Ingredients (serves 6 taco recipe lovers):

1.5 lbs of boneless beef top sirloin, cut up into little thin bite-size slices for the tacos
12 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1/4 large onion, chopped up
1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped up
either radishes or cucumbers, sliced up
1 lime
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
4 tbsp canola oil

plus…
guacamole
salsa Mexicana (AKA “pico de gallo”)
saldsa roja or salsa verde, raw or rosted sauce, however you prefer

Directions for making these carne asada tacos:

Place your sliced meat into a short, shallow bowl, and season it with salt and some black pepper.

Squeeze lime juice all over the meat, and turn the meat over and over again until it’s evenly coated with the juice. Then cover, and refrigerate the meat for 30 minutes.

Heat 1 tbsp of canola oil in a large skillet on high heat. Stir in 1/3 of the beef, and saute it for one minute.

Transfer the meat to a serving dish, then repeat the process with your remaining beef.

To serve these ground beef tacos, place two tortillas on top of each other. Add desired amount of meat, spoon over some pico de gallo, guacamole, and whichever other salsa you chose to make (roja or verde). Top each taco with onion and cilantro. Garnish with a wedge of lemon, to later be squeezed over taco before eating, and slices of either radishes or cucumbers.
