What does Asada mean?

  • Carne asada (literally “flesh/meat/beef” “roast/broiled/grilled”) is a Latin American dish of grilled and sliced beef, usually skirt, flank or flap steak. It is usually cooked with a certain amount of searing to impart a charred flavor.

The beauty of tacos is that the possibilities are endless.  You can go as complex or as simple as you like.  This recipe is super simple but still manages to be a break from the norm.  It starts with my Grilled Carne Asada.  Such great flavor and such tender meat.  In my mind it’s such a huge step above typical ground beef tacos yet it’s just about as easy to make.

Then of course we layer on my delicious Mexican Street Corn Salad.  This can be made up a day in advance if you like which will make your dinner time prep even that much quicker!  I mean, as long as it lasts a day.  In my house I’d probably sneak a bite here and there until it was totally gone.
