  1. Place sliced meat into a shallow bowl, and season with salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Squeeze the lime juice over the meat, and turn until evenly coated. Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine tomatillo and jalapeno. Puree for 15 to 20 seconds, or until thick. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Carefully pour in tomatillo mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Stir in beef broth. Reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until mixture coats a spoon. Transfer mixture to a serving dish.
  3. Heat tablespoon oil in a large skillet over high heat. Stir in 1/3 of the beef, and saute for 1 minute. Transfer to serving dish. Repeat with remaining beef. Meanwhile, heat tortillas in the oven or microwave, according to package instructions.
  4. To serve, place two tortillas on top of each other. Add desired amount of meat, spoon over some tomatillo mixture. Top with onions, tomatoes, avocado and cilantro. Garnish with a wedge of lemon, to be squeezed over taco before eating.

this is a very good recipe for carne asada tacos! I used flank steak, seasoned with salt, black pepper and 2 limes. Omitted the crushed red pepper flakes. Marinated for 7 hours. I did not buy a ...

Absolutely tasty! Prefer a bit more heat but as recipe states: salt, pepper and crushed red pepper to taste. Next time a little more crushed red pepper should do it for me. If you're searchin...

Pretty good - Steam the corn tortillas vs oven/toaster (flour tortillas would probably work OK too). Also salsa needs some salt. Food prep time was very reasonable. Very attractive dish with ...

The tomatilla sauce was a lot of work for the end result. Also, canned tomatillas were very difficult to find...I used fresh instead. This was so-so - not great, but not bad.
