Default Whats your go to cut for beef taco’s?

Hey all, doing my wife’s 30th bday next weekend which includes a taco bar. I was going to go with filet until I had 66 people coming. With that said can I ask what your favorite cut is? I was hoping for something I could find at a nearby wegmans or restaurant depot.

Thanks everyone!!

Skirt
Flank
Flap
Cheeks
Tongue
or the cheapest would be get some pork butt and do carnitas.

Since you were looking at filet it makes me think you wanted to be a little fancy. I'd go with tri tip for steak tacos.

Smoked chuck, cubed or pulled. After that smoked brisket. If you want a steak taco, hanger steaks, marinated and grilled.

Depends on the style of beef taco you're going for.

Carne Asada? - Skirt
Barbacoa? - Chuck or Cheeks

Looking for quick/easy cook on a flat top? - Carne para Tacos marinated like Carne Asada - already chopped up... just cook and serve.

Just some options to consider... Best of luck!

That's why I also like the idea of the Carne para Tacos marinated a la Carne Asada (if you want some (more) control over the flavors). Plus, either in a big-arsed skillet or on a flat top, that'll cook up quickly and it's easy to serve.

Default Sirloin!

Just get some sirloins & grilll em up. Flattop would work too. Fill little corn tortillas with diced meat & put fixings on the side. We usually have cabbage slaw, grilled onion & raw diced onion, diced serrano, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, diced radishes, cotija cheese, hot sauce, pico, etc.

I usually just cook a flat iron, grilled to medium or medium rare, then cube and serve! Chicken thighs too!

Looking forward to next weekend to see how your own cook turns out!

Sounds like you've got quite the evening planned.

Enjoy!
