Hoisin and Lemongrass Steak Tacos

  • Save

I have to say these are some of the best tacos I’ve had in a while! So I got this awesome cut of skirt steak but it was huge and a lot of it. I figured I wanted to try something different since I’d more than likely use half for traditional fajitas. I had some Asian ingredients already laying out from earlier and thought I cant say that I’ve had Asian inspired tacos. So I went for it and I’m so glad I did. This tacos pack some serious flavor we were fighting over tacos by the end. Try them out and let me know what you think!
