    I wanted to love this recipe, but it I felt it lacked flavor. Maybe if I doubled the marinade and left it in for 24 hours or so. All the flavor I got on this was from the bottled sauce I used.

    (This review is for the marinade & cooking only). Left to marinade for 24 hours, and that gave it lots of flavor. Grilled to medium-rare and served on warm sprouted corn tortillas with grilled onion, guacamole & salsa. Perfect summer lunch! Will make this again!

    We are having a heat wave here in the San Francisco Bay Area and wanted a Mexican meal without heating up the kitchen. Made it just as it says, and it was a hit with the family. It's so simple, we may never do the ground beef tacos again. Thanks.

    I had only 12 oz of steak but used the full amount of marinade. I only marinaded it for about 2 hours since my BF came home from work starving... I used all the condiments recommended and made Recipe #60254 for the bottled taco sauce. Instead of regular sour cream I kicked it up a bit by making Recipe #239431. I really loved the flavor that the orange juice and lime juice gave to the steak... it was subtle but I loved the slight tanginess... and the lime crema really intensified those citrus notes. I can't wait to see how flavorful the steak is next time when I marinate it overnight. We loved this as a change from our regular beef soft tacos. Thanks for sharing!!!

    These are wonderful! We can't wait to have these again and so easy for a weeknight supper! I used low carb whole wheat tortillas and low fat Mexican blend cheese and low fat sour cream to lower the fat count a little - without doing anything to the wonderful tacos. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
