  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • ½ tbs smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 large red pepper sliced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • white corn tortillas
  • fresh cilantro optional
  • pico de gallo optional
  • guacamole optional


  • In a small bowl, create dry rub for flank steak by whisking together all spices (cumin through cayenne pepper.)
  • Rub spice mixture all over both sides of the steak and let sit 30 minutes or longer.
  • Meanwhile, mix onion and pepper slices with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Take two large sheets of tinfoil and create a large, over lapping square.
  • Place peppers/onions in the middle and create a sealed pouch to throw on grill.
  • Pre-heat grill to medium high.
  • Once heated, add flank steak and veggie packet to grill. For medium-rare doneness, cook steak 4 minutes per side, turning once.
  • Cook veggies for 10 minutes, flipping once.
  • Place white corn tortillas in tin foil and seal before throwing on the grill during last minute to warm.
  • Serve tacos with sliced flank steak, peppers/onions and toppings of choice. (I made a quick pico de gallo and guacamole for mine.)
