I mean I literally used onions and avocado as filler ingredients and it just made these flank steak tacos spectacular.

Also the great thing about making flank steak tacos is being able to swap out ingredients for whatever you like.

I could have changed cheeses, I could have roasted peppers and put them in there, or I could have simply changed the chimichurri sauce for a pico de gallo.

I think the beauty of being able to do this really comes down to how much time and money you want to spend.

Flank Steak Taco Marinade

Making a marinade for flank steak tacos is a great idea because of the impactful flavor it can provide.

Whether you use a wet marinade, like in these pork mojo tacos, or a dry rub marinade in this flank steak tacos recipe, you are doing the right thing.

Cooking Flank Steak Tacos

Since flank steak is a thinner potentially tougher cut of meat, it needs to be cooked quickly.

I start by getting a pan hot over medium-high heat and then adding in the marinated flank steak.

I usually turn the heat down to medium and cook it for 3 to 4 minutes per side until it’s got a nice browning on it and has a rare internal temperature.

If for some reason you want to go to medium rare, add about a minute or two per side, but I wouldn’t go far past that as flank steak can get chewy once you start getting into a medium internal temperature.

You definitely do not want chewy flank steak tacos.

Once your meat is cooked set it to the side and let it rest for 3 to 4 minutes before slicing it as thin as you possibly can and on an angle for these flank steak tacos.

Toppings for Flank Steak Tacos

The beautiful thing about these flank steak tacos is you can put whatever toppings on that you want.

I simply sliced up and lightly caramelized up some yellow onions since I knew they would go great on these flank steak tacos.

The other toppings I used were a simple slice of avocado, queso fresco cheese and chimichurri sauce.

Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri sauce is so easy to make and brings so much flavor to the table.

The herbs in a chimichurri sauce can be interchangeable a bit, but I almost always use cilantro, parsley and oregano.

Once you finely mince those up mix them with garlic, shallot, red wine vinegar and oil for a delicious chimichurri sauce.

I can promise you this, once you eat this chimichurri sauce you are going to want to put it on everything.

Serving Flank Steak Tacos

Once all of the ingredients are prepped up for this flank steak tacos recipe it’s time to serve them.

Add some thinly sliced cooked flank steak to a soft taco shell and load it up with chimichurri sauce, caramelized onions, avocado and queso fresco and boom, flank steak tacos!!
