Recipe by Vic Voss
"I have had great success preparing tacos this way. I bought this recipe from a taqueria owner (taco restaurant) in Mexico City. I am translating the directions. It can be used for beef pork or just about any other type of meat. The spice mix on this recipe gives meat a really excellent flavor."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Made this using pork chops, turned out excellent. we are excited to try the marinade with steak. No changes to the marinade.
This had a good flavor, but it certainly has a long list of ingredients. Luckily, I had all the seasonings. I cut it down by half, and three people had plenty, with some leftover. We liked the flavor, but the vinegar seemed to predominate. I will cut back on that next time. I wondered about using two corn tacos, but after serving it on one, I understood the reason. One corn taco kind of fell apart, so two is a good idea, and there would be a stronger presence from the tortilla.
Made this using flank steak. Marinated overnight. Excellent flavor and tenderness.
This was yum. Cut Carne Asada into small chunks before marinating for 2 hrs. Omitted soy sauce, thyme and cloves. Added a dash of nutmeg and a 1/2 tsp chili pepper. Used juice of a lemon instead of the vinegar and used a tsp powdered onion and garlic. Stirred it up in bowl and tossed the chunks through. Sautéed on the stove adding a little water for sauce. Perfection on flour tortillas with cilantro, grated cabbage with a squeeze of lime and fresh tomatoes.
This was the bomb! Made it with chicken this time but would totally use beef or pork, and the only other change was to omit the anise seed...just because I didn't have any. Marinated my chicken over-night and then grilled it to perfection. Served on tortillas with a spicy chipotle sauce, and an onion/cilantro blend. Sooo yummy!
you hit a home run here Thank you
