"Carnitas" usually means little pieces of fried pork or beef. At the edge of the Plaza in the heart of Santa Fe,
New Mexico, it means a delicious lunch. Roque's Carnitas Wagon parks here between Easter and Halloween and dishes out a hefty sandwich of grilled beef in a tortilla. It tastes best if you can cook the beef on a tight-knit grate over an open fire, but a hot skillet will do fine. Make the salsa in advance, as you want to eat this sandwich good and hot. Note also that the meat needs at least an overnight marinade before being cooked.

2 tablespoons oregano
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup salad oil
1/4 cup beer
1-1/2 pounds top round or sirloin sliced into 1/4-inch strips against the grain
1 large yellow onion, sliced thin
Green Chili Peppers
Combine oregano, garlic, soy sauce, oil, and beer. Marinate beef overnight or a
minimum of twelve hours, preferably twenty four. Drain beef and discard marinade.
Over an open fire, or in a hot, greased skillet, cook the meat, onion, and chili peppers (if using).
Grab a heap of ingredients, letting juices drain, and put on a large flour tortilla. Allow your loved ones
to add toppings desired that are already placed on table.
