  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 8 corn tortillas


  • Avocado, sour cream, queso fresco, red onion, minced cilantro


  • Put flank steak in a pan with rimmed edges. Pour juice of two limes over it. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat grill to high.
  • Combine cumin, pepper, salt, chili powder, smoked paprika, and garlic powder in bowl. After the steak is done marinading rub seasonings on both sides of steak.
  • Place steak on grill and grill 4 minutes, flip and grill for an additional 4 minutes. You'll want to reach an internal temp of 130-135 F for a medium rare - medium steak. Remove from grill. Let rest 10 minutes, then slice across grain.
  • Meanwhile prepare corn tortillas according to directions.
  • Place steak in tortilla shells, top with your desired toppings.


If you want to skip the grill simply grab a grill pan and prepare this flank steak on your stove top!
