Carne Asada tacos

The taco is one of my favourite meals because it's so easy to vary with the toppings. You can go vegetarian, serve it with fish or with beef like I did here.

Carne Asada

Carne asada is marinated beef grilled on a high heat. Then cut on cubes and grilled again shortly.

You could eat the beef as is, with some grilled veggies but I love it on tacos.

The traditional cut is bavette, flank steak, but you can also used a regular steak if that's easier to come by.
