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 awesome...so 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

So good and healthy!! My BF loved these tacos. I reduced the marinade into a sauce (I simmered and boiled the sauce until the sauce thickened with a 1-2 tbl of cornstarch) and served a little sauce on top of the tacos. Thank you for this recipe.

I liked this recipe very much. My BH loved the steak, very very tender. We used a NY strip (1 1/4" thick), poked holes to marinade, then grilled whole 20 minutes. I agree with Pismo, not as complicated as it seems. I preferred the flour tortillas, tried both ways. I also used Manchego cheese, very nice. My BH enjoyed the onions. I personally can't eat raw onions, but enjoyed all the rest. Will be doing this one again as a "special" taco.

These turned out SO good! I thought the recipe was going to be more labor intensive than it actually was. Super easy and delicious! This is a new favorite around here. Thanks!

Terrific flavor! Zippy lime... the red onions are perfect (although I'd cut that part in half next time because there was a lot of onion leftovers). Too much snow, broiled these inside. Skipped the tortilla cheese steps completely. Served steak on warm corn tortillas with the red onion & guacamole. Nothing else was needed- it had a lot of flavor on it's own. Thanks!

We loved these! Very fresh tasting soft tacos. I used the orange juice + lime juice and omitted the tequila (not by choice, the liquor store was closed). I did not have Ancho chili pepper so I used regular ground chili pepper and added a dash of liquid smoke to the marinade. Next time I will eliminate the 2 t. salt as they were just a bit too salty for our taste. We didn't feel like firing up the grill so I grilled the steak in my grill pan on the stove. The steak turned out perfectly and was very tender. I offered my guests all the suggested toppings plus chopped fresh cilantro, chopped tomato, and sour cream. The onions were very good...the lime juice really mellows them out. I did skip the step about putting the cheese on the tortilla and then melting in the oven...we just sprinkled the shredded monterey jack cheese as we each "built" our tacos. Great recipe! Thank you, we will be making these again.

These are the best tacos I have ever had anywhere, ever. As a personal preference, I cut the ancho powder and tequila in half and added red pepper flakes. Although I thought the onions were delicious, thought they distracted from the yummy goodness of the steak. I don't think I will make tacos or fajitas any other way, ever, and I make Mexican a lot!
