It doesn’t have to be Tuesday to be taco night, but the best tacos I can think of for a good Friday night dinner are flank steak tacos. There’s just something about the delicious, savory taste of steak in a taco that makes my mouth water just thinking about Friday night’s dinner. The key, of course, is a proper marinade and preparation.
I like to pick out the best flank steak I can find and marinate the meat for several hours in tequila and lime juice. The tequila and lime juice marinade oozes its way into the marbling of the steak, making it beautifully tender and providing a unique taste that you simply won’t find in steak tacos anywhere else.
If you’re worried about the alcohol and young eaters, remember that the alcohol content of the tequila will cook off completely during the grilling process. What will be left behind is a distinctive taste that perfectly complements the flank steak and keeps the meat tender and juicy.
For the grownups in your dinner party, be sure to accompany your flank steak tacos with an appropriate drink. I highly recommend the classic Margarita.
