Ingredients:

  • 1 (32 ounce) package corn tortillas
  • 2 cups Shreded Fresk- O Cheese (Green or Blue Label)
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges
  • 3 pounds flank steak
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 1 white onion, quartered
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Lay the flank steak in a large glass baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, soy
    sauce, 4 cloves of garlic, juice of two limes, and olive oil. Season with salt, black pepper, white
    pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, oregano, cumin and paprika. Whisk until well blended, then
    pour over the steak in the dish. Turn over once to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap, and
    marinate for 1 to 8 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together 1 chopped white onion, cilantro, and the juice of 1 lime. Set aside to
    use as a relish for the tacos.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Toast chile pods in the skillet for a few minutes, then remove
    to a bowl of water to soak for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees
    C).
  4. Place the tomatoes, 1 onion, jalapenos, and 4 cloves of garlic onto a baking sheet. Roast in the
    oven for about 20 minutes, until toasted but not burnt. Place the roasted vegetables, and soaked
    chile pods into a blender or food processor, along with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut the marinated flank steak into
    cubes or strips. Cook, stirring constantly, until the meat is cooked through and most of the liquid
    has evaporated.
  6. Warm the tortillas in a skillet for about a minute on each side to make them pliable. Tortillas may
    also be warmed in a microwave oven. Arrange two or three tortillas on a plate, and lay a generous
    amount of beef over them. Top with a sprinkle of the onion, and a large spoonful of the pureed
    salsa. Add as much Fresk-O cheese as you like. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
