I told Mr. Wishes this was his best grilled steak we have ever made as it seriously melted in my mouth. We almost didn’t even want to put the steak into tacos and instead just eat it all right off the cutting board. I may have to eat this once a week…maybe twice.

Slicing grilled flank steak against the grain.I used only the best for these grilled flank steak tacos: Certified Angus Beef® brandThe flank steak is lean, flavorful, and should be thinly sliced against the grain when you go to carve it. It is great for marinating and best when grilled! It is a fairly inexpensive, flavorful, and versatile cut of beef.

Flank steaks are about a foot long when you buy them, about one inch thick, and cooked whole rather than divided into smaller individual steaks. You slice it up after grilling.

Juicy Steak. Avocado. Cilantro Lime Crema. All the flavors in these grilled flank steak tacos. I don’t hate it! The pizzazz and flavor magic really come from the tender flank steak, but the crema adds so much to it.  Bonus: they are gluten free if you have people in your life with dietary restrictions! Winning all around.

If there was a taco that I would always pick, this is it. These are SO good. They are fairly light too, depending on your beef cut you use. Flank steak is the way to go with these tacos, though.

Confession: I have never made a crema before. Why have I waited so long? It is creamy and zingy and I pretty much want to put it on everything now.

These tacos were amazing with my Best Homemade Ultimate Guacamole on the side. I also love tacos with my Cilantro Lime Rice served alongside it.

These grilled flank tacos are satisfying but don’t feel heavy. One of the best weeknight dinners, if I do say so myself! Not to mention the prettiest tacos that I ever did see. Look at those fresh, vibrant colors.

If ribeyes are more your thing, try my Grilled Ribeye Steak with Onion Blue Cheese Sauce I posted a couple of weeks ago also using Certified Angus Beef. When and if you don’t have a grill, feel free to cook either one of these recipes in a large cast iron frying pan or skillet.

If you love grilled tacos, be sure to check out Santa Monica Street Tacos which are also made with flank steak. I love those tacos with my perfect Mexican rice. Enjoy!
