Are tacos a waste of steak? Heard two people having this discussion.
>>12039307well you usually use lower value steak for tacos, but no, high quality steak in tacos is delicious
>>12039307Texmex anon here. Tacos use non steak cuts. Yes, it is possible to put steak in a tortilla, but most al carbon, a la plancha o al pastor o picadillo etc. tacos use non-steak cuts to the fullest.
Sometimes when I order steak fajitas I eat it right off the plate. Thanks for subscribing
>>12039307I dunno, i only eat hardshells with chili con crane in it with the toppings and what not
>>12039307No, but Americans are a waste of space.
>>12039307Tacos are the ideal transportation unit for tongueyou may not like it, but it's the truth
>>12039314Steak tacos I've been served have been pretty chewy. What do you mean by high quality steak, like searing up a nice ribeye and then sliding it in a tortilla?
>>12039487And what a large space it is! Haha
>>12039307I work at a taquiera and we use flank steak. It's a hard call, since incidentally steak taco's are our most popular menu item. But the steak costs so damn much, we make maybe sub 15 percent profit. Though I should say that a taco on it's own (onions cilantro radish lime salt) is probably the most exact paring to go with a nice piece of steak. The shell kind of get's in the way though, corn is minimal enough but flour is probably a step too far. All other additions though remain, to me atleast to be A1 tier. No avocado bitch, no verde, and for the love of god no baja sauce. Please just enjoy the work it takes us to make you this excellent taco.
>>12039307nothing is a waste if you enjoy it. but usually I thought taco meat was usually non steak cuts, lengua is the best
>>12039509just using more expensive cuts of meat like ribeye or ny strip instead of flank or round
>>12039307Let's be honest, steak is nothing special. I'll jump at the chance to shake it up with something like tacos.
>>12039307Its one of the best ways to eat a steak
>>12039307Steak really shouldn't be a taco filling. A taco eating situation and a steak situation really should be two very different things.
>>12039307only if made by pretentious fucksotherwise it's a good use of off cuts of meat
>>12039324>TexmexStopped reading there.
>>12039502I'd like to try cooking tongue but I always pass it by in the grocery because it's tongue.
>>12039549I fucking love tongue tacos holy shit
>>12039307Tacos are great for fatty organ meats. I only eat brain and tongue tacos, everything else just seems better placed as an entree with some sides.
As long as you enjoy it it's not a waste :^)>>12039324>Texmex
