Grilled-Steak Soft Tacos

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1 taco)
The sweet, caramelized flavor of grilled corn makes an excellent addition to steak tacos. The arugula is an unexpected topping, or you can use shredded lettuce. Omit the pepper slices for delicate palates.

  • 1 (2-pound) flank steak, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Combine lime juice and steak in a large zip-top plastic bag, and seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning bag occasionally.

  2. Prepare grill.

  3. Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Combine cumin and next 4 ingredients (cumin through garlic); rub over both sides of steak.

  4. Place steak on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 8 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place on a cutting board; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

  5. Place corn on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 8 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Cut kernels from ears of corn; discard cobs.

  6. Heat tortillas according to package directions. Divide steak evenly among tortillas; top each serving with about 1/4 cup corn, 1/4 cup arugula, 1/4 cup onion, 2 tablespoons cilantro, 2 tablespoons tomato, 2 tablespoons avocado, and 1 tablespoon jalapeño. Fold tortillas in half. Serve with lime wedges.
