Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs flank steak (trimmed)
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tbsp cumin (or to taste)
  • 2 scallions (sliced (optional))
  • salt + fresh pepper to taste

For The Onions and Peppers

  • 3 medium onions (sliced into long strips)
  • 3 bell peppers (I used multi-colors, sliced into strips)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt + fresh pepper to taste
  • 12 6-inch flour tortillas

Instructions

  • (I like to season the steak a few hours ahead.) Pierce steak with a fork all over to tenderize. Season steak with cumin, garlic, scallions, salt and pepper. Allow steak to rest at room temp at least 10 minutes before grilling.
  • In a large grill-safe pan such as a clay Chamba or cast iron skillet combine onions, peppers, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss well to coat.
  • Place on the BBQ and cook on medium-low heat, tossing occasionally until onions are caramelized, about 20 minutes. This could also be cooked inside on the stove as well.
  • When the onions and peppers are done, set aside to keep warm on the top rack of your grill; raise the flame of the grill to high flame.
  • Discard scallion and sear steak 4-6 minutes without moving, turn the steak over and cook a few more minutes until rare or medium rare (well done will be too tough). Remove from grill and let it rest a few minutes before cutting.
  • Cut meat into small cubes and combine with the cooked onions and peppers and serve with tortillas, cheese, guacamole and sour cream.
