Steak Taco with Homemade Corn Tortilla

The other night we made carne asada tacos with homemade corn tortillas.  It was quick, simple and worthy of any dinner party!

Carne asada literally means “roasted meat” in Spanish and is typically a flank steak or skirt steak that is thinly cut and roasted or grilled.  You can marinate it or simply salt and pepper the meat.  It is great for all sorts of Mexican dishes, including burritos and tacos, and is also commonly served on its own with a side of rice and beans.

These steak tacos were the closest that we have come to replicating the tacos from one of our favorite restaurants.  The corn tortillas were tender and pliable and the steak was tender and juicy.  Topped with chopped onion, cilantro and a drizzle of salsa verde, we didn’t even miss the cheese!
