I knew I wasn’t going to be able to stay in San Diego forever (FU, U.S. Navy), so I had to learn to make….-Nocturnus


  • juice of one lime
  • 1/2 cup oil (olive or peanut is what I prefer)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • a good fist full of cilantro, chopped
  • kosher salt
  • a few chiles, to your desired heat (i use a few serranos)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin


Step 1

Mix all ingredients in a good pyrex container. Make sure to kind of muddle the garlic and cilantro, to bring out the good flavor there. Drop your meat in and forget about it for about 6 hours. Go to Trader Joe's or something and get good tortillas. I like the slightly thicker, fluffy flour ones; get corn if you wish.

Step 2

o home and have a beer. Preheat your grill, or grill pan if you don't have a BBQ for about 15 minutes on as high a heat as you have. I mean, you want the siding on your house to be getting soft from the grill heat.

Step 3

Take the meat out of the container and let excess oil drain off, you don't want to napalm yourself. Cook for 2 minutes each side. Remove and let rest. Slice against the grain into strips, or chop for burritos.

Sides or toppings:
-homemade salsa/pico
-guacamole, if you like that sort of thing
-If you want cheese, I’d recommend feta, as it’s more toward the traditional mexican fare than crappy processed cheddar. And it’s infinitely better.
-black beans
