If there’s one thing I love, it’s an amazing authentic Mexican meal! Growing up in a Mexican household, I was privileged to eat delicious authentic Mexican food on the daily, but I unfortunately never learned to cook like my abuelita did. Lucky for me, this morning chef Christy Vega of the renowned Casa Vega Mexican restaurant in Sherman Oaks, California joined Christian Slater and Dylan Dreyer on the “Today” show (on Friday, March 27, 2015) to make delicious authentic carne asada tacos (on corn tortillas and topped with guacamole, fresh salsa and lime).
I can’t wait to make these amazing carne asada tacos this weekend! Be sure to watch the instructional video below for details on how to prepare the carne asada.
Little known fact: Did you know that Christy’s father opened the famed Casa Vega restaurant in the 1950’s? It’s been a celebrity favorite for over 60 years! Cary Grant and Marlo Brando were regulars.
