Flank Steak Soft Tacos

 Spiced rare flank strips nestled in fresh warm tortillas—either corn or flour—make a delicious light meal. Add shredded lettuce and salsa if you like.

Cooking time: 8 minutes

Servings: 4

1 ½ pound flank steak

¼ cup red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon garlic granules or 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

8 corn or what flour tortillas

2 cups woodland greens, shredded romaine or red leaf lettuce, optional

Salsa, optional

  1. Trim the beef, then lightly score both sides in a crisscross pattern. Combine the vinegar, garlic and chile and rub on each side of the steak. Allow to set for about 10 minutes.
  1. Preheat the grill, stovetop grill, broiler or a heavy, seasoned skillet. Grill the steak for 4 minutes per side for medium rare.

Meanwhile, warm the tortillas in a plastic bag in a microwave oven for a minute or two or wrapped in foil in a moderate oven ( 350F) for about 10 minutes. Each guest can roll up slices of the beef in a tortilla and top it with salsa, if desired.
