Expert Tips

Flank steak is used in this recipe, but several other cuts of beef would work well. Both sirloin and top round would be delicious. Both can be purchased in 1-lb increments. Grill as directed in recipe, and let rest before slicing.
Make it FRESH toppings ideas: diced avocado, fresh lime wedges, sour cream or crema.
