Grilled Steak Tacos

Taco Tuesday is my favorite non-weekend day! I just love tacos.  Any kind of tacos, any toppings, any meat, any tortilla it fine. I would eat tacos every single day for every meal if I had a choice.  Unfortunately, I don’t do that. However, I do eat tacos probably more then the average person. I wonder how many tacos I’ve eaten over my life time.  Probably too many!

I’ve been trying to be healthy and lose weight so when I have that craving for tacos the best thing for me to do is make it at home. I then have complete control over what I put into the dish and I make it as guilt free as possible.

My favorite tacos, are steak! No question about it. Check out my steak street tacos recipe below.

Directions: Whisk together all marinade ingredients then add in flat iron steak. Marinade for at least 2 hours, turning a few times.

Remove from marinade and let excess oil drip off. Grill the steak over medium heat until cooked to your liking. Cut steak into pieces.  Add the meat to heated tortillas and add your preferred toppings.  I use chopped onion, cilantro and queso fresco and sometimes sour cream or guacamole.

These will be your go to steak tacos recipe. It’s much healthier then take out and taste just as good.

Take a look at the pictures below.

Marinated Grilled Flat Iron Steak

The weekend comes and goes so fast I always feel like I spend so much time cooking and meal prepping. So last night I decided to keep it super simple with some grilled flat iron steaks. I love steak and although I love cuts like ribeye and porterhouse I wanted to keep it a little healthier. I just started making flat iron steaks and I must say I love them. I make a super easy marinade and just throw on the grill! Check out below for the recipe! Super easy and delicious!

Grilled Flat Iron Steak
1-1.25 lb Flat Iron Steak

1/2-3/4 Cup Olive Oil

2 T Soy Sauce

1 T Red Wine Vinegar

4 Garlic Cloves, grated

1 lime, juiced

1/2 T Garlic Powder

1/2 T Onion Powder

1/2 T Dried Parsley

2 t Salt

2 t Pepper

Mix all ingredients above for the marinade. Add the flat iron steak and marinade to a large zip lock bag. Massage the bag to incorporate the marinade. Or place in a flat dish and cover and put in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 8-12. Massage the zip lock bag once during the time in the refrigerator or if in a bowl flip the steak once.
Grill on Medium High heat for 5 minutes on each side. (May need longer depending on the thickness.) Remove from heat and cover with foil at least 5 minutes to let rest!
I served with corn on the cob and mashed potatoes. Also great tossed in a salad or for steak tacos.
For the steak tacos I add about 1/4 cup chopped cilantro and 1/2 T of chili powder to the marinade. It will come out perfect for tacos!
