Steak Tacos made with plenty of lime juice and a quick homemade spice rub can be grilled, broiled, or cooked in a skillet for an easy and healthy meal that is ready in less than thirty minutes.
These healthy Steak Tacos taste better than your local taco shop but are made with good for you ingredients that most people already have in their pantry. By using a chili and cumin spice rub along with plenty of lime juice, the steak comes out tender and packed with flavor. Consider serving it with these healthy crockpot pinto beans or Mexican corn.
Steak tacos are always the answer. Whenever I am staring at the fridge at 5 PM and don't know what to make for dinner or planning for a last minute get together, tacos are my number one option. They cook quickly, are almost universally loved, and are affordable to cook for big crowds. Plus if you take the time to put together a wide array of toppings, it feels like something you spent lots of time planning. I always put out two to three different kinds of salsa along with chopped cilantro, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, shredded cheese, sour cream, and plenty of avocado. It makes for an impressive presentation without hardly any work.
For this steak taco recipe, there are three options when it comes to cooking method. You can grill, broil, or cook them stove-top.

You can use virtually any kind of steak for tacos but certain cuts are better for certain types of tacos. For carne asada or grilled steak tacos, it is best to use flank steak, skirt steak, or sirloin steak. Flap meat also works and can be very affordable. In Mexican markets, you will usually see steak labeled carne asada or palomilla. The carne adasa may come pre-marinated. For slow cooker style beef tacos, you can use a round roast, brisket, eye round, or a chuck steak.
Like I mentioned earlier, when you make tacos for a crowd, the taco bar is what will take it to the next level. It also gives you the allusion of having spent hours planning when you can actually pick up virtually everything from the grocery store and just put it into pretty bowls and dishes. If you want to add some homemade touches, I recommend making the guacamole and a homemade salsa. This creamy avocado salsa is amazing and always gets rave reviews.
