Amarillo Lime Flank Steak

Serves: 6

INGREDIENTS

1-1/2 to 2 lbs Genuine Texas Angus Beef™™ flank steak
1 cup roughly chopped garlic (about 3 bulbs)
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 8 large limes)
1/2 cup clear tequila
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 bunch roughly chopped cilantro, leaves and stems
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
1 serrano pepper, seeded and diced
1 tsp cumin powder
1 T freshly ground black pepper
12 corn tortillas, wrapped in foil

GARNISHES

1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1 bunch radishes, cleaned, ends cut and sliced
1/3 cup grated queso fresco cheese
2 ripe avocados, seeded and sliced
3 vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into wedges
Hot sauce

DIRECTIONS

Combine the garlic, lime juice, tequila, soy sauce, cilantro, peppers, cumin and black pepper in a resealable plastic gallon-size bag. Reserve about a quarter of the marinade for later use. Add the steak and let marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator and let marinate at room temperature another 30 to 45 minutes. Preheat grill to medium-high. Remove steak from marinade Place steak on the grill and cook for 4 minutes. Turn 180 degrees and cook for 3 minutes more (to create cross grill marks). Flip over and finish cooking for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on desired doneness (an internal temperature of 145°F for medium). Put tortillas on the corner of the grill and flip package a few times to heat through while steak is cooking. Remove steak from grill to a cutting board and let rest, lightly covered, for 5 minutes. Slice against the grain and serve immediately with tortillas, reserved marinade and garnishes.
