Vaca Frita Taco.

September 4, 2015


This vaca frita taco tastes as good as it looks. Vaca frita is basically a flank steak that is boiled with veggies and then shredded and fried up to a crisp. I decided to give this traditional Cuban dish some Mexican loving and make it into a taco. The night before, I pickled some radishes to add some color and tang to the dish. Enjoy homies.

What you need:

1 pound flank steak

1 yellow pepper

1 white onion

1 bay leaf

Salt and pepper

Pickled radishes

Cilantro for garnish



What to do:

1. Boil flank steak for an hour with the

onion, bay leaf and yellow peppers in a pot full of water.

2. Transfer steak to a cutting board and  season with salt and pepper if necessary, then shred beef.

3. Heat a pan on high with some olive oil and add the shredded beef until it becomes fragrant (up to 6 minutes)

4. Assemble taco with the vaca frita, pickled radishes, raw diced onions. Garnish with cilantro (Avocado is optional)
