Flank Steak Fajitas

Flank Steak Fajitas
Servings: 4 Prep 20 mins Grill 11 mins to 15 mins


  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds beef flank steak
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado
  • 8 6 inches corn tortillas
  • Plain yogurt or light sour cream (optional)

Make It

1. Heat a charcoal or gas grill until hot (you should barely be able to hold your hand 3 or 4 inches from the fire), or use a grill pan or medium-sized skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, bring the steak to room temperature, pat it dry with paper towels, and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.

2. Grill steak until nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Move the meat to a cooler part of the grill and cook another 5 to 7 minutes, turning once.

3. While steak is cooking, preheat oven to 325 degree F. Chop the tomato, shred the lettuce, and slice the avocado; wrap the tortillas in foil and put them in the oven to warm.

4. When steak is done, cover and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting across the grain into thin slices. Serve the steak in the tortillas, topped with tomato, lettuce, avocado, and a dollop of plain yogurt or light sour cream, if you like.
