Optional Toppings:

  • Marinate the Flank Steak:
        • Place the flank steak in a large plastic ziplock bag. Add lime juice, 1/4 cup of olive oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne, and other seasonings to the bag. Seal the bag and massage the marinade into the meat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 8 hours.
  • Prepare Veggies:
        • Combine sliced peppers and onions in a medium bowl. Toss them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat and Cook Steak:
        • Preheat the oven to a high temperature, around 600 degrees. Also, preheat a cast iron skillet in the oven. After marinating, remove the steak, sprinkle with salt, and cook in the skillet for about 4 minutes per side or until it reaches your preferred doneness. Remove and let it rest while cooking the vegetables.
  • Grill Veggies:
        • Place the seasoned peppers and onions on the same skillet used for steak and place back into the oven tossing often until sufficiently cooked and charred.
  • Slice and Serve:
      • Use a sharp knife to thinly slice the rested steak against the grain. Combine with veggies and serve in warm tortillas with your favorite toppings.

    Pro Tips:

    • Marinating Time:
      • For optimal flavor, marinate the flank steak for at least 2 hours, allowing the flavors to infuse.
    • Preferred Doneness:
      • Aim for medium-rare to medium with an internal temperature of 140 degrees for flank steak.
