Flat Iron Steak Tacos

A recipe by Julie Van Rosendaal

Flat Iron Steak Tacos

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 1 lb. Cal & Gary's flat iron steak
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • salt, to taste
  • canola oil, for cooking
  • soft flour or corn tortillas
  • chopped tomato, onion and avocado
  • salsa, guacamole or sour cream
  • fresh cilantro

How to Make It

Rub the steak with chili powder and if it came from the fridge, let stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Cook the steak on grill preheated to high heat for 5 minutes, until char-marked with a deep golden crust. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.

Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice the steak thinly across the grain. Serve in tortillas with chopped tomato, onion and/or avocado, salsa and cilantro.

Alternate cooking instructions: Heat a drizzle of oil in a heavy skillet (cast iron is ideal) set over medium-high heat, and once the pan is hot, cook the steak for 5 minutes, until it develops a deep bottom crust. Flip and cook for another 5-6 minutes for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.
