These grilled steak tacos only look fancy, but they’re actually quite simple and easy to make. The most important part of this recipe is obliviously the grilled steak, which requires minimal ingredients to marinate. You most likely have all the ingredients for the rub and marinade sitting at home right now. I like to load my tacos with a bunch of toppings. In the picture below I include what I put in my taco, but you are welcome to add or omit any of the toppings according to your liking. All the ingredients in this recipe can be found at your local Fred Meyer store.
