Street Tacos

Are you looking for something new and delicious for dinner tonight? Have you thought about Street Tacos?


These where sooooo good that we had them last night for dinner and this morning for breakfast. Yes, I ate them for breakfast while my kids looked at me oddly.


I started out by marinating two of our Wagyu Top Sirloin steaks in some vinegar, orange juice, cumin, chili powder, oregano, garlic powered, and salt and pepper. I suggest all day but if you are in a pinch an hour works great too. I then cut them against the grain into bite sized pieces and returned to the marinade, while I prepped the rest. I chopped up fresh cilantro, quartered a half of a lime , and thinly sliced avocado. I then started to heat my pan for the meat and started heating the street sized white corn tortillas, with a little olive oil. I got them at my local grocery store so imagine if they are there you can find them in any major grocery store. I then started to cook our meat. I cooked Jordan’s meat to a medium rare and mine to medium and salted to taste. I added a few pieces of meat on top of the warm tortilla and topped with a gracious amount of cilantro, a small piece of avocado, squeezed lime juices all over and stuffed my face until all the wrong in the world went away! Some people like to add queso fresco, tomatoes, or raddish to their tacos but I thought they where just perfect the way there where. I guess the reason that led me to eat them two meals in a row.
