Decidedly under the radar, El Asadero is where I retreat to when I need a pluperfect take on the treasured form of Bistec Ranchero. 15 miles south of Austin on fm 812 near Elroy, Texas sits this humble food trailer exhibiting a paragon of the form.
Plump, delicious strips of marinated beef are bathed in an impossibly delicious Ranchero sauce then served on scratch, corn tortillas.
No salsa is necessary but if you’re of a mind the little trailer puts out a thin, hot red that is wonderful. I’ve been eating here for years before or after my treasured drinking sessions at nearby Foolish Pleasure.
