Some Super Saffire Steak Tacos

Another Saffire recipe!

On very special occasions, my Dad would make arrachera steak on the grill. I remember him marinating it for hours and filling my tortilla with hot steak and cheese topping everything off with my mom’s homemade “chile” salsa.

I haven’t tried grilling arrachera in years. Every attempt tasted fine, except for being a little tough. After the Saffire entered my life, I knew the challenge of arrachera would be accepted.

Ingredients
  • 2 to 2 and 1/2 pounds of “arrachera” steak
  • Steak marinade (We used this one)
  • A dozen tortillas
  • Fresh lime, cilantro, onion
  • Freshly grated cheese – we used cheddar, though chihuahua cheese is also very good
Directions
  • Marinade the steak overnight
  • Fire up your Saffire Grill with Saffire’s All Natural North American Hardwood Lump Charcoal to 250 degrees
  • Place the steak on the secondary cooking grid and smoke direct for 1 hour.
  • Chop onions, cilantro and slice the limes.
  • Grate the cheese
  • Remove the steak from the secondary cooking grid and sear on the primary grid for 2-3 minutes per side. When finished, remove and let rest wrapped in foil.
  • Heat the tortillas on the grill (if you like them fried, use a cast iron skillet with some oil)
  • Unwrap the steak and slice
  • Assemble your tacos and enjoy!
