Faking a Fabulous Steak Taco

Steak tacos are one of my favorite ways to serve a crowd!  Especially at a tailgate or a backyard barbecue.  Using a cut like a Certified Angus Flat Iron, Tri Tip Roast, or Flank Steak means you can serve a crowd fairly inexpensively.  

Also, I am currently obsessed with Certified Angus Beef.  It's shocking how much better it is than 'standard' beef.  The meat is tender, juicy, and reliable - even on cuts {like a tri tip roast} that I would usually say are stringy and weird.  And they aren't paying me to say that.  I'm just obsessed.  

A really simple marinade works perfectly for a tailgate too.  I throw everything into a ziploc bag with the meat - slosh it around in the marinade - then take it to the tailgate in the cooler.  Cooking the meat in the parking lot and slicing it to serve at the tailgate makes these tacos the absolute best.  That, and a good beer.

And don't forget
