Grilled Carne Asada Tacos with Boursin Cheese (PureWow)

Grilled Carne Asada Tacos

Servings: 4 servings




1½ pounds flank steak


½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Juice of 2 limes

4 garlic cloves

½ bunch cilantro

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Vegetable oil, for grilling

8 corn tortillas

Fresh chopped cilantro, as needed

1 red onion, finely diced

2 limes, quartered

Boursin® Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese, for serving


1. Make the Marinade: Place the steak in a large freezer bag and set aside. In a blender, combine the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, garlic, cilantro and salt and pepper, to taste, and blend until mostly smooth. Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade and pour the remaining marinade into the bag with the steak. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.

2. Cook the Steak: Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the grill with vegetable oil, then place the steak on the grill and cook until medium-rare, about 6 minutes per side. (For ideal doneness, use a thermometer and cook to 130 to 140°F for medium.) Remove from the heat, cover and rest for 10 minutes.

3. While the steak is resting, wrap the tortillas in foil and heat on the grill until warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

4. Thinly slice against the grain. To assemble the tacos, lay a couple of slices of steak onto a warm corn tortilla and drizzle with the reserved marinade. Top with the red onion, cilantro, a squeeze of lime and Boursin Cheese.
