Arrachera (Mexican Skirt Steak for Tacos)
This is a recipe for traditional arrachera, which is a thinly sliced skirt steak with seasonings. The longer it marinates, the more robust the flavor will be. Heat tortillas on the grill or in the microwave. Serve the arrachera with warmed tortillas and your favorite taco toppings, such as onion, cilantro, hot sauce, lettuce, cheese, etc.
Recipe Summary test
When buying the arrachera at a Mexican grocery store, ask for it to be run through the machine. It tenderizes the meat. You may have to try the recipe a few times to get the amount of seasoning right for your family. Some of my family members also add a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder (or 1 clove minced garlic) and fresh cilantro to the marinade.
