Tequila Lime Steak Tacos

Tequila Lime Steak Tacos4

Last week, these yummy steak were on the cheap at Kroger so I snatched them up. These tacos were yum de la yum! They had such a great zesty  flavor. Topped with cilantro, jalapeños, cheese and sour cream? Done and done. I imagine that avocados would be pretty excellent on these too. I’m just not the biggest fan of avocados (I know, I know. I think it’s a character flaw of mine).Tequila Lime Steak TacosTequila Lime Steak Tacos1 Tequila Lime Steak Tacos2 Tequila Lime Steak Tacos5 Tequila Lime Steak Tacos3Signature

  • 1 quarter of an onion
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 4 oz. tequila

What to do:

  1. Place first 9 ingredients ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Place steaks in casserole dish or ziplock bag. Cover with marinade and refrigerate for 4-6  hours.
  2. Remove from fridge about one hour prior to cooking. Heat your grill pan over high heat and cook 4-5 minutes each side until reached desired doneness (I like mine a little red). If it’s nice out, cook on the grill outside!
