Grilled Steak And Veggies Tacos Recipe @pinch

Nearly every element of these steak tacos is grilled. A fantastic dinner option when you don't want to turn on the oven. The steak is tender, hearty, and full of flavor from the marinade. It is a wonderful complement to the caramelized red onion and tangy grilled tomatillos. Crumbled queso fresco and sliced avocado add a bit of creaminess to every bite. Be prepared to make a full taco bar. You and your family will not be able to eat just one. Flat iron steak has become my favorite versatile cut of beef. It cooks quickly and has the rich flavor of more expensive steaks. The grilled vegetables and cheese make this taco irresistible! We rarely have any leftovers, which is a shame because the filling makes for an amazing omelet.
