“En el comemoration de La Semana de las Mujeres, aquí está una receta para Los Tacos Asado a la Parilla de las Mujeres. Un taco cada uno para Michelle, Brenda, Susan, Jamie, y Tina.”

10 oz. steak of your choice (I used ribeye, but it was a little too fatty)
1 avocados
1 tomato
1/2 large onion
5 tortillas
kosher salt
ground cumin
black pepper
cayenne pepper
adobo garlic seasoning (or garlic powder)
habanero hot sauce
Juice of 1 lime
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Pour the lemon and half of the lime juice on all sides of the steak.  Coat both sides of the steak well with the salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, adobo seasoning and cumin.  Let marinate for at least 1 hour.

Smash the peeled and pitted avocado in a bowl.  Chop the tomato and onion finely, and add to the avocado.  Add the remaining lime juice, some salt and pepper to taste, and a splash of hot sauce.  Put in fridge until the steak is done.

Warm up the tortillas in a skillet and wrap loosely in foil.  Put the tortillas in a 200 degree oven to keep warm.

Heat up a stovetop grill on high heat, then turn down to medium high.  Grill the steak for 8 minutes, turning once (for medium rare).  After the steak is done, transfer to cutting board and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.  Cut the steak into large cubes or strips.

“Goce mientras que refleja en la semana de las mujeres!”



What really catches my eye here is the guac…it’s lurking back there like a Christ Child in a Manger.

GIKKU.COM recommends flank steak for tacos, not ribeye.

The rareness is amazing though.

Ah yes, I will try flank steak next time. I’m still picking the gristle out of my molars.
