From the LA Times
  • 1 bunch cilantro, cleaned and stemmed
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ½ small white onion, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-2 serrano chiles
  • Salt
  • 2 lbs. beef flap meat, or any very thinly cut and flavorful piece of beef.
  1. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except the beef, and a teaspoon of salt, or to taste. Blend the ingredients until liquid and rub the marinade all over the beef. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour, or up to 24.
  2. Preheat a grill to medium heat, oil, and grill the marinated meat until the edges are charred and the meat is cooked through -- about 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Slice into small pieces against the grain, and serve in steamed corn tortillas with chopped onions, more cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. And a Corona. And a nice view. And beautiful weather. And a lot of traffic. And the smell of flowers. NOW you're in the City of Angels.
