  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest


  1. Start by marinating the flank steak. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Rub this mixture all over the steak and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat your grill or skillet over high heat. Cook the steak for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare or longer if you prefer it more well-done. Remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it thinly.
  3. While the steak is resting, warm the flour tortillas on the grill or in a pan for about 30 seconds on each side.
  4. In a small bowl, prepare the lime crema by mixing sour cream, fresh lime juice, and lime zest.
  5. Now, assemble your tacos. Place slices of steak on each tortilla and top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, red onion, and fresh cilantro. Drizzle the lime crema over the top.
  6. Serve these sizzling steak tacos immediately, and enjoy the explosion of flavors!
