"Makes wonderfully seasoned steak tacos, or you can just eat the steak as it is. A nice steak side would be Spanish rice or a baked potato stuffed with sour cream, guacamole, and pickled jalapeno slices."

Delicious ! the marinade made the steak fork tender. I cut my steak into strips and put it in the marinade; other than that followed the recipe. I did use salsa instead of taco sauce because it was what i had. we enjoyed these very much and will be making them again. made for the Cinco de Mayo photo forum event.
