This is an easy recipe to make for all you beef lovers. To start off, what is flank steak? And is it the same as skirt steak?

What is flank steak?

Flank steak is a long and flat cut of beef, used in a variety of dishes including London broil and as an alternative to the traditional skirt steak in fajitas. Flank and skirt steak are both long, flat cuts of steak. It can be grilled, pan-fried, braised, and of course broiled. It’s tender and delicious for tacos!

You can even cook flank steak for sandwiches, like this Flank Steak with Cocoa Chili Rub recipe!

Easy Flank Steak Tacos Recipe

Flank steak is a quick meal, too. You season it, set aside for about 10 minutes,  and then cook for only 4-5 minutes. Set out the toppings, quickly heat the tortillas, and your mouth will be watering!

It’s so easy, I told Paul, we should make this for our friends, who are great encouragers (and have taught me and my husband a lot). Do you ever do that? Think of a meal that is great, and then match it up with some friends you know who’d enjoy it with you?

Entertaining doesn’t always have to be elaborate! (big relief) :)
