it in a bowl or a ziploc bag and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and Adobo. Pour the orange juice over the steak and add the garlic. Cover and place in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Once you’re ready to start cookin’, heat up a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the steak strips in the skillet and cook til brown.

Warm up the tortillas and fill them with steak. Top with chopped onion, cilantro, and crumbled queso fresca. Squeeze lime slices over the top and you’re done! Enjoy!
