Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Flank steak — For a more tender result, marinate the steak overnight. Make sure to slice the steak against the grain to ensure tenderness.
  • Chimichurri sauce — Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes according to your desired level of spiciness. You can also add a squeeze of lemon juice for extra tanginess.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a smoky flavor, you can grill the tortillas for a few seconds on each side before assembling the tacos.
  • If you prefer a milder flavor, reduce the amount of red pepper flakes in the marinade.
  • Serve the tacos with a side of grilled vegetables or a fresh salad for a complete meal.
