    Things To Grab

    • Large resealabe plastic bag
    • Shallow dish
    • Charcoal or gas grill
    • Meat thermometer
    • Aluminum foil


    1. Trim fat from steak. Place steak in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Combine onion, orange juice, lime zest and juice, olive oil, jalapeno pepper, vinegar, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Pour mixture over steak. Seal bag; turn to coat steak. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 24 hours

    2. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill with greased grill rack for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until medium-rare (130 degrees), turning once halfway through. Loosely cover steak with foil; let rest 5 minutes.

    3. While the steak rests, grill tortillas a few at a time over direct heat until they begin to char, 1 to 2 minutes. Stack and wrap tortillas in foil to keep warm. Thinly slice steak against the grain; divide among tortillas. Add avocado, pico de gallo, and, if desired, cilantro.
