Food Truck Street Tacos

By Sharon Ng

I adore a good street taco. When I say street taco, it's not the same thing you would get ordering a taco at the local taco clock chain (think on that and you will figure it out). A street taco is comprised of meat (typically chicken or beef), onion, salt and pepper, and a healthy dose of cilantro. With a bit of salsa topping and a lemon or lime wedge, the result is a ridiculously fresh, tempting, drool worthy but healthy meal, that will make you feel like you have completely indulged.

Sometimes these little food truck gems are made with seafood, chorizo, and can include guacamole. Suggested sides are cabbage and sliced radish.

Here is how you can duplicate the Street Taco (and impress your friends):

Food Truck Street Tacos

1 pound thinly sliced beef steaks, or 1 pound chicken, sliced in thin strips and then cut again into cubes
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons cooking oil
12 corn tortillas
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 cup finely chopped onion

4 tablespoons salsa
2 sliced radishes
1 lime, quartered

Salt meat with garlic salt, then salt and pepper to taste. In a skillet, place cooking oil and heat pan to medium heat. Add seasoned meat. Cook meat until well browned. While meat is cooking, warm tortillas in pan or microwave. Lay out 2 warmed tortillas, overlapping them. Fill the tortillas with meat, then onion and cilantro. Squeeze fresh lime over tacos, and serve with radish and salsa as desired.
