I've made beef carnitas for tacos before and it's divine. BUT it is an all-day, on the stove affair and requires a bit of forethought. These steak tacos, on the other hand, are pretty quick to whip up. The recipe is from Cook's Country. Flank steak is "marinated" with garlic, jalapenos, green onions, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Then it is very thinly sliced and pan-fried for about a minute. The steak is removed from the pan and some tomato sauce is thrown in with a squeeze of lime juice. This helps soak up all the browned juices and bits as you stir it around. Once the "sauce" thickens up the steak is thrown back in to be glazed. Ta-da! These steak tacos are so yummy! I served them with tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. My son said, "I could eat this every day!" Now THAT'S a recommendation for you.
