    How much different does this taste than the flank steak ones I grew up eating with cilantro, lime, olive oil, jalepeno, and cumin?

      Hey Kevin,

      Thanks for asking 🙂
      As far as the meat goes, flank steak is a little tougher than tri-tip unless you slice the flank steak in the right direction. If done right both meats will have relatively the same tenderness. I’m assuming you’d probably season the flank steak, grill it and then cut it up. That way is awesome and is also a great way to do fajitas.
      As for the seasoning, it will taste different, as different ingredients will give different flavor. There are many different ways of seasoning carne asada. The way I seasoned mine is more of a San Diego “border” style.
      If you were to visit different parts of Mexico you’ll find each region has their own way of seasoning things so it basically boils down to what you like the most.
      Of course you could use the tri-tip from this recipe and add your own special blend of seasonings and it will taste similar to the ones you grew up with if that is the taste you’re after.
      So, as taste goes, from what you describe, and compared to this recipe they are both very good but will have different flavors.
      Hope this helps and Happy Cooking!

      Hi Carly,

      Thanks for the input, I think I have a few ideas for some Mexican style vegetarian dishes already. It may take a few weeks before I post anything as I have some other stuff in the works right now.
      Thanks for your suggestion, I look forward to more ideas 🙂

    These tacos are the best homemade tacos that I have ever had. I would definitely make them for my family and friends.
