Tacos must be one of the easiest meals to make. I think that is why it is one of the top go-to meals for a family.
It’s easy and flexible and you don’t have to worry about pleasing everyone.
Simply put all the toppings in separate bowls and let each person create their own personal taco.

I love dishes.
I also love cilantro:
Once the fire in my Big Green Egg was nice and hot, I tossed on the flank steak:

A dry steak will sear much better than a wet one.
Flank steak is thin so it is a very quick cook.
Once both sides are seared, let it rest so the juices can distribute evenly.

Each one you make can be a little different from the last:
If there is any Flank Steak leftover use it for sandwiches the next day:
Have fun with it. Get creative.
Most importantly, get outside and cook…
