Steak marinated in a delicious cilantro lime marinade and grilled to perfection, stuffed into tacos and topped with all the fixings!
- 2 pounds flank steak or skirt steak
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 lime juiced
- 1 clove garlic smashed
- 1 handful cilantro chopped
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ancho-chili pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Kosher salt to taste
- freshly ground black pepper
- 12 soft flour tortillas
- iceberg lettuce shredded or sliced
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.
Preheat your grill to 450-500°.
Once your grill is preheated, place the steak onto the hot grates. Close the lid and grill for 5 minutes. Flip and repeat for 4 to 6 more minutes or until the internal temp is 145°.
Transfer the steak to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 8 minutes before slicing.
Heat up some warm soft flour tortillas, layer with thinly sliced strips of the Cilantro-Lime Steak, shredded ice berg lettuce, pico de gallo and top with shredded Monterey Jack cheese!
