This was delicious, I will definitely make it again. I followed one of the reviews and mixed all the toppings - corn, tomatoes, onion, etc - into a kind of salsa. I had to use canned corn, so I grilled the steak inside in a grill pan, then dumped the corn into the grill pan after the steak was done. I'll try this again in the summer with fresh corn.

I also mixed everything together, but if I was doing this for company, I'd probably keep them separate, not just so folks can pick and choose but because the whole thing gets a bit goopey...especially after a day or two of being in the fridge. Actually, this really doesn't work that well for the single cook, although I dug the use of arugula...man, I do love me some arugula. Also, for the rub, I'd leave the garlic out of the dry spice mix altogether and just rub a couple of sliced garlic halves over the steak before adding the rub, otherwise the garlic messes up the texture of the rub pretty badly, and I'd only add 1 TBSP of coriander. Oh, and just a reminder to myself and everyone else: flank steak should be cooked on high heat. Don't let those coals burn down to medium or you could end up slow cooking your flank steak into a rubbery and overcooked waste of meat.

This is our new favorite recipe for tacos. I make it for anyone that visits during grilling season.
