I actually added all the ingredients with the steak beforehand as a marinade and let it sit for a while. This actually made it quite tender and flavorful. The only thing I would add would be a few green onions on top to add a little kick. My whole family loved it!
Tacos al Carbon
Although "al carbon" means to cook over charcoal, bring this dish indoors by sautéing steak, onions, and peppers to make a one-pan taco filling reminiscent of fajitas. The piquant flavors of lime and garlic in the dressing enhance almost anything, so feel free to substitute chicken, lamb, or shrimp for the beef.
