1lb Flank Steak
4 OZ Top Shelf Gold Tequila
4 OZ Lime Juice
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
½ Sriracha Roasted Almonds
2 Diced Tomatoes
1 Diced White Onion
2 Tsp Kosher Salt
2 Tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
Marinade for the Streak
In a bowl, mix the Tequila, Lime Juice and Salt &
Pepper. Lay out the Flank Steak in a baking dish
and pour the bowl mixture over the steak. Add
Olive Oil to the top of the steak. Then, flip the
steak over and cover dish with plastic wrap. The
steak needs to marinate for a minimum of two
hours, or as long as ten hours in the refrigerator
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees and prepare
Heat an iron skillet on the stove and make sure
the pan is nice and hot. Add a little vegetable oil
to the pan and add the steak. Don’t touch the
steak. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes and then turn
over to cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from the stove and place into the oven
for 5 minutes.
In the meantime, lightly toast your tortillas in a
small frying pan and set aside.
Remove the steak from the oven and let sit on
cutting board for about 7-10 minutes. This allows
the meat to soak up all the juices while the
residual heat continues to cook the streak.
Slice the streak in small, thin, strips. Place into
the toasted tortillas.
