Our Steak Soft Tacos recipe uses rich-tasting, economical flank steak. We sliced it thin against the grain, or else the fibrous meat was very tough. And cooking it any more than rare or medium rare toughened the meat and made it lose its beefy flavor. Our recipe calls for slicing the steaks before cooking and essentially “stir-frying" the meat. We found it difficult to sear a full steak indoors, but it’s easy to quickly cook the sliced steak in a couple of batches in a large skillet with smoking-hot oil in it.

Serves 6

To make cutting the steak easier, place the whole flank in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm up. Serve these soft tacos with shredded cheese, lettuce, sour cream, pickled jalapeños, and lots of hot sauce or salsa verde (see related recipe).
