Tacos de Carne Marinada (Sirloin Steak Tacos)

Yields: units


  • pounds sirloin steak sliced thinly
  • 2 garlic cloves smashed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon powdered ancho chile
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tablespoon annatto powder
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 corn tortillas for tacos
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce finely chopped
  • Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 3 tomatoes chopped into cubes
  • cilantro leaves chopped


  1. Add the seasonings to the meat, including the 2 tablespoons of oil. Mix well, cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 to 3 hours; next day would be even better.
  2. Remove from the fridge and leave at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a large skillet; pour the remaining oil and cook 3-4 minutes each side.
  4. In another pan, heat the tortillas.
  5. In each tortilla, place a bit of lettuce, a spoonful of meat, cream, tomato and cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
