Grilled Steak Tacos with Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce
Serves 10
One of the best things about growing up in Southern California, is its proximity to Mexico. Being able to drive over the border or hop on a quick flight gave us the opportunity to visit many different areas and experience regional Mexican cuisine. My personal obsession when visiting Mexico was always the same- to find the perfect taco. After a day or two of serious reconnaissance work, it becomes clear which taco stands are the busiest, have the longest lines and draw the most locals. There, tacos cost less than a dollar, tortillas and hot sauces are made from scratch, ingredients are locally grown, and ripened on the tree and vine. This is why they taste so good.

  2. Place steak and onions in a gallon size Ziploc bag and pour marinade over, sealing and turning several times to coat well.
