Jalapeño Steak Tacos

Hey Friends Welcome to Tasty Thursday!! I have made this meal twice now because we LOVE it so much! And I must say that I am pretty excited to share with you my SECRET!!!!!!!

Let’s start with the marinade:


Flank Steak Marinade

Flank Steak Marinade by nsavage on Polyvore

My secret IS……drumroll……………. I use the microplane and microplane one entire jalapeño! It creates this paste and makes the flavor so intense! Make sure you get it all off the microplane!
Then microplane 1 large garlic clove as well!!!!

I know the marinade looks weird but it OH SO GOOD! 

Here are the rest of the ingredients 

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/4 cup Lime juice

Salt and Pepper

1 teaspoon Cumin

Mix really well……………

Put your flank steak into a ziplock bag and add the marinade! Let this refrigerate at least 1 hour but could be as long as 4 hours!!!!!

Next up I think all tacos need something crunchy and I have been in luck…. my garden is full of Radishes! Here is my recipe for “Faux Pickled Radishes”
Slice up 1-2 radishes depending on how many people who are feeding!
Then in a jar mix 3 Parts Apple Cider Vinegar to 1 Part Water
Then add Salt and Pepper and 1 teaspoon sugar

Mix up and refrigerate for 1 hour!

Grill your flank steak for about 5 minutes on each side and then let the steak rest for a other 5 minutes on the counter before you slice it!
Here is our Tacos…. I added Pico, Cojita Cheese, Homemade Guac and sour cream! I swear these are SOO YUMMY!

Enjoy guys and have a margarita for me!
