    Tinamama's Note:

    Oh my gosh these are SOOOO good!! My family can't get enough of these tacos! A little bit of extra work, preparing the beef, but soooo worth it! These are the best tacos in the world, I swear! :) We usually don't use the lettuce leaves, but just do soft or crunchy taco shells...but its still really good!

      You aren't kidding, Tinamama! These tacos were a total hit! I didn't have flank steak, but I had fajita strips, so I marinated those instead of whole steaks. Other than that, I followed the recipe, including using the George Foreman grill. I had made a joke to DH, who was headed out with our toddler to play mini-golf and pick up the tomatoes for this recipe, that the recipe also calls for a GF grill. LOL Well, they surprised me when they came home with one from the store! It was PERFECT for this recipe! I literally had dinner on the table in 10 minutes! While the meat was cooking (two batches at 5 minutes each), I prepared the romaine and tomatoes. I used the romaine for a deliciously gluten-free meal and DH used flour tortillas. We both were in love with the flavor of this recipe, especially the squeeze of lime on top. That's a must! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, Tina! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2011 Pick-A-Chef. You've been adopted! http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=352458&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
