  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Pat the beef dry with paper towels and put it in a large glass dish.
  3. Step 3

    Whisk together the chile sauce, cumin, garlic, salt and lime juice. Pour it over the beef and use a brush or your fingers to coat the meat entirely. Marinate the meat at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Cook the beef over medium heat on the grill to medium or your preferred temperature. Set the carne asada aside.
  5. Step 5

    Steam the corn tortillas by wrapping them in a damp towel and heating them in a 250 F oven for 15 minutes, or in batches of five tortillas in a microwave for two minutes.
  6. Step 6

    While the tortillas warm, cut the skirt steak against the grain into approximately 1/2-inch-thick strips. Stack two tortillas one on top of the other in a square of foil or on a plate and top with three or four strips of meat, and chopped onions, cilantro, and chile sauce or salsa, to taste.
  7. Step 7

    Enjoy the tacos immediately, or wrap them in the foil and eat them within 20 minutes.
