Low Carb Street Tacos

Best thing to do when making street tacos is to make your own marinade! That way you know exactly what is in it and how tasty it’s going to be. For this recipe, I used carne picada meat, almost 2lbs. It’s nice because it’s already in small pieces and the marinade coats all of itContinue reading “Low Carb Street Tacos”

When we lived in SoCal, we could go to our local grocery stores and buy pre-marinated Carne Asada steaks. There would normally be steaks that are marinated in a citrus or ranchero flavored marinade.
