Need-A-Tropical-Vacation Tequila-Lime Skirt Steak Tacos

Course: 
Sun soaked beaches, crystal blue water, drinks with umbrellas and fresh coconuts, nothing to do...sounds pretty good right now to me now that we've just finished shoveling out of the zillionth snow storm. But the cows keep us close to home, and honestly most of the time I don't really mind, but when winter gets me down or I'm tired of rutabagas, Tacos always pick me up! Its also a great way to use up those green cabbages that are taking up space in your fridge. Cabbage is amazing on your tacos, and with a squeeze of lime, turns your winter vegetable fatigue into fiesta! Apologies to the vegetarians, but you can leave the steak out and use beans, sauteed roots,fried eggs, or tofu. Now, put some salsa on the radio and lets get this staycation started!
Ingredients: 
  • 1 Provider Farm grassfed beef skirt, flap or flank steak
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 c. tequila
  • 2 tbs. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • soft corn tortillas

 

Taco toppings

  • finely sliced onion
  • shredded cabbage
  • 1 chopped watermelon radish
  • shredded cheese
  • avocado slices
  • lime quarters
  • chopped ciilantro
  • your favorite salsa

 

Directions: 

Make a garlic paste, by slicing garlic, sprinkling with salt and then smashing garlic with side of knife. Rub the meat with the garlic and lay it in a shallow dish. Pour tequila and lime juice over meat and refrigerate for 3-12 hours.
Drain marinade and turn on your grill to high, lightly oil grill. Grill on high and cook for 2.5-3 minutes, then flip and grill for another 2.5-3 minutes. Removed steak from grill and slice thinly against the grain of the steak. Serve with tortillas and all the toppings.
