Cilantro-Lime Marinade and Flank Steak Tacos

{Serves 4 very hungry people}


Ingredients:

 

1 {2 lb} flank steak or skirt steak

1/3 cup Olive Oil

Juice of 1 Lime

1 Garlic Clove, smashed

A handful of Fresh Cilantro

2 teaspoons of Honey

1/2 teaspoon of Cumin

1/2 teaspoon of Ancho-Chili Pepper

1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

Kosher Salt and Fresh Black Pepper, to taste

 

Preparation:

In a mini food processor; place the cilantro, garlic and lime juice and pulse quickly until chopped. Toss the remaining  ingredients in with the cilantro/garlic and pulse until combined.

Marinate flank steak for 30 minutes on the counter top, bringing the meat up to temp before grilling it.

Grill the flank steak 6-10 minutes per side on medium-high heat. I found that on my grill, on medium-high heat, 6 minutes per side is good for a medium-well done steak. 

For the Tacos:

2 lbs. Cilantro-Lime Marinated Flank Steak, sliced thin

10-12 Soft Flour Tortillas

Iceberg Lettuce, shredded or sliced

Pico de Gallo {see my recipes}

Monterey Jack Cheese, freshly grated

Heat up some warm soft flour tortillas, layer with thinly sliced strips of the Cilantro-Lime Steak, shredded ice berg lettuce, Salsa Fresca {see my recipes} and top with shredded monterey Jack cheese!
