Round steak tacos
Step 1: Prepare the meat
The first step to making these tacos is preparing the round steak. In order to do this, you’ll need to cut your steak into thin slices (about 1/4-inch thick) so that they can cook quickly and evenly. You can also marinate them for extra flavor if you’d like!
Step 2: Make taco shells
To make these tacos look extra authentic, we decided to use tortillas instead of bread or buns. To do so, grab some aluminum foil and wrap it around each tortilla until it’s tightly sealed at both ends. Then place them in a baking dish filled with water until they’re soft enough for filling but still hold their shape well when removed from the oven later on–about 10 minutes should do it!
