Fresh corn tortillas are the best carrier for this delicious recipe. Make sure to warm them on the grill alongside the steak for the best flavor.

Flank Steak Tacos
- Generously rub both sides of the flank steak with the mixed spices.
- Whisk together the pressed garlic, olive oil, and lime juice.
- Place the flank steak in a large bowl and pour the marinade over it. Cover with plastic wrap and let it marinate in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
- Preheat the grill to high heat and cook the marinated steak to your liking (rare, medium-rare, or medium-well). I prefer mine medium-well and it cooked for about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove the steak from the grill and cover with foil for about 10 minutes.
- Cut the steak into thin strips and place it into the corn tortillas. Add any topping of your choice. I added homemade Mexican salsa, red onion, avocado, iceberg lettuce, sour cream, cilantro, and queso fresco.
