Marinated Flank Tacos with Pico

  • Total Time: 15 minutes


Units Scale


  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider or white vinegar
  • 1 pkg. McCormick Grill Mates Mojito Lime seasoning (or 3 Tbsp. if you have the large container of it)
  • 2 lbs flank steak
  • Corn or flour tortillas

Pico de Gallo:

  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced (or more if you like onion)
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 23 to tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime (or more if you’d like)
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, water, vinegar, and seasoning packet. Pour into a Ziplock bag and add the flank steak and toss with marinade until fully coated. Seal it up and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight (the longer the better!).
  2. Remove marinated flank steak from refrigerator and let it come to room temperature, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Grill flank steak over medium-high about 6-9 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the meat and depending how rare or well-done you want the meat. (Or you could heat a large skillet, add about 1-2 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat and sear the flank steak by cooking the same amount of time).
  4. When the steak is done, transfer it to a large plate or cutting board and cover it with foil and let it rest for about 5 minutes.
  5. To assemble the tacos, slice steak thinly against the grain and place in warm corn tortillas. Top with some fresh pico de gallo.
  6. To make the pico de gallo: Combine onions, jalapeños, tomatoes and chopped cilantro in a small bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice and gently toss. Add salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate until needed.


  • *You can buy the Grill Mates Mojito Lime in packets in the grocery store or you can buy a big container of it at Costco which is what I have because we love it and I use it all the time.
  • I didn’t really measure when I made my pico, so this is just a guestimate of what I did. Feel free to add more onion or jalapeno or whatever you’d like.
