Default Tacos de Carne Asada

We had a couple ole pieces of ribeyes and some brisket leftover and decided to have tacos de carne asada. The brisket is already diced up in the plate and the steak is on the cutting board. I canít tell you how many times weíve had these same four pans with the exact same stuff in them on the stove but itís bound to be quite a few. The thought did come to mind last night while getting this on the table about why we never do this on the weekend and really take our time and get all the many wonderful condiments included in the meal and we realized itís because itís always done from leftover meat which should make for a quick meal. In our case itís never a quick meal though because I just canít have a great taco and not at least have some rice and beans to go with it. I would however like to do this some weekend and add a nice salad with quacomole, put some maters, peas, carrots in the rice, make some good homemade sauce for our tacos, and make the tortillas from a sack of masa. The boss just added a few tbs of oil and browned the meat and use a few squeezes of lime to deglaze the pan. Itís a great meal and the brisket did still have a tad bit of the smoked brisket taste left to it but not enough to change the true Mexican flavor of asada. I know most like to finish there meat for tacos, burritos, and fajitas on the grill med rare and such and itís sure nuff good that way but it ainít got the true Mexican flavor unless itís chopped and grilled till itís as done as you see here. Iíve had many Mexican meals at some of the best local places here and not one of em ever consisted of meat that was not totally done and yet itís always tender and very tasty.

Good looking grub there dude. Tacos de Asada are great, but I also recommend tripas, cabeza, lengua, buchi, and al pastor. Great stuff.
