Steak Soft Tacos
After numerous tests, we found the secret to making authentic-tasting soft tacos indoors.
Why This Recipe Works
Our Steak Soft Tacos recipe uses rich-tasting, economical flank steak. We sliced it thin against the grain, or else the fibrous meat was very tough. And cooking it any more than rare or medium rare toughened the meat and made it lose its beefy flavor. Our recipe calls for slicing the steaks before cooking and essentially “stir-frying" the meat. We found it difficult to sear a full steak indoors, but it’s easy to quickly cook the sliced steak in a couple of batches in a large skillet with smoking-hot oil in it.
