For this easy taco recipe, we've topped skillet-cooked flank steak with a quick fresh salsa that takes advantage of perfectly ripe strawberries. Make the salsa while the steak cooks for a 30-minute dinner the whole family will love.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Season steak with 1/4 teaspoon each pepper and salt. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook, undisturbed, until slightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue to cook, adjusting the heat as necessary, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 120 degrees F for medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and let rest for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine strawberries, lime zest and juice, vinegar, honey and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

  • Thinly slice the steak against the grain. Stir shallot, mint and cilantro into the strawberry salsa. Divide the steak and salsa among tortillas. Serve with lime wedges and more cilantro, if desired.

Absolutely THE BOMB WONDERFUL. My only regret is that I didn t have quite enough fresh mint. I QUICK pulsed some of the not as ripe berries in small chopper I do herbs & shallot in so as not to lose one iota of the mint essence then diced the rest. Wouldn t change a thing. Any heat could be added to steak as far as I m concerned. Thankyou!!!!! Read More

I had taco shells at home so I used them instead. And I used cascadian wild raspberry balsamic vinegar. Next time I will cook the shallot. I cut up the steak after cooking it in the bbq. We both loved it. I will make this again soon. Read More
