Slow Cooker Carne Asada Street Tacos
Carne Asada is a flavorful and juicy Mexican dish of grilled beef or pork. When I think of this dish I always think of the food trucks in LA, where they cook up amazing carne asada. Today I’m going to show you how you can easily make this dish at home with a crock pot.
Carne asada is a popular dish in Mexico and many Mexican-American restaurants around the country. The recipe originates in the Mexican states of Baja California and Sonora, and consists of grilled thin slabs of beef (usually beef chuck) marinated in a mixture of lime juice, spices, and salt. The thin beef slices are then sliced into strips, which are fried in a cast-iron pan. The slow-cooked meat is then sliced into strips and placed on a tortilla, topped with a tomato and onion salad. The beef is then topped with pico de gallo and guacamole.
