These rib eye street tacos are scrumptious and made with our leftover rib eye roast from Christmas dinner. We had a wonderful dinner and with the leftovers, we made these delicious street tacos, some cheesy rib eye enchiladas, and a rib eye hash brown egg bake, both of which will be posted on the blog a little later.
Beef Street Tacos
Street tacos can be made with all varieties of meats, from beef to chicken to pork and even shrimp. We always seem to have so much rib eye left over after our Christmas dinner (and it could be because the rib eye roast was 13 pounds this year). Having leftovers is one thing I look forward to with all the holidays. Being able to make other delicious meals for my family out of one meal is ideal.
How To Make Street Tacos
Start out by cutting the leftover rib eye into small pieces. Any leftover steak or chicken works with this recipe. Add the meat to a baggie, add seasoning, juices and marinate if time permits. However, this rib eye street tacos recipe was a quick and easy recipe and there was no time to wait. And in that case, heat oil in a cast iron pan and add meat. Sprinkle with seasoning, add juices and cook on medium letting the juice reduce a bit. Heat up the corn tortillas once the meat is heated thoroughly. Spoon meat onto the corn tortillas, top with onions and cilantro and enjoy. Pretty easy.
We like a little heat to our street tacos and added green pepper hot sauce along with Queso Asadero cheese. Street tacos can be made many different ways and when there is leftover meat, make street tacos.
These street tacos taste delicious and are always a favorite. We just moved into a new home and construction is still going on all around our area. There are a few taco trucks that park right outside our house at times during breakfast and lunch for the construction workers. It’s so nice to just go to the taco truck and get a delicious breakfast burrito or at lunch, get some authentic street tacos. So good. We like making our own but we’ve had plenty of curbside purchases lately. We will definitely miss the taco trucks once all the houses are built around us.
If you are a lover of rib eye, and a lover of tacos, you will definitely love these rib eye street tacos.
