Ingredients
  • 2 pounds flank or skirt steak
  • Corn or flour soft taco size tortillas
For the Marinade:
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 whole garlic cloves or 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 jalapeno seeded as desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 orange juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
Optional Garnishes:
  • Cotija or queso fresco Mexican cheese
  • Pico de gallo
  • Avocado
  • Sour cream
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients for marinade in the bowl of a food processor. Process until well pureed.
  2. Place the steak in a baking dish large enough to allow it to lay flat. Spread the marinade mixture evenly over both sides of the steak. Cover dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 8.
  3. Grill steak until medium-rare to medium a hint of pink, about 7 to 10 minutes on each side. Remove to a cutting board and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain. Cut the slices down into pieces that will fit well in tortillas.
  4. Serve on warmed tortillas with desired toppings.
