When not in Mexico I use this recipe to make my own Arrachera Beef, a marinaded flank steak. The beef is perfect for tacos, fajitas or chili. Please note that cooking time is actually the minimum time needed to marinade.

Delicioso! Every year we go to Mexico for vacation. Arrachera is one of our favorite meals, but until now I haven't been able to duplicate it at home. This recipe made a tender flank steak full of flavor! Next time I'd like to get the outside charred a bit more, but no matter what, this recipe is a keeper! Mucho gracias!
