I admit, these aren’t particularly authentic, but they’re so tasty that we’re thinking about having them for the third time in the space of a week.
Combine in a large plastic bag the following to make a marinade:
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon grated lime rind *
2 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire
1 can low-salt beef broth
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Take a one-pound flank steak. Trim the fat and score a diamond pattern on both sides (my favorite part). Put it in the marinade along with one sweet onion cut into wedges. Put the bag in the fridge for at least four hours (better overnight).
On a grill, cook the onions and steak for eight minutes each side. Slice the meat diagonally into strips and serve on tortillas with the onions and your choices of salsa, sour cream, cheese, and avocado.
* I often give up on this part, because after scraping an entire lime on my grater, I couldn’t get the rind off the metal.
I often find it hard to find good tasty marinades that don’t involve wine or alcohol, because KC doesn’t care for the taste. My mother gave me one that uses bourbon that’s delicious, but he doesn’t like it. This one, though, is quite tasty without any spirits.
