Flank Steak Tacos

There isn't anything that screams summer more than grilling outside on a beautiful night. Well let's be real...I don't grill. I sit and watch J grill...but that counts right?  Besides being a DELICIOUS meal, I loved being able to spice things up from our typical grilling of burgers/sausages/chicken/. This was a really nice change!  

I also really love when meals are customizable. I am way picker than J so I appreciate when he can add things to his meals that I wouldn't normally serve in the dishes I make.   When I saw the recipe on "Point-less Meals" had avocado in it, I was completely sold.  The hardest part of this meal was really trying to take a decent taco picture. If anyone has suggestions, please send them my way. 

Flank Steak Tacos
Serves: 4
Cook time according to Rachel: 3 hours (2.5 hours to marinate the meat)
How difficult was this for Rachel? Easy!

1 2lb flank steak
8 tortillas
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp paprika
2 1/4 tsp cumin
2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
salt & pepper
Toppings (all optional but we used):
2 avocados
2 tomatoes
4 cheese Mexican blend
taco sauce


In a large bowl, combine all ingredients listed under the rub above. Mix well.

Note: This recipe has a small kick to it so beware when making the rub. 

Cover the meat completely on both sides in the rub.

Place meat in tinfoil & cover with any leftover rub in the bowl. Refrigerate for 2 1/2 hours.

Grill the steak to your liking.  

I prefer my meat cooked medium well & J prefers rare...so we met somewhere in the middle.
Slice the steak into cubes.

Make your tacos!
