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
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
- 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.
- 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.
