      This IS really great. I loved the onions and I can't wait to try them as a side to something else. Even the non-onion-eater ate MY onions. I used fresh cilantro and oregano, mexican chili pods and queso fresco. I used flank steak and marinated for 6 hours. The flavor was much so that I felt the other ingredients sort of over powered the delicious meat. I ate some of the meat by itself so I could really enjoy the flavor. Delicious recipe! This can be a taco recipe, onion recipe or steak marinade...lots of options.

      Neither DD or I tend to like onions unless they are cooked, however we both liked these marinated onions. I used low carb tortillas and low fat sour cream. Still they were delicious. Going to use the left overs tomorrow and maybe try throwing the tortillas on the grill and crisp them up to see how they are that way. Thanks for the recipe!

      These are the best steak tacos I've ever made and eaten. Onions are the perfect compliment. I use jalapeno peppers and cayenne pepper since I really like the heat. The steak flavor is awesome. Don't forget the tequila. Fantastic recipe..Thanks
