Tacos De Carne Asada

Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped plus some extra for serving
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 large white onion, sliced crosswise into ¾"-thick rings, plus 1/2 cup roughly chopped, for serving
  • Juice of 2 limes, plus lime wedges for serving
  • 1 lbs. skirt steak, cut crosswise into 4 steaks
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 jalapeño, stemmed
  • Warm tortillas, for serving

Instructions

  1. Combine the first three ingredients in a bowl.  Add steak and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes, flipping over after 15 minutes.  If you are not in a rush, you can allow steak to marinate (turning over a few times) for up to 3 hours.
  2. Heat a grill pan over high heat and grill, 5 minutes on each side (for medium/rare.)
  3. Remove meat from pan, add salt and pepper, and let rest for 5 more minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place remaining onion and jalapeño on grill, and cook, turning as needed, until charred and softened, about 10 minutes.
  5. Slice steaks into 1” strips and serve with grilled vegetables and warm tortillas.
  6. Add fresh lime juice, chopped onion and cilantro.  If you like, you can serve pico de gallo or salsa verde on the side.
  7. Serves 4
