My husband and I make steak tacos for dinner A LOT. It’s one of our favorite dinners that seems a little fancy for weeknight, but it’s actually one of the easiest and simplest dinners to put together. And it is so satisfying.
We use flat iron steak normally, and whenever it goes on sale at the grocery store I stock up and freeze it. We have used this marinade on other cuts of steak though, and it has always been so good.
I normally put the steak along with all of the marinade ingredients in a big ziplock bag in the morning and let it marinate all day. This is also a good time to make your pico de gallo and guacamole if you are making them on your own, but you can also buy them ready made from your local grocery store. If you’re interested in my go to pico and guac recipes, I will post them very soon!
Grill your steak until it reaches an internal temperature of 140-145 degrees, then allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. We slice the steak and then cut it into smaller bite size pizzas so they are good for taco scarfing 🙂
To serve, warm corn tortillas and top with the steak, crumbled goat cheese, pico de gallo, and guacamole.
1 flat iron steak (1.5-2 lbs)
Pico de gallo
1 medium jalapeño, thinly sliced
