Carne Asada Tacos

Carne asada is the thinly sliced, grilled beef served so often in tacos and burritos. It is also commonly served as is, with rice and beans on the side. Although almost any cut of beef can be butterflied into thin sheets for the carne asada, typically it is made from flank steak or skirt steak. It can be grilled just with salt and pepper for flavorings, or it can be marinated.


  • 1 12 -ounce jar sliced pickled jalapenos, drained
  • 1 1 3/4 -pound flank steak,trimmed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges, for serving
  • 2 -4 tablespoons Salsa (homemade or store-bought)
  • Corn tortillas (homemade or store-bought)



Make tortillas, if you're using homemade tortillas

Marinate the steak: Spread the jalapenos in a baking dish and press the steak on top. Cover and set aside at room temperature for about 1 hour.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Brush the jalapenos off the steak, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes, then slice.

Assemble the tacos: For each taco, stack 2 tortillas and lay a few pieces of steak in the middle. Top with onion, salsa and cilantro. Top with lime wedges.
