Hi everyone! Today I want to show how easy it is to make carne asada tacos! This is Jeff’s favorite meal I make. Sometimes we substitute the steak for chicken or pork, but the rest of the ingredients remain the same. I buy 80% of my groceries at Trader Joe’s, the rest from Costco. I’m lucky enough to have both just a couple miles away from my home, so I take full advantage. This dinner takes a total of 15 mins start to finish, it’s simple and incredibly delicious.
1 package Corn & Wheat Tortilla’s (try them!)
1 package of pre-marinated Carne Asada
1 container of Mango Slaw (if your TJ’s doesn’t carry this, I substitute with shredded lettuce, pico and the Cilantro dressing from THIS post. I could drink it. Actually, I have..)
Pre-head your grill or grill pan on high. I’ve used stovetop grill pan for years and LOVE it! Once heated add your carne asada. Now this meat is sliced thin, so it cooks quick! I like mine slightly pink so -4-5 mins per side is all. While the meat is cooking on the front half, add a couple tortillas to the back and heat, about 45 secs per side. Once the meat it done remove and let rest on a cutting board, about 5 mins. Slice nice and thin and add to your tortilla and top with the rest of your ingredients. It’s that simple! Your husband will think it took hours to prepare. Let him think that;) Look how cute this taco stand is, I love mine!
