1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. lime juice

Directions

In a large bowl, combine all marinade ingredients except olive oil. Slowly stream in olive oil while whisking until marinade is emulsified. Reserve about 1/2 cup marinade. Marinate steak in large bowl for 20 to 30 min. Pat dry and grill to desired doneness, from 125 degrees for rare to 160 degrees for well done. Slice steak into strips, assemble tacos with desired toppings, and serve with reserved sauce.
