YES!! I have found a recipe that is just like the taco's we used to get from the taco truck! We lived very near LA and at night around 9, we would go to the same spot, and there was a little catering truck that sold all sorts of excellent tacos for about 75 cents each, the carne asada was my favorite and THIS is THE recipe!! I am so excited because we moved about 80 miles away and no taco truck:-( but now I can make my own! want a fabulous taco? this is the recipe for you, I also like to add fresh diced onion and cilantro. JR Tumas, I love you! My husband says they are identical also, we had them last night and I am still in heaven.
These are incredible. We had them for an informal Friday night dinner to meet our son's new girlfriend, but they would be just fine for something a little "fancier" as well. My husband had to make himself stop eating. I tripled the recipe and we had no leftovers.
A good recipe but not quite as flavorful as the best arrachera tacos I've had in Mexico and the US. I'm still searching for the missing ingredient.
