Chef's Corner: Top Tier Tacos

Carne Asada tacos are most often made from hanger steak, skirt steak or flank steak. The meat is cut relatively thin (but not paper thin) and marinated, then quickly grilled, for a fast and amazing meal. It isn't called Alexander's PRIME meats for nothin'! Using prime meat for your tacos is an incredible treat. The beefy steak flavors melt in your mouth. Just remember not to overcook the meat! Here's how we like to prepare ours.
