I made these Carne Asada tacos for Taco Tuesday last night! They really are CRAZY GOOD! I wasn’t going to post another Mexican Food recipe for a while, but I just had to post this recipe!
I used a thin and really marbled piece of ribeye steak for this recipe. Honestly, all I did was sprinkle the ribeye all over with Julio’s All Purpose Seasoning. Here’s a link for the seasoning: Julio’s All Purpose Seasoning. Then I rubbed the steak with extra virgin olive oil and placed it in a zip lock bag and marinated for a couple of hours. When I was ready to cook, I removed the steak from the refrigerator, let the steak come to room temperature before I placed them on a hot grill!
I have lot’s of taco recipes on the blog. Here’s a couple of others we love!
So simple, these tacos are really delicious. I threw the flour tortillas on the grill to heat them a little, slathered some avocado on the bottom, added the steak, then I topped the steak with finely chopped onions that I cooked in a skillet for just a minute or so, just to take the rawness away, then I finished the tacos with cotija cheese and chopped cilantro! I used Cacique Brand Cotija Cheese: http://cheese.com/cotija/.

Carne Asada Tacos
- 1 lb thin ribeye steak with good marbeling
- Julio's All Purpose Seasoning or other mexican seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, cumin, chili powder)
- extra virgin olive oil for coating the steak
- 1-2 avocados
- 4-6 flour tortillas
- cotija cheese, crumbled
- chopped cilantro
- 1/2 chopped onion, cook a little if you don't like the raw onion
- Generously coat the steak on both sides with the Julio's All purpose seasoning or other Mexican seasonings. Coat both sides with extra virgin olive oil and place in a plastic bag. Marinate for a couple of hours or even overnight. Bring to room temperature before cooking.
- Start a gas gril, charcoal grill or heat a heavy iron skillet. When your grill or skillet is ready place the steak and sear on both sides until your desired doneness. We like a medium reare to medium for carne asada. When the steak is done, remove to a plate and let it rest.
- Meanwhile, heat your flour tortillas in a heavy skillet or on your grill. Slather with the avodaco. When the steak has rested, slice very thin and you can also cut the slices into small pieces.
- Pile the steak on top of the avocado then top with the chopped onions, cotija cheese and the cilantro. Serve with lime and your favorite salsa if you like! Enjoy!
