Grilled Steak Tacos

I promised you tacos. And when I promise tacos, I follow through.

These Grilled Steak Tacos are now being referred to as “The Tacos” in my house. In the past month, Boyfriend and I have made them about 234235 times. {Ok, at least 4. I’m an exaggerator. What else is new?}

Boyfriend says that these are the best tacos that he has ever had. I found this statement somewhat humorous at first, given how incredibly easy they are to make. But based on the reactions of everyone who has had them, I think he might just be on to something. Seasoned, perfectly-grilled steak, creamy guacamole, and crunchy Fire-Roasted Corn Salsa, all wrapped up in a charred corn tortilla…

I don’t know why you’re even still reading this. You should be making tacos, already!

Grilled Steak Tacos
Yield: About 12 tacos
For the steak:
  • 1.5-2 pounds flank or sirloin steak
  • 3 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
  • Kosher salt
For the guacamole:
  • 3 ripe avocados, diced
  • ½ red onion, finely diced
  • 1 large or 2 small jalapeños, seeded and diced
  • 1-2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1-2 limes
  • Kosher salt
  • Cilantro
For the tacos:
  • Corn tortillas
  • Corn salsa
  • Other optional toppings: cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, etc.
  1. Heat your grill to medium heat. While grill is heating, rub the taco seasoning into both sides of the steak. Sprinkle both sides liberally with salt.
  2. When grill is hot, place steak on grill, cooking for 3-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steak. Remove from grill and allow to rest for about 10 minutes.
  3. To make the chunky guacamole, stir together the diced avocados, onion, jalapeños, tomatoes, and garlic, and add lime juice, salt, and cilantro to taste.
  4. To char the tortillas, turn a gas stove burner to a medium-high flame. Place the tortilla over the flame (very carefully!), and turn with tongs when the tortilla starts to char, about 30 seconds. Wrap charred tortillas in a clean kitchen towel until ready to serve.
  5. To serve the tacos, slice the steak against the grain into ¼-inch slices. Allow your guests to build their tacos as they so desire!
