Carne Asada Street Tacos

December 12, 2022

These tacos may be basic, but they are delicious and so easy to make. Pair them with your favorite sides and a classic margarita and you have the perfect Taco Tuesday meal. 


  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 lbs. flank steak
  • 1 diced large white onion, divided
  • 3 fresh limes
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 16 mini corn tortillas
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste 


  1. Cut the steak into bite-size pieces.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the steak and sauté until the meat starts to brown.
  4. Add half of the onion to the skillet and sauté with the beef until the onions start to soften and become translucent. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Squeeze the juice of two limes over the steak and onions. Continue cooking until the steak is cooked through and the onions have browned. 
  6. Using your stovetop, place each tortilla directly on the heat source until the tortillas become warm and pliable, about 10 secs. Stack tortillas and cover with a paper towel to keep warm.
  7. To prepare a taco, take two tortillas, and spoon 2 tablespoons of the steak/onion mixture into the center. Top steak with a sprinkling of diced raw onion, fresh chopped cilantro, and a lime wedge for extra lime juice.
