    Recipe is good and with the right amount of toppings it is definitely worth it. Steak was expensive for the kind listed and the seasoning was good but a little light on flavor. Definitely give this a try it’s delicious and will be worth the time.

    Was amazing. I followed someone else advice about putting more lemon juice then cumin. Cumin is a strong spice. I am not a big fan but they came out amazing. My 9 year old daughter loved them. I also put some lemon juice on the toppings (onions, and cilantro and added avocados) was super delicious.

    I would call it Asian fusion Mexican taco. The soy sauce and garlic takes away the authenticity, but it’s a good marinade.

    I made it for family and they loved the marinate for the meat! I also made a pick de Gallo to combine the onions and cilantro which turned out great!

    The best tacos ive ever made!! I have four adult teenagers who live at home and i try to change up recipes when i get the chance. These arent your everyday boring hamburger tacos. Lots of flavor and easy to make since i have a butcher who dices up the meat for me. i highly recommend these gor s true taco treat!! i made refried bean and guacamole on the side along with crema and queso fresco. Delicious!!

    Bomb AF and super easy! Definitely would add jalapeños to this or some red pepper or red paper flakes to the marinade. Making this again for sure!

    so simple and so tasty. I added minced jalapenos with the onions an cilantro to give it a bit more heat, but that meat is delicious.

    I personally would've enjoyed a bit more of a spicy taste, but all in all I really enjoyed making and eating it!

    I used these for meal prepping this week. The only substitutions I made were green onions and regular soy sauce. I also used olive oil because that was all that I had on hand. All in all, the flavors went together wonderfully. This was my first time cooking steak, so I'd like to try again with chicken next time.
