Carne asada tacos fresh!
Today being a holiday I decided to try out a different approach to cooking Carne Asada Baja style. Instead of using the grill I wanted to cook in the comfort of my own kitchen. Here is my take on preparing and enjoying tacos Baja style without leaving your home.
1.5 lbs of Beef cut into stir-fry pieces -I buy our at Vons it cost me $6.58 and it freshly packed every morning.
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder -can be substituted with garlic salt-
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 key limes juiced without seeds
1.- Place all the beef strips or pieces in a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients, mixing until all the juices are absorbed and spices are blended into each piece.
2.- Use a non-stick skillet sprayed with cooking spray such as PAM or the one of your choice and cook meat in it on medium heat for about 8 - 10 minutes, "stir-frying" occasionally.
3.- While the meat is cooking you can prepare the sides that will go with it and heat your tortillas!
...So next time you feel like eating some tacos but don't want to leave your home, just grab this recipe and enjoy! You can even have the kids help with the Guacamole and don't forget the Pico de Gallo Salsa
