Carne Asada Tacos are one of my favorite things to make and eat. I make them at least once a month and sometimes many more than that. Today I started by making a fresh batch of Pico de Gallo. Recipe is here: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/31022-pico-de-gallo-my-way/?tab=comments#comment-414993 I then took a package of marinated skirt steak and cut it into manageable sizes and placed it on the kamado. I cooked it approximately 6 minutes per side until it developed a little char on it and here is the result. I cut these up into taco size pieces across the grain and made up 3 tacos served with Negra Modelo, some sliced radish and a grilled yellow pepper. Muy Delicioso!
I was going to make tacos today even before I knew of the NFL Kickoff Speed Challenge so I took some pics with my phone camera. (Just like I would if I was tailgating) I buy this pre-marinated skirt steak at Costco and usually have 2 or 3 in the freezer at any one time. It makes up some delicious taco fixings and can be done from start to finish in under 30 minutes. (I know this is so as I have timed myself. (Assuming you’ve made up the Pico de Gallo in advance) See link: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/28310-carne-asada-tacos-in-under-30-minutes/#comment-379507) I had made up a batch of Pico de Gallo. (See link for recipe: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/31022-pico-de-gallo-my-way/) I lit up the kamado and unpackaged the skirt steak. Sometimes they come in two pieces and other time them come out as one long piece like this. I cut it up so that it would fit on the half that I had a fire going on. Flipped. I warmed up some corn tortillas. Once it was done I cut it up into smaller size pieces so I could cut it against the grain. (Important to do with skirt steak) Brought it inside and cut it into taco size pieaces. And plated up one of my favorite meals. Delicious! Thanks for looking.
Today was another good cook. Fajitas are possibly my favorite TexMex food ever. Well as I've stated on many other threads: Any time you wrap meat and veg in a tortilla, you've got a winner!! Mr Grill, of course, was observing every step of the way. Started with a piece of beef flank and a couple of chicken breasts - each in a marinade of tequila, lime juice, cilantro, and fajita seasoning. While that was marinading, I halved and cored some tomatoes and put them and a couple of jalpenos on the grill: Only 5 mins to get a nice char on the skins and then I chopped everything up - added onion, garlic, cilantro, lime, and made a smoky, spicy salsa. Then I heated up the griddle until it was smoking hot and threw on some red pepper and onion. While those were getting nice and brown, Mr. Grill and I enjoyed a cold beer and some blue corn chips and salsa on the patio. The grilled peppers and onions smelled SO good when they were done. Then it was time for the meat! A 3 minute sear on one side, then a flip, and pour on a little of the marinade. Mr. Grill took a few minutes to wander through the garden while the meat was cooking. The chicken was next and took only a few mins per side as well: More to come ....
