Ingredients

  • 8 handmade tortillas recipe coming soon
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 lbs flank steak tenderized (you know, the cheap one)
  • 1 cup Allegro marinade
  • 1 cup beer cheapest they make--but this is optional
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup Mexican Street Corn cut from ear
  • 12-16 cherry tomatoes fresh from the farmer's market is best this time of year
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 fresh lime

Instructions

  1. Slice steak into thin strips (about an inch to a half-inch wide) and no longer than your pinky. Unless you have mini-pinkies, in that case no longer than your index finger. Heh.
  2. Mix marinade, beer, 1/3 of the salsa and 1/2 of the juice from the lime together in a sauce pan.
  3. Add steak and turn-on over low heat.
  4. Allow to simmer for about an hour, or until meat is cooked thoroughly, plus 30 mintues.
  5. Add rosemary and corn.
  6. Cover and allow to cook while you complete the next steps.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Place oil in a griddle or pan (whatever you would use for making pancakes) over medium to high heat.
  9. Once the oil is super-hot, put the tortillas in the oil for about 30-45 seconds on each side, folding it halfway through when you turn it for the second side to cook. They shall henceforth be known as taco shells. Heh.
  10. Place taco shells in the oven in the taco holder, if it's metal--if not, make a taco holder out of aluminum foil.
  11. Bake in the oven for about 8 mintues or until shell is crispy (which really shouldn't take long).
  12. Remove from the oven and stuff full of steak, corn and rosemary.
  13. Take a moment to slice your tomatoes how you like them.
  14. Top the taco with tomato slices.
  15. Enjoy my food-truck-foodie-friend. Enjoy, Heh.
